In the golden year of 1966, a remarkable piece of craftsmanship was born, bearing the reference number 168004/14. The Omega Constellation automatic chronometer, a beacon of luxury and precision, came into existence, showcasing an unpolished charm that has stood the test of time, retaining an excellent condition with only minor signs of use. Crafted with a 3-body 18K yellow gold case, it offers both luxury and durability, a true testament to Omega’s commitment to quality.
The watch gracefully presents itself with dimensions meticulously crafted to perfection; a 36 mm diameter that excludes the crown, a lug-to-lug measurement of 42 mm, and a spacing of 18 mm between the lugs, creating a harmonious balance in its structure. Nestled within this golden encasement is the heart of the watch, the automatic chronometer Caliber 561. This movement, renowned for its precision and reliability, houses 24 jewels that enhance its longevity and accuracy. Operating at a frequency of 19,800 A/h, it promises a smooth and consistent timekeeping experience, with a power reserve that lasts up to 50 hours, allowing for extended use between windings.
As we move to the dial, we find it in an untouched and original state, presenting a beautiful 18k yellow gold-colored face that remains in great condition, a silent witness to the passage of time. It holds the original hands, dial, and the iconic Omega crown, preserving the watch’s authenticity and connecting the present owner to a rich history of craftsmanship. Adding to its vintage charm is the original crystal that has adorned it since its inception.
However, it carries with it a tale of its journey through time, manifested in a bent lug, a minor imperfection that narrates a story of its existence and accounts for the attractive pricing. This 1966 Omega Constellation automatic chronometer is not just a watch; it is a piece of history, a glimpse into a golden era of watchmaking, standing as a testament to Omega’s legacy of harmoniously blending beauty with precision, offering its wearer not just a timepiece, but a story woven in golden threads of time, a constant companion in the journey through moments that mark our lives.
