Omega first began producing the Constellation line in 1952 and it's still a cornerstone of the modern brand. The Constellation was Omega’s answer to what a technically superior dress wristwatch should be.
Today's example dates to 1966 and was given a couple of characteristics that would go on to define the collection. The Iconic "Pie Pan" dial has the Constellation branding on it, of course, as well as an applied star logo. The Case has wonderful crisp "dog leg" lugs and caseback is a depiction of the Geneva Observatory with eight stars that represent the eight observatory chronometer competitions Omega won in the 20th century. As you might expect, this Constellation was a chronometer-rated watch, and it says so proudly on the dial.
Ask any seasoned Omega collector, and they'll vouch for how desirable this particular "dog-leg" and "pie-pan" variant is – we're excited to offer this one.
