*MINT* Omega Constellation Pie-Pan Deluxe | Ref. 168005/6 | 18Kt Gold | 'Dog Leg' Lugs | With Box

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 caseback, 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 particular example is at the top of what Omega had to offer back then, and a few details must be mentioned: the pie-pan-shaped dial is among the most coveted features by seasoned collectors, the dial and hands are made of solid gold with black onyx applied on the indexes (very rare), this example is of the non-lume variety that makes it even more special, and last but not least is that the case on this Constellation features the "dog-leg" lugs that collectors are always after and make the watch all that much more special.

CONDITION

This watch is in overall great condition, the case seems unpolished and sharp on the edges, there are very small and few hairlines on the case sides probably made by sitting on a box for decades, The Observatory caseback emblem is as sharp as it gets. there are minor marks on the back of the lugs probably made when changing straps. 
The watch keeps good time and is in running condition.
