Omega Constellation Master Chronometer Small Seconds

In 2016, OMEGA’s iconic Constellation line enhances with the addition of a Master Chronometer certified timepiece that has successfully undergone the intensive tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), giving the wearer full confidence in terms of accuracy and performance.
In designing the new small seconds version, OMEGA has looked into many of the popular attributes of recent Constellation models. The combination of stainless steel and 18K red gold delivers a warm aesthetic style, while the gentle, white pearled mother-of-pearl dial adds to the simple and elegant effect.
This Constellation model’s impressive dial boasts a unique small seconds indication at 9 o’clock. With four diamond markers, the subtle inclusion offers a unique extension to the collection. To offer balance in this new style, OMEGA has also moved the date window to 6 o’clock.
Other stunning additions include the diamond-paved bezel and sapphire crystal caseback that enables viewing of the new Master Chronometer calibre 8704.
