Still, it is an 18K rose gold, implying it has a minimum gold content of 75%. The material’s unique rose tint is partially a result of the right proportion of copper. Palladium is used as a guarantee that the reddish tint of the material will be particularly long lasting.
The name of Sedna gold has been inspired by a trans-Neptunian object called by astronomers Sedna – also the name of an Inuit goddess who is believed to live at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. The surface of the orbiting object is known as one of the reddest in our Solar System.
Swatch Group invited the leading metallurgists and scientists from its companies and united them into a team with the task of creating an 18K rose gold alloy that would boast the tint not only beautiful but also enduring. The Swatch Group team developed Sedna gold independently in-house and patented their invention.
The Omega Constellation Sedna watch was destined to become the first timepiece rendered in 18K Sedna gold. It is important to mention that the indexes and hands are also crafted in 18K Sedna gold, the same as is the clasp on the strap.
The polished case incorporates a brushed bezel featuring tone-in-tone Roman numerals. The new Omega watch demonstrates a one-of-a-kind silvery “pie-pan” dial suggested by the one featured by the very first Constellation model presented in 1952.
The heart of the new Omega watch is the brand’s Co-Axial calibre 8501 with the innovative Si14 silicon balance spring. You can drop a glance at the movement via the sapphire crystal case-back. The novelty is water-resistant down to 100 meters.
The new Omega Constellation Sedna watch is teamed with on a fine brown leather strap. It will be available in a limited edition of 1,952 pieces, hinting at the year the first Omega Constellation watch was introduced.
The timepiece, provided by a full 4-year warranty, is delivered in an exclusive wooden presentation box with a rose-colored lining.
