For a long time, Speedmaster, Hippocampus, Constellation and De Ville are the four series that OMEGA is well known to us. The presence and discussion of Zunba seems to be lower than that of other watches. In fact, Zunba belongs to the Constellation series, which originated from the famous design of the 1952 Constellation series. With a classic design and a Master Chronometer movement, the Zunba is also the world’s first Master Chronometer. As the flagship model of the brand, why is it so low-key?
Omega Constellation was born in 1952, and then in the 1950s, the Constellation series began to be sold in the United States, but in the United States at that time, “Constellation” was registered by other companies, so Omega could not use this name.
In 2015, Omega replica reactivated the name “Zunba” and launched a new Zunba watch, which is still divided into the constellation series. With its elegant design style, it is equipped with Omega’s most advanced Observatory movement, which has also passed the Strictly tested by the Observatory, Zunba has also become Omega’s flagship watch.
It can be seen that the most iconic design of the Zunba series is the gossip design on the disk. The inspiration for this design comes from the 1960s and 1970s. Because the shape resembles a dessert “pie” that is often eaten abroad, it is also called “pie plate”, while it is often called Bagua noodles in China. Judging from the elements of the dial, the Zunba series continues the constellation star logo. This Sedna K gold Zunba is made of Sedna K gold for the case, hands and hour markers. This material is the brand’s patented material. , the color is relatively brighter. The hour markers and hour markers are covered with Super-LumiNova luminous coating, and the time reading function at night is also guaranteed.
There is also a more special design, which is the dog tooth design of the bezel. Omega’s constellation in the 1970s, in addition to abalone shells and double calendars, another major feature of the era is the dog tooth ring. Zunba’s dog tooth ring is actually inspired by the antique constellation in the 1970s, not other modern brands. Omega’s dog teeth are finer and more reflective, giving people a more elegant overall feel, and you can see its production level. replica watches perfect
The watch is paired with a brown leather strap, and the Sedna 18K gold observatory badge is set on the sapphire glass case back, showing a refined and elegant style.
In December 2014, Omega and the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) jointly held a press conference to announce the launch of a new watch certification program. The Zunba watch is the first watch to be tested and certified by the new watch certification process, becoming the world’s first Master Chronometer watch. This procedure not only measures the performance of the watch under everyday wear and tear, but also ensures that the watch and movement can function properly when exposed to a strong magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
The watch is equipped with the Omega 8901 Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement, which uses innovative anti-magnetic technology. Not only the movement, but the Master Chronometer certification also requires the entire watch to undergo an overall anti-magnetic and waterproof test, which is more stringent than the general certification process. There are very few watches that pass this test.
In addition, the Zunba series also has stainless steel models to choose from, but there will be some differences in details such as the configuration of the movement. Some people like Zunba, because it is low-key enough but powerful. Whether it is the identity of the first Master Chronometer watch, or the classic design and brand origin, it deserves to be called the flagship of the brand.
