18 carat gold Omega Grand Luxe Constellation watch

The Omega Constellation has long been synonymous with quality with the use of Omega's highest grade chronometer rated movements, and the most desired of all of the Omega Constellation watches are the ones with the infamous "pie-pan" dials, as well as the Grand Luxe versions such as this one here dating from 1962.

Made in solid 18 carat yellow gold, not only is the case in solid gold, but the dial as well. Set with black onyx inlays in the index markers, the dial is known as a "pie-pan" dial, and one in which the edge of the dial is angled down between each index marker. This dial has long been the most sought after of all the dials ever produced by Omega.

The case is known as a broken lug case where the lugs at each end follow the line of the case, then angle up towards the where the band fits. Measuring 34.2mm plus the Omega crown, the case back shows very distinctly the Omega Constellation logo where many are found today with this being worn.

Inside is the beautiful 24 jewelled automatic chronometer rated Omega calibre 561 that has been fully serviced and comes with our twelve month warranty.

So elegant and refined, this is a perfect example of a highly collectable vintage Omega for the discerning collector.

18 carat gold Omega Grand Luxe Constellation watch reference 14.902

Here is a brief edited article taken in part from the Omega Museum's website about the Omega Constellation:

The progenitor of the Constellation line is without doubt the appropriately named "Century". A limited edition self-winding chronometer wristwatch launched in 1948 to celebrate the firm's 100th anniversary. This watch, not intended for series production, was greeted with such enthusiasm that the decision was taken to create a watch with all the same qualities on an industrial scale. It started with the movements, which were all self-winding chronometers that had received the mention of "Especially good results" during testing.
The line would soon develop into a series of watches which were finished to different degrees. The Constellation Deluxe was available in gold with applied gold indexes on the dial. And finally the Constellation Grand Luxe, which was available in gold and platinum with corresponding dial and the so-called "Brick link" bracelet.
The form of the Constellation remained little changed until 1964 when the so-called "C-case" watches were introduced. The name was a reference to the form of the case, which resembled two interlocked Cs. The change would also be incorporated in the first ladies Constellation, launched in 1967.
The 1970s saw the introduction of quartz technology to the wristwatch and this also applied to the Constellation line. Some of the most accurate watches ever produced in series were developed for the Constellation line, including the famous Marine Chronometer which is, to this day, the most accurate autonomous wristwatch and the only watch to be certified as a marine chronometer. However it wasn't a Constellation Marine chronometer that stunned the watchmaking world with a 0 error rating. It was a calibre 1021 self-winding movement destined for a Constellation that held the distinction of achieving absolute perfection when it received its certificate marked "Especially good results", showing a variation of 0.00 after 15 days of testing in five positions and at varying temperatures.
