Everyone who knows a bit about Omega replica watches is familiar with the Constellation collection. Today, perhaps, it is associated with the design characteristics of four “gold claws” and bi-coloured bracelets, but it was Omega replica’s flaghsip collection during the 1950’s and 1960’s. I’ve actually have said it before, but the Constellation is the omega fake watches that started my interest in omega fake watches a long time ago. In my family there are a couple of these vintage Constellations and I inherited one from my grandfather, who bought it in 1969 and wore it for the next 42 years: every single day.
The Omega replica Constellations, especially the vintage models, have become quite collectible, despite their small size. It is a perfect omega fake watches to start a (vintage) collection as you can buy them below $1000 USD in good condition. The solid gold models are a bit more sought-after and, thus, more expensive. Furthermore, the cream of the crop Constellations are those Grand Luxe models with Reinhor brick bracelet. We did an in-depth article on the vintage Omega replica Constellation a while ago; make sure to give it a read.
The man in charge of designing the Omega replica Centenary and Omega replica Seamaster, both in 1948, was René Bannwart. He was head of the “creation” department at Omega replica in Biel through 1955. After this, at age 40, he decided it was time to take the next step and started his own brand, Corum.
While the Constellation and Seamaster collections have a huge following amongst omega fake watches collectors and enthusiasts, there exists little information on the Omega replica Centenary omega fake watches. A few owners shared images of theirOmega replica Centenary on various forums (like this one), and despite getting a lot of “Oooohs” and “Aaaahs” the collecting community remains largely silent on these omega fake watches.
First of all, the Omega replica Centenary is a beautifully designed omega fake watches. It has those typical Omega replica lyre lugs and come in solid gold only. The gold dials are in two-tone and have beautifully chosen diamond-shaped hour markers except for the Arabic ’12’ and ‘6’. A small sub-dial is located at 6 o’clock for the seconds. The gold applied Omega replica logo and ‘OOmega replica Automatic Chronometre’ are proudly shown on the dial and there’s no mention of the model name ‘Centenary’. How different are these from today’s dress omega fake watches, that seem to have way too much text on the dial? Just like the later Constellation models, the Centenary also has Dauphin hour and minute hands. A small flat Omega replica signed crown finishes the elegant designed Centenary.
The Omega replica Centenary was produced in a limited quantity, far fewer than the total number of later Constellation models. True, the Constellation offers more choice and their 50x, 55x and 56x movements are considered some of the best that Omega replica ever made prior to the current in-house movements. However, a gold Omega replica Centenary is a great value proposition as it can be found for less money than similar era solid gold Constellation models. Just make sure to stay away from over-polished Centenary cases and poor redials that are often for sale.
