In horology, the Constellation is synonymous with art of luxurious precision in its most refined form: a high-performance movement combined with the perfection of an elegant and refined exterior. On the dial: the name Constellation highlighted by an applied gold star. On the case back: the famous medallion featuring an observatory crowned by a constellation of eight stars, evoking the numeros exploits of Omega in world chronometer competition, among which are the famous world precision records set in 1933 and 1936.The constellation stands for proud, luxury and prestige.
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.

This amazing vintage Omega Constellation Automatic Chronometer Pie-pan has a caliber 564, twelve-sided silvered dial, polished, facetted, and riveted silver hour markers with a black line, silver date window, Dauphine hands, centre seconds and screwed case back. All in lovely condition.
The crystal is original with the Omega symbol stamped in centre. It has a small crack at the side. Because of the orignal crystal we have decided to let it be since we feel that it does not interfere.
The dial is in a very good condition but got some small changes due to age (and angle). The case got signs of wear and caseback got some small scratches from being opened. Overall, this is a lovely 168.005 - there can't be many out there in this condition.
The red Omega box is in a very good condition. The paper box, that you don't see often, have some damage on the top side but what more to ask for when it comes to paperboxes from 1968?
The BoR is a no name bracelet that fits the watch perfect. Both BoR bracelet and leather strap from Hirsch is included.
