The name Constellation was suggested to Adolphe Vallat, Omega’s sales manager, by Bruno Passoni, a sales representative of Carlo De Marchi, Omega’s general agent for Italy.

It's hard to believe that this watch is over 50 years old. The watch is well preserved and in a stunning condition despite the age. The original dial is in very good condition. The case and crystal got some thin, small signs of wear. The crown is the original one but the golden layer have been a bit worn. There is a small sign of opening in the caseback but - the watch really is as nice as it looks in the pictures.
