The Constellation was released in 1952 and was named in honor of the Constellation jet that flew during World War 2. Available in steel, yellow gold and rose gold as well as three grades of finishing (Standard, Deluxe and Grand Luxe), the Constellation was Omega's flagship watch from the very beginning. Even its case back referenced Omega's commitment to horological excellence; the iconic observatory engraving referenced the location of the chronometer trials and the eight stars in the sky represented the eight chronometric records that Omega broke in 1931.
This model is an example of the Constellation "C-Watch", named on account of the shape of the wide-topped golden case that resembles the letter 'C'. The piece is in excellent condition, with a beautiful colour to the dial and fantastic, clean case.
