About this watch
This handsome 18ct gold Omega Constellation dates back to 1967. Beautifully crafted, it has a lovely dial with gold hour markers, gold applied logo and markings, elegant lugs and a 18ct gold case. Engraved on the back of the case is the observatory of Geneva under a starry sky; the eight stars denoting the many achievements of Omega in the world chronometer competition – see under history for more details.
Once the flagship in the Omega collection, this superb watch features the famous 564 caliber quickset date chronometer movement, has the case reference 168.5004 and measures at 36mm in diameter.
Full serviced and regulated, this represents a really solid investment.
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.
