This Watch

We have here our favourite Omega Constellation - the 14902 Pie Pan.  We rarely see a Constellation in this condition and we love the way the silvered dial slopes off towards the edge of the outer rim, creating the much-loved 'pie pan' effect.  This original dial also has crosshairs, which is another big tick from us!  At 3 o'clock, you have the date window under a cyclops crystal.  Gilt baton markers and gilt Dauphine hour, minute and central seconds hands give the watch an elevated sense of elegance.  The dial is signed 'Omega Automatic Chronometer Officially Certified', with the Omega logo at 12 o'clock and 'Constellation', with the Constellation star at 6 o'clock.  

There are rumours that Gerald Genta designed these Omega Constellation Dog Leg models and we love how angular they are.  They complement the sleek elegance of the Constellation!   The 34.5mm stainless steel, screw-back case is a comfortable wear and the case back has the Geneva Observatory surrounded by eight stars - the official motif of the Constellation.  Inside is the automatic, chronometer tested and officially certified, Omega caliber 561, with slow date change (no push/pull, we're afraid), fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've kept this watch in it's unpolished, original condition and on it's original, stainless steel, flat beads of rice bracelet, it looks great on leather, too!

Extra Points 

Founded by Louis Brandt in 1848, Omega started out as La Generale Watch Co., an unassuming, but international business. It wasn't until 1885, when the company had been taken over by Louis' sons, that the first mass-produced caliber, the Labrador, was released. By 1903, the company had renamed itself Omega and only two years later were they the official timekeepers at many sporting events across Switzerland. Omega stepped onto an international stage in 1932 as the official timekeepers at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the first of over 20 Olympic Games. Omega were one of the 12 companies, now known as the Dirty Dozen, commissioned to produce watches for the British Military during the Second World War. One of Omega's most iconic watches, the Seamaster, was introduced in 1948 to celebrate their 100th anniversary. Over 70 years later, it is still one of Omega's best selling watches. Omega made headlines in 1962 when Wally Schirra wore the Speedmaster as part of NASA's first crewed spaceflight programme, making the Speedmaster the first watch to enter space. It was only a few years before the Speedmaster became the official chronograph for the American space missions and was worn by Buzz Aldrin as well as the Apollo 13 crew. Omega are still involved with NASA and have been instrumental in creating vital pieces of equipment for space exploration. Omega's reputation continued to soar in the 1990s with Omega Seamaster worn by Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. As well as post-1995 James Bonds, Omega has been worn by the likes of Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy, Prince William, Rory McIlroy, Ringo Starr, Michael Phelps, Cindy Crawford and George Clooney.

All Omega Constellations are 'Chronometer Officially Certified' watches, which means that they are tested to the highest possible level.  Omega have called it "the most distinguished-title a watch may carry."  In order to achieve this title, each of the 153 essential components that make up these watches undergo 360-hour accuracy and reliability tests and inspections.

This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.


What we think

We love Omega and we especially love Omega Constellations!  The pinnacle of the Omega range, officially certified.  The perfect watch for him and her and a must have in any watch collection.  If you would prefer, we can polish the watch for you - we have left it unpolished as collectors tend to prefer the sharpness and original condition.  It is rare that we find a Constellation in such a good condition as this and it was definitely very hard not keeping this watch for ourselves!
