Technical and visual features of Constellation Quartz watches
The models of the Omega Constellation
, which were initially produced exclusively with automatic movements, were not offered as quartz models
until 1975. The newer models of the Omega Constellation are still largely based on the design of the “Manhattan” models
introduced in 1982. The quartz watches also have an integrated bracelet and are equipped with four “claws” that make it look somewhat chunkier from side on. In addition to the engraving of an observatory and eight stars on the back, other distinctive stylistic features of Constellation Quartz watches are the star at the 6 o'clock position on the dial and the series name written in italics.
Throughout all the updates
to the Constellation series
, the hours and minutes hands have remained the same and are designed in the spirit of the 1960s as sword hands. As on the 1995 models, the Roman numerals are now engraved on the raised bezel instead of on the dial which was the case on earlier models.
In 1995 another update
to the appearance was made. The flat sapphire crystal was replaced by a domed watch face, which also had a narrower diameter so that the bezel no longer touched the crystal face. As a result, the claws
lost their functionality but became a purely decorative element and a trademark of the Constellation collection
. The date window also saw a slight change in its shape: while it was originally rectangular, it was given a trapezoidal silhouette thereafter. The calibre also changed, and the quartz models were no longer based on the chronometer-certified Omega Calibre 1422 (a refined ETA Flatline II movement), but rather on a movement that was even better still – the ETA Flatline III movement
Nowadays, the Omega Constellation Quartz
is available for both men and women. The brand has recently started using its in-house Calibre 1532
, which has a battery life of 25 months. Visually speaking, virtually any combination is possible. Two-tone versions with yellow or red gold are available as well as models that have been embellished with diamonds.
Price overview of the Omega Constellation Quartz series
The new Constellation Quartz models
are priced between €1,500 and €3,500, while you can get a certified pre-owned Omega Constellation Quartz from the 1990s for less than €1,000.
With a pink mother-of-pearl dial, diamonds indices and a stainless steel case and bracelet, the Constellation Quartz (Ref. 126.96.36.199.57.002) comes across as a very fashionable timepiece. A pre-owned model from 2016 in very good condition, including the box and the corresponding papers could be yours for €1,930.
Equally fashionable, but with a mother-of-pearl dial and star pattern, is the Constellation Quartz Ref. 188.8.131.52.05.002 model. With a rose gold bezel set with diamonds and a 24 mm case, you can buy these second-hand Constellation quartz models for around €3,300.
The Constellation Quartz (Ref. 184.108.40.206.02.002) is more of a classic style and features a yellow gold bezel with matching parts on the case and a silver dial. With a 35 mm case, this timepiece is also well suited for men. For a price of €2,630, you will receive the watch, box and papers from 2013.
The Omega Constellation Quartz (Ref. 220.127.116.11.55.001) ladies' watch showcases a mother-of-pearl white dial with diamond indices. The case measures 24 mm and houses the Calibre 1376. We have this model available now for €4,900.
Is a white dial a touch too classy for you? The Constellation also features a mesmerising black supernova dial. You can buy a pre-owned Constellation Quartz (Ref. 18.104.22.168.51.002) for €56 per month or buy it outright for €2,900.
If you want to grab a real bargain, you should check out the Constellation Quartz (Ref. 396.1070.1). This model was produced in the mid-90s and was pivotal in the design of the series. You can purchase this model for less than €1,000.
Clean lines, a black dial and robust stainless steel: this is the Constellation Quartz (Ref. 22.214.171.124.01.001). With 35 mm diameter and a water resistance of 100 metres, this model can be found on the pre-owned market from as little as €1,000.
40 years of tradition: the Omega Constellation Quartz
The Omega Constellation series
was launched in 1952
when Omega won the Geneva Observatory Chronometer competition for the eighth time, setting a world record at the time. To this day, this fact is celebrated with an engraving of the observatory and eight stars that represent the number of titles won.
In 1982, Omega then introduced the Constellation “Manhattan”
, which changed the design of the series considerably. These models had thinner profiles and established the integrated bracelet and the four “claws” to hold the watch glass in place, with two at 3 o'clock and two at 9 o'clock. The "Manhattan" models were first released as quartz models
, before they were also offered with an automatic movement in 1985. In 1995, the Constellation was given its last major update, which since then has shaped the image of the Constellation collection as we know and appreciate it today.
Discover more Omega Constellation series
The Omega Constellation Quartz
still has a permanent place in Omega's catalogue, but there are plenty more versions of the Constellation. With over 60 years of Constellation history, some very special sub-series have been developed:
If the square case shapes that made Cartier so prominent appeal to you but you still want to remain loyal to Omega, the Constellation Quadra is made for you. Despite a width of just 24 mm, the series still stands out with its diamond embellished bezel.
Launched in 2003 with the intention of giving the series a sporty update, the Constellation Double Eagle is now a well-established style. The finish is one of the highest quality Omega offers at this price level. Newer models even feature a perpetual calendar complication.
Some of the most in demand models in the Constellation collection are the vintage models from the 60s with the so-called “Pie Pan” dials. The models are in full yellow gold and are a real eye-catcher with the 12-sided angular edge dial.
As the name suggests, the Constellation Day-Date is an extension of the date only model with the addition of a day display. It also boasts a co-axial chronometer with the famous Omega Calibre 8602.
While it lacks the characteristic claws of the series, the Omega Constellation Globemaster collection features a sapphire crystal back. As a classic dress watch, Omega has completely re-imagined the Constellation series with the Globemaster, creating an outstanding timepiece for office and evening wear.
