Timepieces commemorating the sport of golf are not new. One name that echoes in every mind on the mention of timepieces celebrating golf is the Omega Constellation Double Eagle series of watches. This year, the popular line has been extended with the introduction of the new 18kt orange gold case model.
Like all of the gold used in OMEGA’s products, orange gold is 18 Ct, meaning that the metal is composed of 75% gold. It has a high copper content (nearly 24%) which contributes to the vivid colour. There is also a trace of platinum which enhances both the hardness of the material and the value of the precious metal.
Powered by the Swiss automatic Omega in-house caliber Co-Axial 389, this timepiece boasts of a black dial with a truncated inverted Clous de Paris motif. The sub-dials stand for the small seconds, a seven-day recorder and 12-hour and 30-minute counters. The hour markers are also fashioned in 18ct orange gold. Besides the hour markers the dial features facetted and truncated Dauphine hands, and the applied Omega symbol and name.
It has a solid gold bezel with black rubber Arabic numerals. The crown and pushers are crafted from brushed orange gold and the Omega logo on the crown is polished.
