Omega Constellation De Luxe Ref. 2699SC

Here we have a dazzling Omega Constellation in 18k yellow gold, in absolutely stunning condition.

Condition is everything in vintage watches. Especially in  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 750 gold hallmark on the upper left lug is still there.

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.

This 1962 Constellation Ref. 2799SC 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.

Come and try it at our store, you will be amazed!

When Omega celebrated its centennial in 1948, it launched its first chronometer-rated wrist watch, the Centenary, to commemorate the event. The watch was an instant hit and in 1952, Omega decided it was time to expand its chronometer efforts. The Constellation was born as its top line of officially chronometer-rated watches.

The Constellation would be easily recognizable through a star on the dial and a caseback featuring an image of the Geneva observatory and eight stars. A nod to the accuracy records Omega set at the Kew-Teddington observatory in the 1930’s.

The first models featured bumper-automatics. A variation on the common free-spinning rotor, where the rotation is limited to 120 degrees, before the rotor hits a spring. This can be felt when handling the watch as a little bump. After four years, these calibers were replaced by free-spinning automatics.

The earlier models from the 1950’s and 1960’s featured the iconic pie-pan dial. The dial would slope down at an angle around its outer perimeter, providing a very cool sense of dimensionality. Since the look is reminiscent of the underside of a pie-pan, a nickname was quickly born. Halfway through the sixties, flat-dial versions slowly took over. The pie-pan remains a highly sought-after Constellation variant today.

In the 1970’s, all sorts of creative case shapes and integrated bracelets were launched. Different sizes were introduced for men and women. Countless dial variations were sold. Steel, gold and gold-cap versions can be found.

The Constellation is clearly Omega’s high end range. More effort was put into finishing techniques and accuracy. Where the Seamaster and Speedmaster lines were more about utility, the Constellation was (and still is) a tour-de-force in watchmaking precision.
