The pioneering spirit that has taken the Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega to the Moon, helped it conquer the oceans’ depths, and time the world’s most important sporting events, has now allowed the Swatch Group team to create a new, patented 18K rose gold alloy whose color is not only beautiful but enduring. This new alloy that stunningly blends three elements including gold, copper and palladium, has been named by Omega as ‘Sedna gold’, taking reference from a trans-Neptunian ‘reddest’ object which astronomers called Sedna, which is the same name as an Inuit goddess who is said to live at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. Now for the likes of discerning watch enthusiasts, Omega has introduced its 18K rose gold alloy in a special edition Constellation Sedna wristwatch that seemingly blends the timeless aesthetic appeal of a legendary watch family with the world premiere of an innovative material. The watch is set to be produced in a limited edition of just 1,952 examples, signifying the year Omega debuted the renowned Constellation watch family, which includes the Double Eagle Co-Axial Chronographs, and the Omega Seamaster 1948 Co axial London 2012 limited edition watch.
Especially created to ensure that the unique rose gold luster of the watch case will be long-lasting, the Sedna gold also forms the watch’s indexes, hands, and the clasp on its strap. This distinctive timepiece has a polished casebody with a brushed bezel emboldened by tone-in-ton Roman numerals.
Further, it has luxurious silver ‘pie-pan’ dial inspired by that of the very first Constellation launched back in 1952.
Water resistant to 100 meters, the Constellation Sedna Chronometer 38mm comes equipped with Omega’s innovative Si14 silicon balance spring and the Co-Axial calibre 8501, which is visible through a sapphire crystal caseback, and will be delivered in a special wooden presentation box with a rose-colored lining.
Also, we have recently seen the OMEGA Ladymatic wristwatch which was beautifully adorned in 18 ct red gold with almost 900 diamonds, to make it one of the dazzling stars of its range.
