Baselworld Preview: New Omega Constellation for Him and New LadyMatic for Her
Written by Mark Bernardo,
Omega introduced its LadyMatic collection of women’s watches with in-house mechanical movements, in 2010. This year, the line expands with the addition of four new dials: shaded gray, blue mother-of-pearl, purple, and pink mother-of-pearl. Like their predecessors, the new LadyMatics are powered by Omega’s automatic Caliber 8520, developed specifically for the brand’s ladies’ models, which has been COSC-certified as a chronometer. The stainless steel cases are 34 mm in diameter with white, black or rose-colored ceramic elements, offered on either a satin-brushed leather strap or polished steel bracelet. The dials have a decorative “SuperNova” pattern and are adorned with 11 diamond-set indices set into faceted white-gold holders. The crowns are highlighted by a “brilliant Omega cut” diamond, and the bezels are either plain, polished stainless steel or bedecked with diamonds in a snow-set pattern. Prices on all the new watches are yet to be determined.
