This Watch

This classic Constellation, model 168.005, has a stunning, original, flat dial with elegant baton markers.  This is the model with the date function (the non-date is 167.005), which sits at 3 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 and simple nature of the Constellation.
The chronometer-tested caliber 561 sits in the stainless steel, screw-back case, which features the signature Constellation logo (the Geneva observatory) on the case back.

Fully serviced by our on-site workshop, our watchmakers usually obtain a better amplitude and higher performance than our non-chronometer watches.

Extra Points 

Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.

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.

What we think

This watch comes paired on the original, stainless steel, Beads of Rice bracelet.  We also have the original and unusual Omega Constellation-signed box, which is not only a rare box, but also uncommon for a watch of this era.  This is a perfect addition for a collector and also a great investment for a first time buyer.
