We are often made to believe that wristwatches need to be as highly functional as a smartwatch and appear as complex as one of those multiple-axis tourbillon complications (we bet you don’t even know what the term means). Sure, those consistently serve the pointless pastime of showboating as you’ve got a hard-to-acquire wristwatch that might amount to another’s annual income or be able to fund a small village in the Third World. But the truth is, unless you’re involved in chummy get-togethers with personalities featured on the pages of Forbes’ annual rich list, practicality and prudence still serve as tenets for picking out a piece that is more in tune with the nine-to-five crowd than those with a private jet collection. Co-workers and peers might actually respect you. That’s because you’re spending hardearned money on a wristwatch that is just as down-to-earth as them. It marks time with precision and goes about complementing all the workwear, party dresses, and casual staples in your closet. It’s a no-brainer to pine for a wristwatch that is season-less, arrogance-free, style-friendly, and one that even your granddaughter would want to call her own someday. Sounds like a tall asking? Not really. Take for example Omega’s Constellation, a fuss-free design first launched in 1952 although what we see today picks up from the aesthetics that debuted in 1982. This undeniably classic ladies wristwatch appeals to anyone with a smidge of interest in architecture, design, and art. Clean, strong lines anchor its image from the bi-colour bracelet to the claws on the 27mm case and bezel. The exotic element here comes in the form of the Tahiti mother-of-pearl dial, a gorgeous backdrop that resembles a waterpainting of a waterfall, which means staring at this all day (aside from the company of diamonds that sparkles round-the-clock) is a sight for sore eyes. Omega offers six editions of the Tahiti series in quartz and another three with a self-winding Co-Axial movement. There are no wrong choices here.
