WHY IS THIS WATCH IMPORTANT
The Omega Constellation is a true icon in the world of watches, renowned for its timeless elegance. In recent years, the trend towards smaller watches has brought these pieces even more into the spotlight.
Introduced to showcase OMEGA's expert craftsmanship, the classic design of the Constellation line features high-grade movements and a dial adorned with a star symbol, reminiscent of the constellations in the night sky. The Observatory Logo on the case-back is a nod to Omega's award-winning movements, which were evaluated at the Kew Observatory in 1933 and 1936.
Omega unveiled the inaugural Constellation model in 1952, and in 1964, the third iteration of the line was introduced - the famous C-Shape case. This design was conceived by none other than the legendary watch designer Gérald Genta, who also created the iconic Patek Philippe Nautilus and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
This example is of the non-lume variety which makes it even more special.
This watch is in great honest condition, the dial is in outstanding shape. The case is thick and in good shape with some normal marks of use. The Observatory emblem in the case back is sharp and seems unpolished.
The watch was just fully serviced and keeps flawless time, almost like new.
The amplitude is 260° Rate -2s/d and Beat Error 0.0ms.
