The replica Omega Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer 41mm watch, the biggest highlight in the design, or the reason why the Constellation watch suddenly becomes cool and the sense of movement instantly increases, is the use of ceramics on the bezel-the bezel is black Or made of blue polished ceramic. Only one entry 41mm constellation bezel does not use ceramics, the other 7 are all ceramic bezels, particularly cool black or blue. The Roman numeral scale on the ceramic bezel is made of OMEGA’s original OMEGA Ceragold® technology or Liquidmetal™ alloy; the only one with a stainless steel bezel, the Roman numeral scale is also blackened. You see, a seemingly simple bezel operation is behind Omega’s advanced watchmaking strength.
Replica Omega Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer 41mm, the case retains its radial and straight-brushed surfaces, depending on the areas, as well as the nice polished bevels on the sides to bring some dynamism. The crown is conical, as most modern Omega watches, a sapphire crystal is found on both sides of the watch and the water-resistance is rated at 50 metres. If the signature claws/griffes on the sides are retained and executed in the same metal as the case, the bezel itself is now made of polished ceramic, adding contrast and a sportier touch to this elegant offer – note that one steel model retains the steel bezel with blackened Roman numerals. In the two versions we had with us for this hands-on session, the bezel was either black with silver LiquidMetal Roman numerals or, on the Sedna gold model, dark blue with gold Ceragold Roman numerals, thus matching the colour scheme of the dial.
The dial of this new Omega Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer 41mm retains the style that was introduced with the 39mm model. This means a new handset, with a thinner profile, and slightly longer but also thinner applied hour markers. The hour markers are still triangular and faceted with a combination of a brushed top surfaces and polished edges. The date has been moved to the 6 o’clock position, a recurring thing for modern Omega watches.
The steel model of replica Omega Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer 41mm is equipped with a finely textured silvered dial, a bit ‘snowflake’ in style, with hands and indexes matching the bezel. Discreet but visible enough to introduce a note of modernity. The other model, a blue on Sedna gold version, has a smooth blue dial with gold-coloured fittings – a nice choice to tone-down this gold. To underscore its more casual and sportier mood, Omega has fitted the watches with an integrated leather strap with an anti-bacterial rubber lining. Supple and comfortable, these are closed by a folding clasp.
