Omega’s flagship in the 1950s
The Constellation is an elegant watch, especially the vintage versions that perfect replica Omega produced until the 1970s. In fact, following the limited production of the Centenary, the Constellation became UK luxury fake Omega’s flagship model. As such, it can be seen as the Centenary’s serially produced successor. The Constellation stood for elegance and precision.
Since the very first model in 1952 (reference 2648), every AAA replica Omega Constellation has borne a medallion on the case back showing the observatory with eight stars. These eight stars refer to top super clone Omega’s chronometer-competition victories, including the world precision records set in 1933 and 1936 at Kew-Teddington (known today as The King’s Observatory).
The first 1:1 replica Omega Constellation watches came with bumper movements, in particular, calibers 351, 352(RG), and 354. Around 1955/1956, Omega started to use the caliber 5xx series for the Constellation, which were automatic movements with a full rotor. The AAA fake Omega Constellation often had these beautiful triangular, faceted hour markers applied to a pie-pan-shaped dial. However, you will find many dial variations, even if the reference numbers are identical. Aside from the normal Constellations, there was a range of high end copy Omega Constellation De Luxe and Grand Luxe versions with richer dials and gold bracelets.
The cheap fake Omega Constellations were available in stainless steel, gold, platinum, and a combination of gold and steel. The latter ones are also referred to as “gold-capped” and have a steel case with a solid 14K/18K gold shell attached to them. Among others, Gérald Genta was involved in the design of several Omega Constellation replica watches online, including the pie-pan-dial reference 14900 and the later C-shaped-case reference 168.009.
Although the Omega Constellation fake for sale fell victim to the big, clunky designs of the 1970s, I do like some of the resulting models, such as the Constellation Megaquartz from 1972. In the 1980s, Swiss movement replica Omega brought back a more consistent design for the Constellation. The 1982 Manhattan played into the demand for watches with integrated bracelets, thin cases, and quartz movements.
Even the first model (reference 398.0864) had a chronometer-certified quartz movement. Later, these models matured a little bit and eventually lead to the popular high quality replica Omega Constellation ’95 series.
In 2003, Omega fake for sale introduced the “Double Eagle” version of the Constellation, making it bigger and bulkier. With those editions, the Constellation lost a bit of its appeal for me until 2015 when Swiss copy Omega introduced the Constellation Globemaster. The Globemaster has the famous pie-pan dial, and it was the first Omega watch to receive the Master Chronometer certification. The Globemaster line runs alongside Constellation “Manhattan” series, which features integrated bracelets and straps. The wholesale fake Omega Constellation Globemaster isn’t overly popular, it seems, but I love it. The pie-pan dial is a great nod to those early Constellations, and the 39mm size is just perfect for most wrists.
