Luxury watchmaker Omega has unveiled the Constellation Sedna. This unique timepiece will be the first to feature Omega’s brand-new alloy, named Sedna™ gold.
Developed in-house at the Omega Manufacture, this alloy blends gold (min. 75%), copper and palladium to create a unique rose color.
As you can see it possesses nice hues of rose and red, though from these images it is hard to distinguish its uniqueness vs. other rose or pink golds.
According to Omega, it takes its name from a trans-Neptunian object which astronomers called 90377 Sedna, an object which possesses one of the reddest surfaces in the Solar System, at least as far as galactic objects go. Sedna is also the goddess of the sea and marine animals in Inuit mythology.
The case features both polished and brushed elements; indexes and hands are also made of Sedna gold, as is the strap clasp. The dial has the “pie-pan” design which traces its roots back to the very first Constellation from 1952. Inside the watch is the Omega co-axial caliber 8501.
The Omega Constellation Sedna will be produced in a limited edition of 1,952 pieces, signifying the year Omega debuted the renowned Constellation watch family.
