1963 Omega Constellation
A stainless steel Omega Constellation model with an unsual applied Explorer style dial. This watch has the classic Constellation case with the 'dog leg' lugs and very clean and sharp geometric detail overall. These cases represent classic Omega styling, and really leaves very little not to like. There were mainly three case makers that made these cases for Omega. This Constellation is made by the third largest Omega casemaker, "SGR," who was entrusted to execute many "dog-leg" Omega cases. They are easy to wear, a great size, and will look as good with jeans and a white t-shirt as they will with a suit and tie.
Omega has a long history and vast product range, and one of the classic watches the company still produces today is the Constellation. First introduced into the line in 1952, it remains a cornerstone of the brand today. This Constellation example dates to the early 1960's and was given a couple of characteristics that would go on to define the collection. The dial has the Constellation branding on it, and you will notice the applied star logo as well. On the detailed caseback is a depiction of the Geneva Observatory with eight stars that represent the eight observatory chronometer competitions Omega won in the 20th century. These high grade automatic movements made for the Constellation line are chronometer-rated, which is printed on the beautiful silver dial. The dial is a non-luminous dial, with the hands having a painted black line through them, but not luminous either. The case overall is excellent and appears to be unpolished. The dial too is super throughout and as prior mentioned, is an unsual configuration for a Constellation with almost an Explorer style layout. There really is very little one could find to not like about these elegant, hard working and versatile watches.
