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 particular piece is a fantastic example of what has given the Pie Pan its place in history. The shimmering dial sits against the gold case, giving a simplistic look that is both iconic and timeless.
