Omega Constellation Chronometer

Omega Constellation Chronometer

SKU: VWS-1599

Here is a wonderful, all original Omega Constellation Chronometer from 1963. The silver sunburst dial is in fine condition, with a steel Omega logo and emblem and faceted steel hour markers with black onyx inlay, double at 12 o’clock. There is a scatter of tiny corrosion spots around the dial, which give the dial a warm and pleasant patina. The dauphine hands with the original black contrast are in fine condition, with some corrosion visible on the seconds hand upon close inspection. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the date, which can be semi quick-set by first turning the hands through midnight so the date changes, then immediately turning the hands backwards to 21:00 and then forward through midnight again until the date changes. Repeat as necessary.  


The stainless steel bezel is in very fine condition, with only light overall wear. The stainless steel case with the original crown and the characteristic dog leg lugs is in very fine condition with just a few marks mostly at the lugs. The stainless steel case back has a crisp and clean Geneva observatory medallion and is in fine condition with light overall wear.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, Omega’s high grade 561 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in January 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Constellation is one of the most recognizable and sought after vintage watches, and the dog leg lugs version is perhaps the most loved one. This watch looks great on the wrist and goes well with both formal and informal wear.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
