1970 Omega Constellation (Ref. 168.029)

$ 1,950

While today the Constellation line is overshadowed by Omega's Speedmaster and Seamaster models, the striking Omega Constellation family was once the flagship in the Omega collection. 

Dating back to 1952, the Omega Constellation has been regarded as one of the most luxurious and precise watch collections offered by the brand. Add to that the fact that they have always been chronometer rated, and you have a watch that is not only stunning in nearly any setting but also incredibly accurate.

This ref 168.029 is an especially beautiful piece to come out of the lineup, with its Gerald Genta-designed C-shaped case, white gold fluted bezel, linen dial, and workhorse 751 movement. It would be an excellent classic piece to add to any collection.
