Vintage Omega Constellation Replica Watches

The Omega gold replica watches are not your grandfather’s Omega Constellation replica watches, they are modern replica watches by design (39mm case) but also in terms of manufacturing using the latest innovations and standards in the Swiss replica watches industry (Computer Aided Design, use of materials, high-tech production equipment and of course the caliber 8901 movement). You can’t compare these watches based on the product as they are so different, except for some design elements of the original 1950s and 1960s Constellations that you’ll find in the Globemaster replica watches as well. The pie-pan is an obvious one.

The hands are totally different though. No more short dauphin hands but long baton hands, in Sedna gold. The Omega replica watches hour markers are wide stick markers with luminous (Super-LumiNova) material inside.  Both the hands and hour markers are very visible in low-light conditions. The arrow shaped hour markers like the ones on the image above could have been nice as well, but perhaps it would look a little bit tacky today.

About a year ago I did an in-depth story on vintage Omega Constellations replica watches and showed you some models with a proper pie-pan dial. The Omega Globemaster Sedna gold that I had for review definitely reminded me of those. Although these vintage models are breathtaking in my opinion, I am happy that Omega didn’t do an exact copy of these high quality replica watches in terms of case, dial and hands. Longines did something similar not too long ago with their Conquest, and also then I made the remark that someone who fancies the original will probably go after the original and refrain from buying the retro edition.

Omega Replica Watches With Steel Straps

That is a lot of money, period. For me it is always difficult to see why gold replica watches have to be almost three times as expensive as steel Omega replica watches, as the material itself isn’t roughly 11-12K more expensive given the weight of the gold. Steel is also a bit harder than gold, so the wear and tear of CNC tools is also different. So the premium for a gold watch perhaps also lies in the fact that less are made and to keep it more exclusive. But I am dropping some assumptions here.

Prices start at €6400 Euro for stainless steel Omega replica watches with leather straps. The Omega gold replica watches I reviewed have slightly different price tag of course, €18.200 Euro. There are some other models with stainless steel bracelet, bi-color with strap or with bi-color bracelet, in yellow gold and the top of the bill is their limited edition platinum version. The collection ranges from €6400 Euro for the stainless steel versions to €37.300 Euro for the platinum Globemaster.

Case design and bezel are somewhat similar to the Constellation with C-shaped case from the 1960s (and early 1970s), but the thickness and profile shape is totally different. I used to own a C-shaped Constellation (but flipped it quickly again as I didn’t really rely on the f300hz tuning-fork movement it had inside) and various Omega replica watches wore very different on the wrist.
