The all-gold Omega Constellation Chronometer Mens Watch 1102 10 00


When I think about the 1970’s I think, bright floral prints, disco balls, and how popular gold jewelry was.  As the decades past and we came into the new millennium metals tones of silver, titanium and stainless steel became popular. Yet as bell bottoms have made a come back perhaps all-gold jewelry will swing back into fashion as well. Feel like getting ahead of the fashion thinkers and re-introducing a trend dying for a come back? Then keep reading for a review on the Omega Constellation Chronometer Men’s Watch 1102.10.00!

This watch commits to its gold appearance. The whole thing looks as if it were made out of solid gold minus the black roman numerals on the bezel. The case material is made of yellow gold and is 1.5 inches think. The bezel is 18k Yellow Gold with black roman numerals. The bracelet is also 18k gold, is 7 inches long, and is adjustable. The dial color is Champagne with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal over it. The movement of the watch is a self-winding automatic chronometer (quartz).  The caliber of the watch is Omega 1120. It is Swiss made, has a water resistance of 50 meters, and has a power reserve of 44 hours. The functions include: Hours, minutes, center seconds, and date.

Pros: Omega has the reputation of being the first watch on the moon and the preferred choice of James Bond.

Cons: Depreciation? Either there are a lot of fakes out there proclaiming to be legit, or these watches really aren’t as valuable as they used to be. Many websites say they retail for several thousand, but they are selling them for only a couple of hundred.

There seems to be some confusion about what the case and bracelet are really made of. Some websites say solid 18k gold, others say stainless steel, and one even said both.

This watch is not suitable for swimming or diving. Showering with it on should be alright though.

Bottom line: there is just something sketchy about this watch. Not only can online sources not figure out how much the watch is really worth, but there are fakes all over the place. If you are really digging this all gold watch make sure you buy it from an authorized Omega dealer. Besides that, I really have to say that this watch is hideous and looks tacky. It reminds me of something a 70’s themed pimp would wear.
