Omega’s newly-redesigned Constellation line’s Constellation Baguette has been created with a strong and vivid visual identity – its dial displays a dramatic supernova structure which emanates boldly from the diamond Constellation star on its mother-of-pearl background at 6 o’clock. The one-of-a-kind masterpiece glistens with 459 Top Wesselton diamonds totalling just over 30 carats. The “invisible” mounting of the 146 baguette and trapeze diamonds on the dial means hides the traces of 18 Ct white gold used in the creation of its case. The Omega co-axial calibre 8421 escapement reduces the amount of sliding friction in the watch, virtually eliminating the need for lubrication, which means longer service intervals and greater precision over time. The Si 14 silicon balance spring adds resistance to shock and the effects of external disturbances.

This one-of-a-kind horological masterpiece’s 459 diamonds has been cut specifically for the watch. As a result, if one of the stones needs to be replaced or exchanged, the process can take longer than it would for a series-production watch. Any new diamond will have to be custom-prepared so that it matches the colour, clarity, cut and carat size of the stones around it. In short no standard replacement parts can be kept in stock – each one would have to be specially created for this extraordinary timepiece. It’s also unique because it’s limited to just one piece.

Price Rs 3.15 crore.
