Alternatives to this Constellation Sedna?

Edit: alternative meaning similar aesthetic and colors, but for far less money

My brother in law is not a watch guy, but he tried on this Constellation while at a convention in Las Vegas and said it “spoke to him”

The $10k price tag is steep and I’m not convinced that this watch is worth such pricing compared to other offerings in that range. It’s not my taste but then again I’m not the one that tried it on.

Are there any alternatives in the micro brand space that are similar to this model and color scheme?

Thanks in advance!

I think for a non-watch person that is a steep foray into watches. It's definitely awesome and in a precious metal (thus 10k worthy)- but it's very niche and not at all versatile or daily capable (for most people) IMO.

Exactly, that’s why I’m hoping to find a similar alternative that checks the same boxes. He really shouldn’t be considering buying something at that price range lol

He’s a new doctor and I think he’s getting sucked into that culture.

Also as far as I can tell only the Roman numbers and part of the bezel are gold, the body is steel. Idk why this watch is priced this way

I think the stainless steel version is around the $6k range. Maybe that's the way to go for a non-watch version or point him toward the De Ville or Aqua Terra models.

The asking price seems steep compared to other Omegas but it is gorgeous.

There are too many to recommend for 10k. But if you are looking for something half the price, there are also too many to mention. I would suggest to your BIL to do a bit more research and also sleep on it awhile before pulling the trigger.

Maybe have a look at a quartz version? That’s one beautiful watch. I’ve got the all steel version & it’s pretty versatile actually. If he genuinely is drawn to it something else probably will feel very second best. A Christopher Ward might be a good brand to look at but that Omega os unique.

I would get the Omega if he can afford it & something different.

To answer the question, what is it about the watch that spoke to him? Was it the precious metal? The strap type? The colorway? That's the only way we can hone in on the types of appropriate alternatives. Like, I would suggest maybe a globemaster if he likes the constellation, but with a fluted bezel, that might not be the appropriate alternative even if the dials are similar.

Man, I love the Constellation series.

I meant an alternative that fits the same overall aesthetic of this watch, design and colorwise

Maybe a PRX, CW 12, or a precious generation Chronomat. If it’s the Omega, pre owned or previous generations of the constellation
