WHY IS THIS WATCH IMPORTANT
Omega Constellation is an icon on its own, the line has been one of the longest-running watches out there, in the last years the tendency is prone to smaller watches and these pieces are getting more and more attention.
The line was introduced to showcase OMEGA's craftsmanship through a classic design housing high-grade movements. The dial is equipped with a star on the button, as a reference to constellations. And on the case-back, the Observatory Logo is used to remind the Omega’s award-winning movements that were evaluated at the Kew Observatory in 1933 and 1936.
Omega released the first Constellation in 1952, and in 1964 Omega introduced the third evolution of the line, the widely called C-Shape case, the design was directed by the one and only Gérald Genta, yes, the same one who designed the Patek Philippe Nautilus and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
This unique piece was sold in Amsterdam by the jeweler Bernard Schipper N.V in 1969 according to the original Omega Guarantee included.
-This watch was photographed on a 6.9 inch / 175mm wrist.
