The Watch

Here we have a beautiful 2017 Omega Constellation Steel & Red Gold MOP/Diamond Dial with a 27mm barrel-shaped case, the elegantly flowing lines of the integrated style bracelet lead to a lug-to-lug length of 33mm and a case thickness of just 8.5mm ensuring a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, is an 18ct Red gold signed crown. The domed 18ct Red-gold bezel has large engraved Roman numerals and design elements that remind us of a porthole on a ship, a domed sapphire crystal AR coated on both sides sits above a stunning wave pattern Mother of Pearl dial that shimmers in the light. The delicate 18ct Red gold framed diamond inset applied indexes mark the hours, and at 6 o’clock a red gold framed date window perfectly balances this jewel-like dial. Elegant 18ct Red gold Dauphins hands are complemented by small seconds at 9 o’clock with four small diamonds, at 12 o’clock we have the Red gold Omega motif “Constellation” underneath and at 6 o’clock "Co-Axial Master- Chronometer" with an applied Red gold star underneath completes this incredible dress watch. On the reverse, the case back has an embossed Observatory and eight stars in the centre, inside a Quartz Omega Cal. 1376. The watch comes paired with its integrated 17.5mm stainless steel and 18ct Red gold bracelet with a signed deployant buckle and comes with its Omega presentation box, swing tag and paperwork.


Personal Note

This Omega Constellation in 27mm featuring steel & red gold with a beautiful mother of pearl and diamond dial is exquisite and punches well above its price tag in my opinion. Worn lightly over the past few years, and benefiting from a fresh battery change, this watch is ready to be worn and enjoyed again. For those wanting it to look brand new first, a quick bracelet and case refurb would do exactly that, so don't hesitate to reach out to enquire about the price and process of that.


The Brand

Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. in 1848, it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When he died in 1879, his sons carried on his dream. In 1880 they moved to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli where they remain today. The brothers produced their first mass-produced calibre, the Labrador In 1885. Just a few years later in 1892, they produced the first minute-repeater. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army. In 1930, Omega and Tissot merged together to form Société Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlogère (SSIH) In 1931, another group was formed - Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG). Where SSIH was primarily French-speaking, ASUAG was founded by the more German-speaking members of the Swiss watch industry. In 1948 they introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster. Omega first introduced the Constellation in 1952. At the time it was Omega's flagship timepiece. The first models had a Cal. 354 bumper movement in them. Later in 1955, Omega introduced the Automatic Cal. 50x, followed in 1959 by the Cal.55x (no date) and 56x (date) versions. Many of the Constellations came with pie-pan dials, diamond indexes, and fancy lug configurations. All the gold Constellations of that time have the Observatory of Geneva's hand engraved on the back. The stainless steel and stainless steel/gold versions had a gold medallion on the back with the Observatory of Geneva. The eight stars above the Observatory stand for the many exploits of Omega in the world Chronometer competition. Celebrating the fact that all Constellations are Chronometer Certified. In 1962, when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first Omega watch to enter space. After rigorous tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice. In 1969 President Nixon famously said it was “too valuable” and turned down the first-ever all-gold Speedmaster Professional Deluxe. As a response to the ever-growing threat of electronic watches to the manufacturers of mechanical watches, Omega and many Swiss brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe formed Centre Electronique Horologer (CEH). Prototypes began to appear in 1967 with their production starting in 1968. Then In 1972, Omega introduced the reference, 198.030, which included the Omega calibre 1250, a ‘tuning-fork electronic movement which was made under licence from Bulova. Later we saw a merger of SSIH and ASUAG into SMH, or Société de Microélectronique et d’Horlogerie. This merger took place in 1983. In 1992, the company acquired Blancpain, and in 1998 it officially rebranded itself from SMH to the Swatch Group. Then, in 1999, they purchased and integrated Breguet into the Swatch Group.
