Enquire about this product

The Omega Constellation is an iconic watch line, renowned for its long history and increasing popularity in recent years. Introduced to highlight OMEGA's craftsmanship, it features a classic design with high-grade movements. The dial has a star emblem referencing constellations, while the case-back displays the Observatory Logo, commemorating Omega’s award-winning movements evaluated at the Kew Observatory in 1933 and 1936

An astronomical observatory emblem has graced every Constellation caseback since the collection's debut in 1952. This motif, showing an observatory cupola surrounded by eight stars, was inspired by the observatory competitions. Contrary to the popular belief that the cupola represents the Geneva observatory, Omega Museum Director Petros Protopapas suggests it is likely a generic depiction. The eight stars symbolize Omega’s significant chronometric achievements at the annual observatory chronometer tests from 1945 to 1952.

This particular model was designed by Gérald Genta, yes, the same one who designed the Patek Philippe Nautilus and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
