About this watch

A distinctive-looking 18ct gold Omega Constellation, which dates to around 1961. This lovely piece has a richly decorated, stylish black dial, featuring applied gold baton hour markers, dauphin hands, gold applied Omega and Constellation logos, and a date aperture at the 3 ‘o’ clock mark. The cupola of the Geneva Observatory can be found on the back of the 34mm case; the eight stars celebrating Omega’s chronometric achievements at the world’s observatories.

Powered by the 24 jewel calibre 561 automatic chronometer movement, this watch has been fully regulated and serviced.

A little history: described in a late 1950s advert as ‘For the man who already has a watch’, the Omega Constellation marque epitomises luxurious precision and a golden era of watchmaking. The marque was launched in 1952 as a new family of automatic chronometer watches. Omega had just reset its own record for precision in 1951, and the eight stars on the Constellation case back celebrate the company’s substantial chronometric achievements at the world’s observatories over the previous two decades – including a clean sweep breaking the record for precision in every category in 1931. Constellations are known affectionately as ‘Connies’ to their loyal fans.
