It is not too late to get to the topic. A new name ‘globemaster’ appeared in the Omega camp in 2015. In modern Omega watches, Omega is the four major kings of constellation, hippocampus, super tyrant and disc flying. All watches are named after these four series. Where did this new Omega watch named ‘Zunba’ come from?
Omega Constellation Watch
The origin of Zunba
Omega called this brand-new watch a constellation Zunba. Although Zunba does not have the word constellation on its disk, from the small star at 6 o’clock on the watch’s disk and the iconic gossip on the antique constellation, Can clearly see the connection between Zunba and the constellation. In fact, Zunba is a constellation. In the 1950s, the Omega constellation encountered a problem when it entered the United States. The name Omega constellation has been taken. Omega cannot use the name constellation. In the United States, Lockheed Martin has used this name to name the famous military and civilian constellation of military and civil aircraft during World War II. Negotiations between Omega and Lockheed Martin resulted in Omega still not being able to use the name constellation. Therefore, Omega can only be forced to rename the constellation constellation to globalmaster, which is now the Zunba to enter the United States. Such problems are actually very common. For example, the biochemical crisis has two names. The biochemical crisis was called biohazard in Asia. When the biochemical crisis entered the United States, there was an American band called biohazard. When the copyright issue could not be negotiated, it was renamed in Europe and America ResidentEvil. Omega changed the constellation at 6 o’clock on the constellation disk to globemaster, and there was only one word, globemaster, without stars. Compared to the standard version of the Omega antique constellation, antique Zunba is not so common, especially in China. But when we search abroad, we can find this omega.

How the constellation became Zunba
After being exhibited at Baselworld in 2015, Zunba immediately caused a sensation. This watch and Patek Philippe’s 5524 instantly became a hot topic at the time (both because the appearance is similar to other brands of watches). The main controversy of the Omega Zunba focuses on appearance, and furthermore, the bezel. Many watch enthusiasts believe that Zumba’s bezel is very omega. The reason is that because the dog ring of Rolex is so deeply rooted in people’s hearts, it has become a symbol of Rolex completely. Omega Zunba also uses a pitted bezel, which makes many people feel that this is a Rolex. This is not the case. Now that we all know clearly that Zumba and the constellation are actually a watch, we can easily find the source of all the iconic features on Zumba from the antique Omega constellation, so as to prove that Zumba is the purest Omega .
The abalone shell and dog ring sign in the 1970s.
Omega Constellation has undergone many changes in history. The number of them and the differences are surprising. The round case, TV WATCH, and watch head and bracelet are all in one. In the 1960s and 1970s, abalone shells became popular in the watch industry. Omega soon turned into abalone shells. Among them, there was a constellation using abalone shells, pitted bezels or dog rings. Obviously, dog braces are not patented by Rolex. In fact, the shell shape we are seeing now mainly draws on the actual abalone shell dog ring constellation from the 1960s and 1970s, but only the big abalone shell at that time was modified into a small abalone shell. We can also see that the omega dog ring and the Rolex dog ring are different, and the omega dog teeth are more fine-grained.
Omega’s iconic gossip, fly, horns
Another hallmark of Zunba is the gossip. The gossip surface is the name given to Omega by domestic watch enthusiasts. This polygonal disc surface is officially called ‘pie plate’ by Omega (because it looks like a pie, but the gossip surface is more in line with Chinese perception). The gossip surface is the iconic disc surface of the constellation in the 1960s. At that time, some constellations also combined the ‘fly’ (a diamond-like time scale) and horns (a watch with folded corners) on the gossip surface. Ear), has created a generation of classic, fly-character gossip-faced horns ear constellation. Omega has transplanted Omega’s most classic historical design gossip noodles for modern Zunba, using luminous bar-shaped time scales, and the gossip surface plus spikes is also one of the standard features of antique constellations. Now we should not have any disputes about Zumba. All the facts point to one thing. Zumba is the masterpiece of Omega in the past 60 years. A collection of all the best of Omega’s 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and modern times.

Zumba, Constellation and DAY DATE
Watches do have a class. First of all, I want to let everyone know that the top watch of Omega is the constellation. Even though the Seahorse and Speedmaster are equally well-known, the price and constellation of many models are not much different, but just like DAY DATE is the pinnacle of Rolex, the constellation occupies the highest peak among all Omega watches, and it benchmarks with the Rolex DD. The constellation you see now is not exactly the same as the constellation in history. The constellation used to have a series called GRAND LUXE. The gold head gold chain is very luxurious, and now we usually see steel shells or gold bars with gold bars. of. Now that we have the constellation, why do we need to dominate it? Because like the blue balloon and J12 watches, the constellation is not absolutely biased towards men’s watches. The appearance of Zunba completely solved this problem. The Zunba three-pin model is 39 mm, and the calendar model is 41 mm. There is no small size at all. The entire watch does not have a bit of ladylike flavor. Recently, I often see people selling 35mm constellations. In order to sell better, they advertise 35mm constellations as men’s watches, but in the current trend, how many men dare to buy 35mm watches? In addition, don’t forget that Zunba is born from the antique constellation and is the highest positioning watch of Omega. Between constellations and Zunba, Zunba may be a better choice, and constellations can be left to your wife.
The various configurations of the Omega Constellation Zunba, from full gold to medium gold to steel shells, are very comprehensive.
As the top models of the two watch factories, Omega Zunba’s biggest advantage over Rolex DAY DATE is the steel case model. Rolex DD line K gold, platinum, gold chain models starting at more than 200,000 yuan, even if the price of 36 mm belt also costs 170,000 yuan. Omega Zunba has a steel shell model, the price is only 50,000 yuan, and Omega Zunba configuration is very comprehensive, steel shell, gold, all gold, which DD can not provide. In the past, when people chose Omega, the hippocampus aqua terra won the favor of many people because of its excellent cost performance. Now, if you want to further demonstrate your extraordinary identity and character, Zunba is the best choice. Because no modern Omega has a higher status than Zumba.
