Omega fabulously create their watches according to the time, so an Omega from the Art Deco period of the 1920's embraces the style of the era, an Omega from the 1950's were more larger, and the 1970's resulted in some truly amazing designs, and when this is combined with Andrew Grima, you end up with an Omega watch that is as much a work of art as it is a watch, as can be seen in this Omega Constellation watch made in 1973. Its full title is the Omega Constellation Jeux d'Or (Gold Games) and has so many incredible aspects about it. To begin with it was designed by the amazing jeweller, Andrew Grima who was approached by Omega to design a collection of 85 jewellery watches in a unique and captivating style. These were titled 'About Time', and the collection included designs that used a gemstone in place of a watch glass, that would allow the wearer to see â€śtime through stone, and instead of having glass protecting the dial, in this case it is a piece of faceted citrine (which is again used as the crown). The way the golden colour of the citrine catches the light as well as it being facetted instead of flat really adds another element to the watch. And all of this is protecting the Omega Sigma dial beneath. At the bottom of this dial, on each side of the word â€śSwiss madeâ€ť, there is the Greek letter, Sigma which can be seen here â€“ Ă“. What this subtle yet important mark designates, is that the hands and index markers are in solid gold. Used by approximately seven watch companies in Switzerland from 1970, it was among its main reason to signify when gold parts were on the dial to subsequently add to both the financial and intrinsic value of a watch. Then there is that incredible bracelet that feels so tactile and smooth and wraps itself around the wrist beautifully. The texture of the bracelet is truly amazing and itself is just as important as the citrine, crown and dial. With such an elegant look to it, the bracelet truly completes the look of this watch so well. With the case measuring 29mm across plus the crown, and the bracelet 19.4cm in length, this was actually designed as a mans watch when it was made in 1973, yet could easily be worn by a woman today and still look so fashionable and elegant. Inside the watch is powered by the just as rare 17 jewelled manual wind Omega calibre 700, which is an ultra-thin movement at an astonishing mere 1.75mm thick! This still remained Omega's thinnest manual wind movement every produced and this has just come back from a complete service and overhaul and comes with our twelve month warranty. And then finally this watch comes with Omega archive papers, stating in part that it was sold in 1973. This same model is featured on page 373 in the brilliant book, "Omega, A journey through time". Every once in a while a vintage watch comes along that is truly exciting and like no other, and this statement certainly applies to this magnificent Omega watch.
