The Swiss watchmaker’s Constellation, which is studded with diamonds, is a statement timepiece that the important women in your life deserve.
Tomorrow’s is Mother’s Day, and if you’re still looking for a standout way to honor the woman who raised you, Omega has a mom-and-daughter gift idea: its Constellation, either in 18k Yellow Gold, or Sedna Gold.
The Constellation was first launched as a Chronometer in 1952, and is named after the eight stars emblazoned on its crest. This was meant to represent the eight precision records the Swiss watchmaker in the middle of the 20th century.
Thirty years later, when the Constellation Manhattan was introduced, the timepiece got its signature claws. This element is still reflected in the newer iterations of the watch. The Manhattan got a makeover in 2009, with the claws, dials, and other elements updated and refined.
Among the two pieces that Omega recommends that you gift your mom is its 29 mm Constellation in 18K yellow gold and stainless steel. It has a diamond-paved bezel, diamond hour markers, and a date window at 6 o’clock.
The hands, OMEGA logo, Constellation star and diamond holders, all in 18K yellow gold are all contained within a mother-of-pearl dial. The Swiss brand’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8700 is visible through the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Different ways to shine
Omega’s second suggestion, the 29 mm 18K Sedna gold model also has a diamond-paved bezel, mother-of-pearl dial with diamond hour markers and a date window at the 6 o’clock position. The bracelet, hands, OMEGA logo, Constellation star and diamond holders are in the brand’s proprietary 18K Sedna gold. This timepiece is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8701.
These Constellation watches have much in common and work great as a pair. This can be a joint gift idea worth considering for those wishing to celebrate the magical bond between mother and her child.
