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 Omega’s award-winning movements that were evaluated at the Kew Observatory in 1933 and 1936.
This particular example is at the top of what Omega had to offer back then, and a few details must be mentioned: the Arrow Head markers are among the most coveted features by seasoned collectors, and these markers and hands are made of solid rose gold, this example is of the non-lume variety that makes it even more special.
This watch is in overall great condition, the case is unpolished and sharp on the edges, and there are very small and few hairlines on the case sides probably made when opening and closing the back. The Observatory case-back emblem is as sharp as it gets. there are minor marks on the back of the lugs probably made when changing straps.
The dial has some beautiful patina and very minor aging spots only noticeable at close inspection.
The watch keeps good time and is in running condition.
