A cumulation of our efforts over the past 4 years, and a testament of our tenacity, we introduce the "Origin". The Origin collection highlights the rediscovery of Constellar’s roots: to create a myriad of well-thought elements that meld into simple, cohesive forms. Playing on colours, shapes and textures, the Origin collection is meant to evoke a sense of “familiarity through the unfamiliar”, and invites the wearer to navigate through its many layers to uncover a world of details.
Constellar Timepieces is a collective proudly based in Singapore, and has been in the small-independent scene for nearly 4 years. We will be launching the Origin collection in Q4 of 2021, a series of dress-watches reminiscent of vintage classics, with modern upgrades and construction.
All Constellar Origin watches will be driven by the venerable Sellita 240-1M.
Sellita Cal. 240-1M, Swiss-made.
Timeless day-date complication.
First independent brand to use the manual wind variant of the Sellita Caliber 240-1.
Unobstructed view of the decorated movement.
Purposefully chosen to build on the romanticism of the relationship between a man and his watch.

The Arctic personifies the breath of winter, reimagining the classic white dial with a multi-faceted geometric motif that embraces light to form an illusionary sparkle reminiscent of glacial caves. The dial features a geometric engraved pattern.
Reminiscent of the mystical waters of the Aegean sea, rumoured to have once been home to the lost city of Atlantis, Aegea features a fumé linen dial that progressively transits from a rich blue to a deep black, channeling the ethereal undertones of the deep unknown.
Inspired by the Teochew “Orh Nee”, a popular Southern Chinese dish made up of steamed sweet yam paste served as desserts at ceremonies to signify a sweet finale, the Yam and its distinct violet tones is our playful rendition of a custom we have grown up with. We have paired this unique colourway with an "icicle" dial featuring a sun-ray pattern with relief.
Matcha ("抹茶") is a culturally and historically significant produce that has been celebrated in the Far East for its flavour since its invention in the 7th century. Its strong hues of green embodies zen and tranquility, invoking a sense of calm and a state of peace. The Matcha also features the Icicle dial.
Sharing the same fumé linen dial as the Aegea, the Bourbon conceals its bold, smokey notes in a honey gold cask. Like any good spirit, the Bourbon is meant to be deeply personal, and develops a fine character with age. The dial is executed in linen texture with a fumé effect. Only 38 pieces to be ever made.
