"Omega is proud and honoured to support ORBIS International and its Flying Eye Hospital, which delivers high-level eye care to some of the world's more remote regions," the company said in a statement on Monday.
"With the debut of its exquisite and sophisticated Constellation Star 24mm and 27mm, Omega demonstrates its connection to social responsibilities and has made it possible for watch enthusiasts to make their own contribution to ORBIS International and its efforts to fight preventable blindness around the world," it said.
The Omega Constellation Star 27mm features a distinctive sun-brushed blue dial with applied 18 Ct white gold elements and white Super LumiNova on the hands.
At the heart of this remarkable piece is Omega's exclusive Co-Axial calibre 8520, a self-winding mechanical chronometer movement visible through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback.
Equipped with an Si14 balance spring, the Constellation Star 27mm is particularly resistant to external disturbances.
While boasting the same shining appearance as that of its 27mm counterpart, the Constellation Star 24mm is instead powered by Omega's calibre 1376, a quartz movement with incredibly reliable precision, the company said.
