Over the years, Omega has done some strange things and has lost any direction creating their collection. By now, we can’t see the wood for the trees anymore but one thing is certain: this Constellation Deluxe Calendar is definitely one of the most sophisticated watches Omega has ever created.This Constellation, which dates back to 1966, is made out of 18k yellow gold and comes with its original 18k yellow-gold ‘Milanese’ mesh bracelet, which fits perfectly between the razor sharp and beautiful fancy lugs. This reference 168.005 has a case size of 34 millimeter excluding the octagonal crown and runs on the chronometer caliber 564.Underneath the plexy, we see the highly sought-after ‘Pie-Pan’ dial including the black inlayed handset and baton markers. Like all its gold brothers, this piece features the hand-engraved ‘Observatory of Geneva’ case back with its eight stars. These stars stand for all accomplishments of Omega in the World Chronometer Competition.Cherry on top, this precious piece also comes with its original box and papers.
Omega ConstellationThe Constellation family was launched in 1952 and contains a wide range of models; all luxurious precision watches with a high level of finishing and refinement, both on the outside as on the inside.‘Constellation’ is an astronomical term for a group of stars that moves consistent and predictable just like the movements in the watches of this line. The connection with astronomy can also be found in the logo for the Constellation; 8 stars (representing its greatest chronometric achievements) and the Geneva Observatory (where Omega broke the record for precision in every category). This logo can often be found on the case back or a single star can be found on the dial.
