Omega Replica Watches is clearly preparing for the 2013 Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show and has announced three new limited edition models before the show in April this year. The most interesting part of the announcement was the debut of the new gold alloy they called “Sedna.” Their first timepiece announcement was Constellation Sedna, a constellation of women made from this new alloy. The mixture of gold, copper and palladium presents a watch that looks very much like rose gold and exhibits a strong reddish tint. Omega consists of at least 75% gold, claiming that this Swatch inner alloy will better maintain its rose gold tones. It sounds like Omega’s answer to Rolex Everose gold alloy (again). To match the case, Sedna is equipped with Sedna alloy hands, markers and buckles.
Constellation Sedna is 38 mm wide and features a unique alloy casing with an Omega internal coaxial 8501 automatic timer movement. The movement and its Si14 silicon balance spring can be viewed through the back of the sapphire display case. The name Sedna comes from a trans-oceanic object that astronomers describe as the hottest object in our solar system and seems to be the appropriate name for the model within the constellation. Limited edition of 1952 pieces, Sedna limited edition is the year that Omega Replica launched the original constellation. New alloys and case materials seem to be all the rage, so it’s encouraging to see giants like Swatch continue to develop new structural techniques for their watches. Now launch the limited edition Seamaster Planet Oceans!
The lady version, reference 5188.8.131.52.04.001, has a bright white dial and bezel with a white leather strap. The timing is managed by the 8520 coaxial automatic chronograph movement, just like the 46mm version, the water resistance is safe for the 600m dishwasher. Cheap Omega Replica Watches retains red and blue accent colors for the ladies’ Sochi 2014 edition, with red and blue dial markers and bezel indices matching the men’s models. Both versions will be limited to the less limited version in 2014. The absence of dial-up text or graphics to indicate that Sochi 2014 may mean that these models will be able to reach a wider audience, including those who may not be interested in the Olympics.
