Omega Constellation Ladies Watch Review: Chronometer, Quartz, Quadra, Diamonds
Omega Constellation Women's
Omega Constellation ladies' watches introduce various jewelry and color decorations, building up on the fundamentally unchanged bezel and bracelet design we discussed in gents' timepieces. Movement variety also echoes that of the men's collection, including Swiss quartz, automatic self-winding, chronometer and chronograph calibers.
This long list might appear surprising considering the dress/fashion trend of Constellation Ladies – but then Omega always insist on providing an alternative not only for the aesthetic, but also for the mechanical part of the watch.
Several unique divisions expand this line into one of the brand's most versatile and visually exciting. Luxury Edition pave the bracelets with diamonds, and feature a rarely used by the company white gold; Iris and My Choice pieces embellish the dial with colored stones; two square models add geometrical diversity that gent's department cannot yet boast.
Leather straps and deep purple and marine blue shades enrich the texture and the palette of several fashion Quartz models, and deepen their emotional scope with traces of mystery, and even secrecy.
This is a true fashion jewelry watch collection for the ladies. The dials and the bracelets become subjects of ornament, presenting a canvas of polished gold, accommodating numerous diamonds encrusted in wave-like, spiral-like, or straight modules.
An asymmetrical, executed in diamonds sunburst motif unfolding on some models crowns this design with luxurious gusto.
Blancpain Octopus Ladybird watches make for an interesting comparison: though opting for darker faces and fewer diamond modules, the two brands still call for one another.
Iris and My Choice timepieces – jewelry connoisseurs will recognize the sound of high-end luxury in these conceptual titles – step into playful, colorful territory that's somewhat distant from the majority of Omega's assortment.
Diamonds, stainless steel and yellow and rose gold form the case&bracelet configuration that encompasses the dials – the cherry on top of this design. Mother-of-pearl faces host on their milky iridescent surface a set of colored stones, and evoke a dreamy, floating sensation. Cooler, steel on steel versions counterbalance the bright vivacity of gold and two-tone watches.
Appearing like a compressed Iris '95, Quadrella is the more conventional watch between the two rectangular lines in Constellation ladies. The colored stones and the mother-of-pearl are still there, enveloped by a soft tonneau case, and supported by a metal bracelet or a leather strap.
The square Quadra, on the other hand, is more adventurous in shape, materials, and movement. Built as a chronograph, it shows matching square subdials, diamonds in jewelry variations, and leather or fabric straps. Notable similarities include Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Squadra and, even more surprising, Roger Dubuis Kingsquare.
