About this watch
This Omega Constellation 1962 is a true classic. Understated and elegant featuring the crosshair dial with steel hands and baton markers. Excellently complemented by the stainless steel case. On the reverse is found the famous logo depicting the Geneva Observatory. The reference number 168.005 indicate that this is a self-winding gentleman’s chronometer.
Measuring 35mm in diameter, it has a signed crown and houses the original 24 jewels calibre 561 automatic movement with its 19,800 bph (5.5 beats per second) and sweeping second hand. The movement is kept safe by the Incabloc shock protection system. Omega beads of rice bracelets.
We have carried out a full service and regulated the movement.
A little history:
The Omega Constellation was first introduced in 1952. The symbol of the Constellation range was (and still is) the Dome of the Geneva Observatory surrounded by eight stars where Omega swept the board and broke the record for precision in every category.
Original, Stamped. Stainless Steel
