Omega extends its Constellation collection with multiple new meteorite references

The new collection includes 20 watches with meteorite dial, with five colour choices spread across four categories
Inspired by the precise movement of the stars, the Omega Constellation collection, launched in 1952, is one of the most celebrated collections of the brand. Going along with the theme of the line, the brand has now unveiled 20 new timepieces whose dials are made with Muonionalusta meteorite, which is over 4.5 billion years old and is known as the oldest meteorite on Earth; every slice of this shooting star is unique and hence no two dials made from it will ever be same.  

All the new watches are finished with the brand’s advanced colour treatment technologies such as PVD and galvanic treatments so that one can choose from a large variety of watches. The 20 watches are spread across the following  four categories - 41mm Co-Axial Master Chronometer, 29mm Co-Axial Master Chronometer, a 28mm selection, and a 25mm selection. 

The 41mm category features three steel-on-steel models, a Sedna™ Gold model, and a Moonshine gold reference. The meteorite dial has elongated hour markers and a trapezium date window at 6 o’clock and the colours that are introduced in the line are blue, green, pink, yellow, and grey with black ceramic bezels. The bezels feature laser-ablated Roman numerals and polished claws. Powering the timepieces is Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, boasting a power reserve of about 60-hours. 

The 29mm Co-Axial Master Chronometer category entails bi-colour novelties crafted with 18K yellow gold, Senda Gold, or steel. Their watch case features diamond set bezel and the meteorite dials (purple, green, pink, yellow, and grey) are incorporated with diamond hour markers and a round date window at 6 o'clock. The steel models are equipped with Omega 8700 calibre, while the gold ones are powered by Omega 8701 calibre, both boasting a power reserve of about 50 hours. 
The 28mm selection comes in stainless steel, 18K Sedna™ Gold, and yellow gold as well. It also carries diamonds on its bezel and as hour markers, but the meteorite dials (ice blue, lavender, green, yellow, and grey) are devoid of date window. There is a Constellation Observatory medallion engraved on the caseback. The quartz calibre Omega 4061, runs the watch for approximately 48 months. 
The 25mm watches are smaller versions of 28mm watches. However, the dial colours in the selection are - grey, silvery rose, yellow, green, and lilac. The same quartz movement as above powers the watches. 

All the watches are completed with the matching bracelets.
