A Beautiful Vintage Omega Constellation Chronometer in 18k Gold with a Rare White Crosshair Dial, c.1956, Model Ref: 2852/2853

Named after the eight stars emblazoned on its crest, the Constellation was launched by OMEGA in 1952. Because of its high-quality construction and unfaltering precision, the Constellation quickly became known as “the Swiss watch”.

What’s On Offer 

What an absolute stunner! I'm a sucker for a Constellation anyway but when you add a rare crosshair dial and an 18k gold case, it's even more special! This is one of the nicest iterations of the Constellation I have seen recently, and it is in beautiful condition. The white dial boasts applied gold arrowhead, and partial Arabic hour markers, stylish Dauphine hands, and a central seconds hand.

The Omega emblem and Constellation signature sit at 12 and 6 o'clock respectively and the crosshair offers a nice balance to the dial. A simple applied gold star completes the dial which is encapsulated underneath Plexiglas and encased in 18k gold. The case and lugs are both in nice shape, the caseback bears the synonymous observatory emblem with 8 stars and Constellation engravings. There is a very tiny mark on the dial above the Constellation signature - it's nothing we are concerned about but we are always transparent! Also the crown has been replaced at some point over the years. It's a beautiful watch and wears exquisitely on the wrist. Don't miss this elegant and classic dress watch from Omega.
