Omega Globemaster Steel Rose Gold 18.104.22.168.03.001
Omega Constellation 168.005 and 168.009
Well-proportioned and classic in design, they also feature a screw-down caseback with the signature Constellation logo. The raised indices provide better reading of the dial, while the metal and leather staps offer a convenient fit. These pieces would form the hallmarks of the collection down the line: elegance and performance.
Around the 1980s, the Constellation’s design switched to the Neo-Classical styling popular at the time, giving birth to the Constellation Manhattan model, which remains in production today. Its key characteristics are the half-moons and “claws” on both sides of the case, leaving the pie-pan dial and fluted bezel behind.

Available in steel, yellow gold, Sedna gold, platinum, and a bi-metal construction, the Globemaster also has complementing dial colors: slate gray, opaline, blue, and eventually, green and burgundy dial colors were added. For the stainless steel models, the fluted bezels are made of tungsten carbide and feature smooth ridges, giving the watch a contemporary look.
Boasting legibility, the watch’s pencil-style hands and baton indices have metal surrounds and white Super-LumiNova. The caseback also includes a Central Observatory medallion as seen in all Constellation models.

Calibers 8900 and 8901
To acquire a METAS certification, calibers are put through eight tests, aimed to measure their performances in real-world conditions. Regulated to an accuracy of -0 to +5 seconds per day after being exposed to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss, the Calibers 8900/8901 are highly capable movements.
Since then, newer Omega pieces have been submitted to the METAS, but the Globemaster remains the pioneer of this milestone.
