$ 2,350

Since 1952 the Omega Constellation has been regarded as one of the most luxurious and precise watch collections offered by OMEGA. Adding to the impressive nature of the Constellation line, this watch family has always been chronometer-rated.

This particular offering is especially eye-catching, with its original dial showing off an amazing gold-flecked tropical patina, which adds even more when paired with the gold hands, indices and markings, and gold-capped case.

DIAL & HANDS

The original glossy gilt "crosshair" dial has achieved a spectacular tropical patina that features an array of brown and gold speckling. The gold markers and hands accent the dial patina perfectly and preserve the sophisticated aesthetic of the watch.

The original tritium inlaid hour markers have achieved a dark brown patina with minor degradation present when inspected under UV light.
