Omega Constellation Gold/Steel ‘dog-leg’ lugs – 1962

Lovely Omega Constellation from 1962. What makes this piece more interesting in comparison to other Conny’s, is the fact that this particular piece acquired a somewhat ‘lavender’ colour on the silvered dial. In certain light fall the dial will shift to a silver/light purple colour. Seldom seen and a cool characteristic. Scroll down to read more about this watch.




Attractive Omega Constellation from 1962 (1.9m serial range), reference 168.005 in gold / steel.

The story of the Constellation actually begins in 1948. That year, the company celebrated its 100th anniversary – the company that was to become Omega, La Generale Watch Company, was founded in 1848 by Louis Brandt, and became Louis Brandt et Frère-Omega Watch & Co. in 1903. To mark the occasion, Omega produced a watch pragmatically named the Centenary. The Centenary (designed by René Banwart, who also designed the 1948 Seamaster and who would go on to found Corum) was made in limited numbers. According to Omega, 6,000 total were made – all solid gold – and the watch was so successful that Omega decided to create a collection based on it. This was the Constellation, first introduced in 1952.

The gold capped kinked lug case is one of the more coveted case designs within the Constellation production line. Featuring a screw down case back with the famous Geneva Observatory as its logo.

The caliber 561 is clean and runs with fine accuracy.
