Omega Constellation Ref. 2782 SC 14k Full set
Here we have a dazzling Omega Constellation in 14k yellow gold, in absolutely stunning condition.
Condition is everything in vintage watches. Especially in softer gold cases, most watches you will come across have lost a lot of their original shape and sharpness due to wear and polishing. This Constellation is different. It has seen only such mild polishing, that even the 585 gold hallmark on the upper left lug is still razor-sharp.
And then we come to the dial. This two-tone pie-pan dial has patinated in an extremely uniform and attractive manner. The centre of the dial has darkened to an almost taupe-like tone. The outer section is more dark gold in colour. It provides this Constellation with a sense of depth that is often lacking in even, lighter gold dials.
The original dial printing is still in perfect condition. The text and rare cross-hair striping are stark black and a bit raised, almost gel-like in texture.
This 1953 Constellation Ref. 2782SC is fitted with a “bumper automatic” caliber 354. You might feel a subtle yet solid thump on the wrist, whenever the bumper hits one of its stops.
The watch is extremely attractive on its own, but the original box and papers only add to the desirability of this early fifties Chronometer.
