1966 Omega Constellation (Ref. 168.010) Pie-Pan Dial "Rose Gold Cap"
Since 1952 the Omega Constellation has been regarded as one of the most luxurious and precise watch collections offered by OMEGA. In 1958 the calendar was added to the Constellation, an exciting addition to an already beautiful line of timepieces. Adding to the impressive nature of the Constellation line, this watch family has always been chronometer rated. This Constellation would be an excellent classic piece to add to any collection.
This exceptional example of the Omega Constellation is presented in a seldom-seen rose gold capped case and features the highly celebrated "pie-pan" dial configuration. Adding to the specialty of this piece, the top left lug shows a Portuguese importation stamp, a charming detail that gives us some insight into the origins of this unique timepiece.
