A father plays many roles throughout his lifetime – from motivator and teacher, to handyman and driving instructor. For such a versatile guy, we believe that a diverse choice of timepiece is essential.
This Father’s Day, we’ve chosen two different watches for two different sides of your Dad. The OMEGA Constellation is built for the business leader, combining a confident and classic design with an array of cutting- edge materials. It’s a watch that truly feels at home in the boardroom.
Beyond the 9 to 5, every man needs time for enjoyment. The original Seamaster 300 arrived in 1957 as OMEGA’s first professional divers’ watch. Today, the vintage-inspired timepiece still carries that ocean spirit, but has been updated for any weekend adventure that a Dad might desire.

In the world of gents’ watches, the Constellation is OMEGA’s enduring symbol of precision and sophistication. This 41 mm model, presented on a black leather strap, offers all of the iconic details that the collection is known for, including an 18K yellow gold case with half-moon facets at the top and bottom, and four refined claws gripping to the sides.
On the black ceramic bezel, the Roman numerals are crafted with Ceragold™ technology – OMEGA’s exclusive method for seamlessly blending 18K gold with
ceramic. Further quality can be found on the sun-brushed black dial, where OMEGA has included slender hands, a single Constellation star in gold, and 11 indexes inspired by the Manhattan skyline – in particular, the angular facets of the Freedom Tower.
Inside, the timepiece is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8901. Its luxury finish and exquisite standard of performance and magnetic resistance can be viewed through the caseback’s scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
THE SEAMASTER 300
This 41 mm watch is for fathers who love vintage design. Like a classic car or a retro tuxedo, it pays homage to a time gone by, when functionality and beauty worked hand in hand.
To continue the story of this legendary divers’ watch, OMEGA has gone back to its 1950’s origins. Details like the lollipop hand and open Arabic numerals are a nod to history, while new updates, such as the oxalic anodized-treated aluminium bezel give the timepiece a modern injection. Furthermore, a new
engine has been added. The OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912 offers peak-performance and ensures this heritage model is run by the most advanced mechanics.
The watch is built in stainless steel with a blue sandwich dial and recessed hour markers in “vintage” Super-LumiNova. Its sleek look is enhanced by an ergonomic bracelet, which comes with an extendable foldover rack-and- pusher, should the wearer ever need to fit it over a wetsuit!
