For the past several years, high-quality watches have been competing with designer handbags as a woman’s must-have luxury accessory. This winter, watches may well win the contest. Offering all the beauty of the finest piece of jewelry, a luxury watch enhances women’s style in ways that a designer handbag simply cannot. An accessory that complements both formal and casual attire, a luxury watch is more than a status symbol; It’s a style statement that reflects a woman’s personal taste. While this winter’s strongest watch trends focus on a warmer color palette than past seasons, the best of them still offer truly ice-cold style.
The Omega Constellation Luxury Edition with Diamonds encapsulates the snowy charm of winter and the glow of holiday candlelight in this special collection of ladies watches.

The effect instantly conjures up images of powder-soft snow swirling in the wind. Rose gold adds warmth to the design and makes this elegant watch a perfect match for a variety of fashions. It’s the ideal accessory for fashionable outdoor winter wear on snowy days. The watch also adds importance and sophistication to formal wear and is particularly stunning when worn with a white evening gown. The Omega watch features hundreds of beautifully cut round diamonds, including a double row of diamonds on the bezel.
