Vintage 18ct Omega constellation Grand Luxe reference 168.002.
The progenitor of the Constellation line is without doubt the appropriately named â€śCenturyâ€ť, a limited edition self-winding chronometer wristwatch launched in 1948 to celebrate the firmâ€™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 â€śEspecially good resultsâ€ť during testing.
The line would soon develop into a series of watches which were finished to different degrees. The Constellation available in steel or gold, the Constellation Deluxe only 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 â€śBrick linkâ€ť bracelet. The Grand Luxe model was delivered in a solid silver presentation box.
