See The Beauty In The Details – Manufacturing Of Omega Constellation Manhattan Watch

For more than 100 years, Omega has always upheld the promise of creating professional ladies’ watches. The Constellation Manhattan Watch is the treasure of the brand’s long history of watchmaking. In 1982, Omega released the Constellation Manhattan Watch for the first time, and it quickly became one of the iconic classic ladies’ watches, which was loved by female consumers worldwide.

Omega has been committed to creating women’s watches with excellent quality and delicate design, so that the design style of the Constellation Manhattan Watch is more in line with the diverse lifestyles of contemporary women, which can adapt to the fast-paced working environment and The finishing touch for dinner dresses.

The birth of the new Constellation Manhattan Lady watch not only stems from Omega’s advanced watchmaking technology, but also demonstrates the brand’s exquisite craftsmanship. The upgrade in design details makes this classic watch more feminine.

Zhenzhen Observatory certified precision travel time

In modern daily life, the anti-magnetic properties of the movement become particularly important, because items such as laptops, smartphones, hair dryers, and magnetic clasps for women’s handbags can generate magnetic fields, which affects the precise movement of the watch. The new Constellation Manhattan Lady’s 29mm model is equipped with a small and precise Zenith Observatory movement. Its accuracy, anti-magnetism and overall performance meet the higher standards of the industry.

美 The beauty of the dial details

As the saying goes, the details are really beautiful. Some models of the new Constellation Manhattan Lady’s watch feature a mother-of-pearl dial, and every detail on the dial is carefully crafted. The date window at 6 o’clock makes the dial more balanced. The exquisite and small star logo and the Omega brand logo represent the brand’s unremitting heritage of precision and quality. The diamond hour markers are set in gold brackets, giving a dazzling and glamorous luster.

Shining star emblem

Simplicity has always been the essence of the dial design of the Omega Constellation series. Each new Constellation Manhattan watch has a star emblem on the dial, crafted from Sedna® 18K gold, symbolizing the precision of Omega heritage to this day, and paying tribute to the brand’s early record of accuracy created in the observatory test .

Chic bracelet

The new Constellation Manhattan Lady’s 29mm model adopts a completely new bracelet, inspired by the prototype of the Constellation “Manhattan” watch. Polished decorative bars add a luxurious feel to the watch. The refinement of women’s watches is reflected in the attention to every detail.

Bright Diamond Bezel

米 Omega uses modern watchmaking technology and advanced equipment, but exquisite handicraft is still essential for brand watchmaking. Through professional technology and fine operation, the watchmaker manually inlays each diamond on the bezel of the Constellation Manhattan Watch. Diamond is not only a ‘female favorite’, it is also a craft creation mastered by Omega.
Appreciate the beauty of appearance

In the new Omega factory in Switzerland, the watchmaker carefully checks the craftsmanship of each watch to ensure that every detail of the watch is presented in a flawless manner. Especially for the iconic bezels of the Constellation series, including diamonds, claws and gold bezels, it is even better.

In addition to the watchmaker’s test, the 29mm model also needs to pass the 10-day Zhizheng Observatory test approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). The watches that have been certified by the Astronomical Observatory have reached higher standards in the industry, and their outstanding quality makes every female wearer proud.

Iwc Portuguese Classic Classic

IWC Portugal series (Portugieser) came out in 1939, originally created for two Portuguese wholesalers. For decades, this series has won iconic status with timeless design and rich functions. In this article, we go back and forth to the story of this classic series.

Portuguese Reference IW325 watch, 1954

   However, as a modern icon, before the generation of classics, the Portuguese series was known for its avant-garde design. In that era and aesthetic standards, its huge case and precise movement are refreshing, and the Portuguese series is also one of the earliest IWC watches. Today, the Portuguese series has become a major pillar of IWC. From simple automatic to the highest peak of complex watchmaking, this series has evolved thousands of thousands, which can be described as an assortment.

Portuguese Automatic Watch

   In 1939, two wholesalers from Lisbon, Portugal, Messrs Rodrigues and Antonio Teixera approached the headquarters of Schaffhausen and made a request. They wanted a watch with an accuracy comparable to that of a marine astronomical clock. . They plan to sell this watch to Portuguese merchant ship captains and naval officers, and insist that the watch should be able to be worn on the hand, and the larger the better. This is a daunting challenge because it is very difficult to meet all the conditions until someone comes up with a bold idea-putting the Calibre74 ‘hunting watch’ movement in the watch case. The small second hand of Calibre74 is shown at right angles to the crown and winding stem at 3 o’clock, making it ideal for wearing on the hand. In terms of style, the new watch uses an elegant narrow bezel, orbital minute ring, Arabic numerals, and slender leaf-shaped hands. Despite its simple and classic appearance, the sheer size of ReferenceIW325 is surprising: most watches at that time were only 35mm in diameter, while ReferenceIW325 reached a staggering 41.5mm in diameter.

Portuguese Perpetual Calendar Watch

Classic revival

   IWC produced about 300 watches equipped with Calibre74 movements, which were discontinued in 1951. In addition, between 1944 and 1970, the brand produced more than 300 watches equipped with Calibre98 pocket watch movements. In the 1980s, the Portuguese series almost disappeared, and production also stalled. Until 1993, under the guidance of watchmaker KurtKlaus, IWC launched a limited edition of Jubilee to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the brand, and the Portuguese series returned to the public eye. Except for the 42 mm case diameter, everything from the simple dial to the narrow bezel to the leaf-shaped hands remains intact. At the same time, the Portuguese series also adopted a translucent design for the first time. Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can appreciate the Calibre9828 modern movement improved from Calibre98. This commemorative watch has been warmly welcomed by collectors and connoisseurs, marking the beginning of the integration of Portugal into long-term planning and the development of a complete series of finished products.

Portuguese Series Constant Power Tourbillon Watch ‘150th Anniversary’ Special Edition

Classic complex

   Since 1995, IWC has taken advantage of the large size of the case, integrated different complex functions, and launched a series of new models. In 1995, the Ref. 5240 minute repeater watch and Ref. 3712 chronograph chronograph took the lead. In 2000, an automatic watch with a power reserve of up to seven days brought the Portuguese series into the 21st century. Three years later, KurtKlaus took 18 years of development results, and the famous perpetual calendar came out. In 2004, IWC launched the Ref.5042 Tourbillon Mystère Tourbillon watch. In 2011, after 10 years of close research and development, Sidérale Scafusia finally unveiled the mystery, which is also the most complicated watch manufactured by IWC.

Portuguese Series Chronograph ‘150th Anniversary’ Special Edition

   In 2018, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the brand, IWC added five special commemorative watches to the Portuguese series. The special edition of the 150th anniversary of the constant-power tourbillon watch is the most technically demanding watch in this series. For the first time equipped with a constant-power tourbillon with a simple moon phase profit and loss display, the special edition of the ‘150th Anniversary’ of the perpetual calendar tourbillon watch brings the perpetual calendar with the tourbillon into the dial for the first time. In addition to these limited editions for collectors, the collection is further enriched with a variety of metal, color and feature combinations, and is available in 42mm and 46mm models. The only breakthrough that violates the history is the special edition of the chronograph ‘150th Anniversary’. This watch is 40.9 mm in diameter, which is only 1 mm smaller than the original ReferenceIW325 watch. Regardless of size or function, IWC has proven itself to be a giant and a true classic in watches through its long history of baptism and market test since its inception.
