In order to support ORBIS International and its Flying Eye Hospital, Omega created its wonderful Constellation Star watch in two sizes. Part of proceeds from the sale of these stunning feminine timepieces will benefit the exquisite medical organization that has been delivering high-level eye care to millions of individuals from all around the world.
Both special editions of this glamorous model come in petit sizes. Made of stainless steel, the case of the first Constellation Star has the diameter of 27mm, while the second watch is 24mm wide. A thrilling bezel, set with sparkling diamonds nicely frames the most striking part of the watch, a distinctive sun-brushed, night blue dial, highlighted with 18 karat white gold stars. At the 3 o’clock position, there is a date indicator on the black disk, while central hands come coated with white Super LumiNova for a great readability. A brushed stainless steel bracelet with its characteristic structure, gives the watch a nice aesthetic touch.
The new Omega Constellation Star 27 mm watch is powered by in-house Co-Axial Calibre 8520. Thanks to its exceptional quality, this self-winding movement is certified as the chronometer. It incorporates a Si14 balance spring that brings great resistance to shocks. The brand’s renowned co-axial escapement gives the watch superb accuracy, durability and stability. It is nice to hear that the Swiss watchmaker made this mechanism visible through a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal case-back. Both versions are visually identical, but the smaller version houses a highly accurate Omega Calibre 1376 quartz movement.
As a great admirer of Orbis International and its enormous efforts in order to fight preventable blindness around the world, I have already written about the interesting documentary that presented its amazing Flying Eye Hospital. Omega was also engaged in the project as a co-producer of the film called Through Their Eyes which follows its ambassador, Daniel Craig, during his visit to Flying Eye Hospital in Mongolia. Besides, the Swiss watchmaker launched a special edition of the De Ville Hour Vision Blue timepiece, with the goal to benefit at least one million U.S. dollars from its sale to Orbis International. During the last 30 years, this organization has been taking medical care about more than 18 million individuals from 90 countries. Besides, it has trained more than 300,000 eye care professionals.
