Here we have a stunning 1959 Omega Constellation with an 18kt gold 35mm case, chronometer rated automatic movement and solid gold satin finish dial.
This is a personal favourite of mine, it is a near perfect combination of design, functionlity and and style. The case is 35mm (1mm larger than most Seamaster models of the time) and has ornate long curved lugs. These tends to give the feel of a slightly larger watch than it actually is. The case back shows the iconic Geneva Observatory with the stars above (this is detailed and unpolished). It also displays 'Constellation' and some presentation initials. The back of the lugs also display hallmarks.
The dial is satin finish 18kt gold with gilt dauphine hands and a centre seconds hand. The hours markers are gold batons and a semi quickset date with a gold frame sits at 3. The Omega logo, writing and star are applied too with the rest of the writing printed onto the dial.
The snap on case back opens up to reveal the Omega cal 504 chronometer movement. Perhaps one of the reasons Constellations will always be collectable is because of the accuracy you can achieve if well maintained and serviced.
We have fitted an aftermarket brown leather croc grain strap with a gold plated buckle.
This watch uses the Automatic Omega cal 504 chronometer.
This has 24 jewels and 46 hour power reserve.
Frequency of 19,800bph.
This watch is in remarkably good condition. The lume is no longer present on the hands but other than that the dial shows minimal ageing. The case has no obvious scratches, dings or general wear. The movement has been serviced by us so is clean and keeping excellent time.
