 The Constellation Sedna features a brand new alloy, Sedna™ gold. The new allow mastermind by the experts at OMEGA stunningly blends three elements: gold, copper and palladium. Sedna™’s unique rose color is a result, in part, of just the right proportion of copper: Its palladium content helps to ensure that the reddish hue of Sedna™ gold will be particularly long lasting. The OMEGA Constellation Sedna will be produced in a limited edition of 1,952 pieces, signifying the year OMEGA debuted the renowned Constellation watch family.

It takes its name from a trans-Neptunian object which astronomers called Sedna – the same name as an Inuit goddess who is said to live at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. The surface of the orbiting object has been described as one of the reddest in our Solar System.

Swatch Group assembled a team of top metallurgists and scientists from several of its companies with the shared goal of creating an 18K rose gold alloy whose color would be not only beautiful but enduring. Sedna™ gold – developed 100% in house by the Swatch Group team – is the patented, breath-taking confirmation of their success.
