Omega released the first Constellation in 1952, and it's still a cornerstone of the modern brand. Today's Constellation dates to 1961 and features a few characteristics highly appreciated by seasoned collectors: Pie-Pan dial and Cross-Hair dial are some of the most characteristic aspects of this reference which was only made from 1961 to 62.
This example is of the non-lume variety that makes it even more special, with black onyx applied on the indexes (very rare).
Inside the case-back, we find the mark of CB which indicates that it was made by La Centrale Boîtes of Bien, possibly the finest case maker that used Omega.
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.
This watch is in overall great condition, The case is unpolished and sharp on the edges, The Observatory emblem made of gold is as sharp. there are minor marks on the back of the lugs probably made when changing straps.
The watch was just fully serviced and keeps great time.
