Essay

The OMEGA Constellation was launched in 1952, after the release of their first limited addition chronometer, for their 100th anniversary. Due to it's popularity, OMEGA unveiled the 'Constellation', featuring a medallion of the Geneva Observatory surrounded by eight stars, representing the brand’s achievements over the past 20 years. 

The first Omega Constellation models were manufactured with bumper automatic movements, pie-pan shaped dials, diamond shaped hour markers and Dauphine shaped hands, which were used until the 1960's. By the late 1960's, the pie-pan dial slowly gave away to more simple & flat dials, including cases in different shapes and sizes.
