About this watch
This Omega Constellation 1966 is a true classic. Understated and elegant featuring the champagne dial with gold hands and baton markers. Excellently complemented by the stainless steel case. On the reverse is found the famous logo depicting the Geneva Observatory. The reference number 167.021 indicate that this is a self-winding gentleman’s chronometer.
Measuring 35mm in diameter, it has a signed crown and houses the original 24 jewels calibre 712 automatic movement with its 19,800 bph (5.5 beats per second) and sweeping second hand. The movement is kept safe by the Incabloc shock protection system.
We have carried out a full service and regulated the movement. All is original except for the newly fitted genuine lizard skin strap.
A little history:
The Omega Constellation was first introduced in 1952. The symbol of the Constellation range was (and still is) the Dome of the Geneva Observatory surrounded by eight stars where Omega swept the board and broke the record for precision in every category.
In the same year:
The watch on offer was built in 1966 and, in that same year, at Wembley Stadium, England won the World Cup beating West Germany 4-2. The film ‘My Fellow Americans’ was released in which Jack Lemmon hinted that President Gorbachev of Russia wore an Omega Constellation watch. In France, President Charles De Gaulle pulled out of NATO.
Original, Stamped. Stainless Steel
