Home | News | OMEGA Constellation 38 mm Day-Date

Thirty years after the claws, or “griffes”, made their debut, the new Constellation 38 mm Day-Date introduces a brand-new movement, the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8602/8612. Part of OMEGA’s family of proprietary Co-Axial movements, it is the first to feature day and date indication with instantaneous jump.

Its superb timekeeping performance and stability are enhanced by the Si14 silicon balance spring. The Constellation 38 mm Day-Date is delivered with a four-year warranty. The display, with its facetted 18 Ct gold central hour, minute and seconds hands coated with Super-LumiNova, is highlighted by the date window at 6 o’clock and the day window at the 12 o’clock position.
Just above the date window is the familiar Constellation star. The 38 mm brushed case with polished claws is available in a range of metal options including 18 Ct red or yellow gold, in bicolour versions blending 18 Ct red or yellow gold and stainless steel.
The brushed bezel has dazzling Roman numerals that are set with 116 full-cut diamonds with a combined weight of 0.13 carat. The screw-in caseback has a sapphire crystal that makes it possible to see the new movement in action. The watches have bracelets that correspond to their case metals.
The new OMEGA Constellation 38 mm Day-Date is water resistant to 10 bar / 100 metres / 330 feet.
