The quartz crisis broke the confidence of Omega, so what the watchmakers could do was to adapt to the trend. At that time, Constellation was released from its formal watch and became something completely different. Omega began to try the new design, including the one piece bracelet and rectangular case.
The automatic fake Omega Constellation Ref.168.0044 has been arranged at the end of the catalog and of course the new cheap quartz watches were arranged at the beginning. However, in 1970s, Constellation became the world’s most accurate wristwatch.
The other big change of Constellation happened in 1982 – Omega released the new Manhattan timepiece and many elements of the Constellation had been maintained and still adopted on the contemporary Constellation, which are the integrated bracelet, Roman numerous at bezel and claws at the side of the case. The initial Manhattan was equipped with the quartz movement such as the gold bracelet copy Omega on the picture, and later it had been equipped with the automatic movement.
