Shin­ing bright

WITH a name in­spired by the stars, the watch has been a sym­bol of lux­ury and pres­tige since 1952. For this new Con­stel­la­tion col­lec­tion, Omega has re­tained the clas­sic look of its iconic an­ces­tor but re­de­fined it with a new aes­thetic. The Con­stel­la­tion Tahiti’s mother- of- pearl dial with di­a­mond in­dexes is en­cir­cled in a stun­ning di­a­mond- paved bezel. The pol­ished claws are im­me­di­ately recog­nis­able, as is the pol­ished crown em­bossed with the Omega sym­bol.

This beau­ti­ful time­piece is a stand­out watch, which is of­fered in a range of six quartz watches and three au­to­matic watches. With its date win­dow now repo­si­tioned to 6 o’clock, the 27mm au­to­matic Tahiti is not just easy- to read, but beau­ti­ful to look at.

Though this par­tic­u­lar watch blends stain­less steel with 18K red gold, the se­ries of­fers a choice of styles – in­clud­ing stain­less steel with 18K yel­low gold, or stain­less steel only, for those who pre­fer a sim­pler, more clas­sic look. This choice of ma­te­ri­als is ex­tended to the hands as well. Ei­ther choose a pol­ished facetted 18K gold or rhodium plated hour- minute hands, or both in the mix. All bracelets cor­re­spond ac­cord­ingly and are held to­gether with but­ter­fly clasps fea­tur­ing an 18K gold Omega logo.

From the stylish ex­te­rior, turn in­ward to ap­pre­ci­ate the “heat” that pow­ers the watch. Therein lies the Omega o- Ax­ial Cal­i­bre 8520, an of­fi­cially cer­ti­fied Chronome­ter. This beau­ti­ful move­ment pow­ers all three au­to­matic watches in the se­ries.

In watch­mak­ing, the name Con­stel­la­tion has been closely linked with the art of cre­at­ing lux­u­ri­ous pre­ci­sion watches at the high­est level. The Tahiti proves to be no dif­fer­ent, with it be­ing a com­bi­na­tion of el­e­gant de­sign and ul­tra- pre­cise move­ment.
