Design with Distinctive Features

The Constellation Manhattan series, which debuted in 1982, introduced a groundbreaking design with its characteristic “griffes” or claws on the bezel. These features were not just for show; they enhanced water resistance by firmly holding the sapphire crystal.

Crafted from stainless steel and gold, the two-tone bracelet of this model exemplifies Omega’s dedication to luxury and durability.

The bracelet seamlessly integrates with the case, providing a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing look.

A standout element of this timepiece is its intricate honeycomb dial. This detailed design not only enhances readability but also adds a touch of refined elegance. The honeycomb pattern, coupled with the two-tone aesthetic, creates a visually cohesive and striking appearance that is sure to draw admiration.

Reliable Quartz Movement

At the core of this watch is the Omega quartz caliber 1532, celebrated for its precision and dependability. Introduced in the late 20th century, this quartz movement highlighted Omega’s innovative spirit, offering a level of accuracy that surpassed traditional mechanical movements. The caliber 1532 ensures that the Constellation Manhattan is as reliable as it is beautiful.

The 396.1201 model is a prime example of Omega’s ability to merge classic craftsmanship with contemporary technology. The distinctive bezel, honeycomb dial, and two-tone bracelet all contribute to a watch that is both timeless and modern. Whether worn as a statement piece or a dependable daily accessory, this Vintage Omega Constellation Manhattan embodies the rich heritage and enduring allure of the Omega brand.
