“Innovative watchmaking is the cornerstone of Omega’s heritage that is inspired by sports timekeeping” this is what is written on Omega website showing that for all its history, it has always been specialized in the production of very reliable and efficient wristwatches. Despite this predilection for the creation of tool-watches, models of absolute elegance have also come out of Omega’s factories and in some cases objects with unique and inimitable design. The model Constelation reference 8354 offered here represents a much more massive and heavy piece compared to the classic Omega production. In the field of watchmaking the ability to get out of the ordinary tracks and to dare often rewards the braves and for this reason the 8354 now enjoys immediate recognition and appreciation from connoisseurs and enthusiasts. Its solid rectangular case with snap on back made of 18k yellow gold still retains its original satin finish as does the armored bracelet also in yellow gold. The durable and thick plexi glass boldly protects a quadripartite dial with a checkerboard color with various shades of brown. The thin gold hands are the only delicate element of the entire watch and together with the words “Omega Automatic” and “Constellation” give the dial a touch of color. The watch is also accompanied by its original certificate.
