  • Catalogue Essay

    An Omega watch in 18k pink gold with diamond-set dial must have been a luxury few could afford at the time, but for a lucky few this watch would have been an expense well worth the cost. The present watch is an exceptional example, in extremely nice condition. This very rare pink hue dial with diamond markers confirmed by the archives and sold October 16, 1962 to Kuwait and is a work of art with star appeal. Collectors today often overlook a timepiece like the Constellation, however, it holds an important place in the history of horology, and once such as the current example is sure to bring joy to any watch enthusiast.

  • Artist Biography

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
