QUADRELLA MINI HIGH JEWELLERY



Red Gold Version
The Brightest Star in the Constellation​

OMEGA introduces the brightest new star of the Constellation family with the scintillating Quadrella Mini High Jewellery timepiece. Sprinkled with a lavish dose of 1,724 diamonds beautifully displayed in a unique snow setting, the Quadrella sparkles with a light all of its own. This sumptuous and extremely feminine newcomer, with its warm red gold case and mesmerizing 10.18 carats worth of diamonds, radiates the status of its owner whose love of refinement and artistry are encapsulated in this miniature horological jewel.

Measuring a dainty 25.30 x 19.30, this mini marvel displays hallmark features of OMEGA’s classic Constellation family with central claws or “griffes” and its bracelet with horizontal links that blends harmoniously with the case. Introduced in 2004, the Quadrella range joined the high-end Constellation lineage proposing a curvaceous, “tonneau” or barrel-shaped case, reminiscent of Art Deco styling.

Entirely crafted in polished 18-carat red gold, this new star glistens with a blanket of diamonds in an exclusive and unique snow setting. The snow setting plays on variations of diameter to achieve the effect of snowflakes that generously cover the case, the dial and the bracelet. The diamonds have been set with such skill that the surface of the watch is smooth and soft to the touch. Even the characteristic Constellation claws that hug the case, enlarged for the occasion, have a sprinkling of 15 snow set diamond on each claw. No detail has been overlooked and even the diminutive crown is encircled by the precious stone.

Against this diamond-encrusted canvas, OMEGA’s designers have created a sublime dial with wavy patterns evocative of the sun’s rays or the markers of a sundial. To mark the passing hours, Roman numerals, so distinctive of the Constellation range, have been applied in 18-carat red gold at III, VI, IX and XII o’clock although two of the quarter numerals are slightly smaller in size. The remaining hour markers are represented by 8 diamond indices. The dial features elegant 18-carat red gold “feuille” shaped hour and minute hands that have been diamond polished in keeping with the refined standards of this watch.

The 18-carat red gold horizontal link bracelet is embellished with 1,384 snow set diamonds. The joint bars that separate each link and their sleek polished surface create a pleasing visual contrast in this galaxy of twinkling diamonds.

The dial and precision OMEGA Calibre 1376 quartz movement of the Quadrella are protected by a domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Identifying this precious watch, the OMEGA logo and name have been etched on the inside of the sapphire glass.

Like other Quadrella models, the High Jewellery watch has a battery life of 32 months and is water resistant up to 30 metres. True to its Constellation origins, the caseback is engraved with the “Observatory Medallion” that alludes to OMEGA’s ongoing association with astronomy and space discovery and the name of the watch, Quadrella

The workmanship that has gone into making this refined ‘mini’ timepiece is extraordinary and, as befits such a luxurious creation, the Quadrella is available only upon request.

I do like diamonds on a watch... But it can be exaggerated at times :wink:

However this should be considered as a piece of jewelery first... Timekeeping isn't the main reason of its existence, which by all means is fine IMO...

One of the many things I appreciate about my wife is that she has no flash tastes and does not like diamonds.

As Mr Wautersjr rightly says this is jewelry before horology. This can be further determined by the use of a quartz movement.

Nice, and I appreciate the craftmanship, but not my cup of tea Zin.

Take one watch, add a Gangsta Rapper, for this recipe I'm choosing Snoop Dogg, then add in a generous helping of a scorpion.

Voila!

Reminds me of Full Metal Jacket: "....you are so ugly, you could be a modern art masterpiece..." ;)

Way, way, way, to much bling.

It's a piece of jewellery my friend and for ladies who would specially enjoy a creation like that. Bling is not a consideration since jewellery is supposed to be prominent as I'm sure you'll agree.

I suppose we have to remeber this is jewellery first, watch second. I find it hard to read the time on that dial, but then who has ever heard of a punctual woman? They invented "being fashioonably late" :001_smile:

Like the De Ville Co-Axial Central Tourbillon, this one is by special order only. Can't imagine what it costs but it's great yet again to have the opportunity to see what Omega can do.


Y'all have a nice weekend now pals

The Quadrella is an established line within the Ladies Constellation range and stems from the 4 diamond-set claws on the bezel. The Quadrella is also derived from the earlier Quadra range, the name of which again bears reference to the decorative claws which are a hallmark of the Constellation since the Model 95 range of the nineties.

OK pal?
