Notes

One of the flagship lines of Omega at the time, the constellation line embodied excellence and luxury. First launched in 1952 in a wide array of version, the Grand Luxe version presented here dates from 1959 (for a similar version see A journey through Time by Marco Richon, page 365) and has onyx pieces incrusted in the indexes as well as its beautifully made gold Omega bracelet. Amazingly, it has been worn on few occasions showing 2 mint hallmarks on the outer side of the case.
