This champagne Constellation is an early, non-COSC dial. The dial has very light speckling. The hands and hour are nonluminous with black inlays. The thick gold plating is in great shape with no plate wear. The watch is paired with a handmade Epsom strap.

The Constellation collection, founded in 1948, is a collection of watches that began with the Centenary, a watch designed by René Banwart. The watch was made in limited numbers, with 6,000 made in 1952. The Constellation was named after the emblem on the caseback, which showed an observatory with eight stars above it. The watch was known for its distinctive faceted convex dial, known as a "pie-pan dial." The collection evolved over the 1960s, with models featuring simpler dial designs and a wider variety of case shapes. 

The Constellation also pioneered quartz watch technology, with the first commercially available quartz watch, the Astron, released in 1969. Today the line is still just as diverse, with mechanical chronometers and Master Chronometers. The collection includes a wide range of case materials and combinations, representing the latest chapter in the history of one of the longest-lived and most important wristwatch collections in the history of wristwatches.

This Constellation is a classic. The watch has a beautiful pie-pan dial with a clean date execution at 3 o'clock. The dial feature applied Omega logos and the Constellation star.

Omega, a Swiss watchmaker founded in 1848, has a rich history of innovation and precision. The company's vision was carried on by its sons Louis-Paul and César, who pioneered full watch production under the brand's roof. In 1894, the company unveiled the world's first mass-produced, interchangeable watch movement, the Omega Calibre, which streamlined production and propelled the brand to international fame.

As the 20th century began, Omega watches became at the forefront of timekeeping technology and revolutionized sports watches with their precision. The Olympic Games provided an ideal stage for Omega to demonstrate its exceptional timekeeping abilities. In 1932, Omega began its role as Official Olympic Timekeeper, starting an enduring partnership spanning over 80 years. With each Games, Omega introduced groundbreaking timekeeping innovations, such as the first photo finish camera at the 1948 London Olympics.

Omega's contributions to spaceflight began in 1962 when the Omega Speedmaster became the first watch worn in space on Mercury-Atlas 6. Its defining moment came in 1969 with the Apollo 11 moon landing, where Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the moon wearing his trusty Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. The company played an indispensable role in NASA's pioneering '60s space missions, including the Apollo 13 mission, where the Speedmaster timed the engine burn, ensuring the crew's safe descent to Earth.

Omega's cultural impact extends into pop culture through a long-running cinematic partnership with James Bond Movies. Since 1995's GoldenEye, James Bond has sported Omega watches on the silver screen, wearing the Seamaster Diver 300M and the rugged Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.

Omega remains dedicated to exploring new technological frontiers today, with innovations like the battery-free Pictograms model, wearable tech collaborations, and energy-harnessing movements driving progress and cementing its place in history.

  Curator Thoughts
The Constellation is one of those vintage icons when it comes to affordable luxury. A very unique design with its pie-pan dial and aggressive lugs. The 'pre-Genta' Constellation will always be THE Omega Constellation. A watch that is so clean yet so dressy all at the same time. The champagne dial and gold case makes the watch pop in all the right ways.
