OMEGA presents the special edition Constellation Star

With the introduction of its Constellation Star in two sizes, OMEGA gives customers two opportunities to help ORBIS International give the gift of sight.

OMEGA is proud and honoured to support ORBIS International and its Flying Eye Hospital, which delivers high-level eye care to some of the world’s more remote regions.

With the debut of its exquisite and sophisticated Constellation Star 24mm and 27mm, OMEGA demonstrates its connection to social responsibilities and has made it possible for watch enthusiasts to make their own contribution to ORBIS International and its efforts to fight preventable blindness around the world.

In agreement with the humanitarian organisation, OMEGA has pledged to donate a portion of its proceeds from each Constellation Star to ORBIS International.

The OMEGA Constellation Star 27mm features a distinctive sun-brushed blue dial with applied 18 Ct white gold elements and white Super LumiNova on the hands. Its stainless steel case gleams with a diamond-paved bezel and is attached to a stainless steel bracelet, giving this unique wristwatch a timeless yet bold appearance.

At the heart of this remarkable piece is OMEGA’s exclusive Co-Axial calibre 8520, a self-winding mechanical chronometer movement visible through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback. Equipped with an Si14 balance spring, the Constellation Star 27mm is particularly resistant to external disturbances.

While boasting the same shining appearance as that of its 27mm counterpart, the Constellation Star 24mm is instead powered by OMEGA’s calibre 1376, a quartz movement with incredibly reliable precision.

Providing medical care and education
Since 1982, ORBIS has carried out programs in 90 countries. In addition to the provisions of medical treatment, the organisation has trained more than 300,000 eye care professionals, and more than 18 million individuals have received medical care from ORBIS.
