Omega Constellation Rail Track 18ct Gold 1960
About this watch
A stellar all-original Omega Constellation Automatic chronometer from around 1960. It features stamped original patinated rail track dial, elegantly understated gold batons and hands. Its famous 551 caliber chronometer automatic movement which has been fully serviced and regulated. The 34mm case – 18ct gold – features the cupola of the Geneva Observatory on the back, crowned by eight stars. We’ve fitted a new brown crocodile strap.
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.
