About this watch
A stunning Omega Constellation Gold Pie Pan, which dates back to 1962. This watch epitomes style, with its pie pan dial ornately decorated with gold hour markers, gold dauphin hands and a gold applied Omega logo and constellation star. Attention to detail which has been carried over to the back of the case, where, specific to the gold constellation model, a hand-engraved observatory of Geneva with eight stars above it – each star signifying an Omega achievement in the world chronometer competition – is featured.
Reference 168004/14, powered by a 24-jewels 561 calibre, this watch has an automatic movement which yields 19,800 beats per hour (5.5 per second), Incabloc shock protection, sweep seconds and an 18 carat gold case that measures 36mm.
In an all-original condition, it comes regulated, and has been paired with a new handmade band, in keeping with the overall aesthetic.
A bit of history:
Once the flagship of the Omega collection the constellation dates back to 1952. The first models had distinctive diamond shaped hour markers, which were seen up until the late 1960s. Constellations of the 1950s through to the 1970s had some of the best movements ever made which were produced in-house by the Omega company. This was before the business was absorbed by what eventually became the Swatch Group. It means that ‘Connies’ (as their loyal fans know them) of this period carry an intrinsic horological value, and are highly collectable – as well as being rather heavenly to wear.
