Omega Unveils Its New Two-Tone Constellation Petite Seconde Watch
Regardless of the season, the only thing we need to complete the fashion game is the watch. A captivating alternative to boring jewelry that we will not be able to part with after a while. Ladies, Omega just introduced a timepiece worth your attention like no other — the two-tone Omega Constellation Petite Seconde.
In my previous article, I talked about the Sedna gold Constellation Petite Seconde which is an effortlessly modern ladies’ watch with a distinct edge. This one is different — luxurious yet utilitarian. Its classic style makes it a very versatile option. That trait is exacerbated by its slick bicolor case.
The Chestnut Dial
The two-tone Constellation Petite Seconde’s timeless aesthetic and delicate craftsmanship is something that any woman should consider. The swirl of diamonds set on a chestnut dial highlights grows in size towards the 12 o’clock marker, skillfully balancing the visage with the six o’clock sub-seconds dial. Skeletonized rose gold hands are a delicate touch that neatly side-steps the potential pitfall of adding unnecessary visual weight to the dial design. I believe the dial is doing a great job here. It feels distinctive and very contemporary.
Iconic Two-Tone Bracelet
It is hard to overstate the value of a well-designed, well-executed bracelet. t’s no surprise that this iconic, two-tone design looks simply captivating. The mid-bar links in Sedna Gold add this laid-back sophistication. The bracelet itself is solid, feminine, yet modern with polished mid-bar links. Moreover, the clasp comes with a release that allows wearers to adjust the bracelet by 2mm.
The 8803 Movement
With more women being drawn to mechanical watches, the 34mm two-tone Constellation Petite Seconde has been installed with the self-winding caliber 8803. The movement features hours, minutes, small seconds, and, obviously, a date complication. The rotor and bridges are exquisitely finished with Geneva waves in arabesque and Omega’s signature balance bridge combined with silicon hairspring and balance wheel improves reliability.
The Petite Seconde Collection
The design of the case is well-executed, especially when we consider this profile conceals an automatic movement. The overall “Manhatten” design (a name now absent from the family) has become synonymous with Omega’s Constellation collection. It is a great, modern example of what is now a very mature range. The retail price for this two-tone beauty is €10,900. For more information about the entire collection visit the Omega website.
