A stainless steel Omega Constellation model with an unusual applied baton marker dial. This watch is a departure from the classic Constellation case with the 'dog leg' lugs, with rather shorter straight lugs remaining 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; "CB," La Centrale Boîtes, ”HF" Huguenin Freres and finally 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, 1964, 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 along with the cross hair. On the detailed case back 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, in this case the caliber 561, made for the Constellation line are chronometer-rated, which is printed on the beautiful silver dial. The case overall is strong, there are no signs of polishing, with all of the lines are sharp and crisp. The pie pan dial is in excellent condition throughout.

These all steel case versions watches wear well, wearing large thanks to the large dials, slim cases and longer lugs. This is also a larger sized case than is normally found on these watches.
