The history of the Omega Constellation begins in 1948, the year of Omega’s 100th anniversary. To celebrate, they created a watch called the Century in a limited edition of 6000 pieces. This watch became the inspiration for the Constellation collection, which made its debut in 1952. The models were once the flagship of the Omega brand. Today, they continue to be characterized as a perfect marriage of form and function.
OMEGA created the Constellation in 1952, focusing its image on luxury, a quality for which the model is still known today. Each watch displays an observatory symbol to represent its status as an Observatory-certified chronometer. Until the late 1960's, the dial was shaped like an upside down pie-pan, which coined its nickname. This dial was actually named the 'douze pans' (twelve facets) and had a water resistant case available in snap and screw back. Constellation chronometers in the 300, 500, 700, and 1000 series were created in-house by OMEGA until the Swatch Group acquired the company. These movements are highly prized for their craftsmanship, making those watches very collectible. Collectors generally look for Constellations created in the 50's and 70's, but OMEGA is still producing beautiful updated versions today.
