..this fabulous Omega Constellation of the first generation (thus with automatic bumper movement). I sold my own caliber 501 Constellation (first ‘regular’ automatic movement model) a while ago, and these pictures make me almost want it back. However, these watches are just a bit too small for my wrists, so it would (and it didn’t) never get any wrist time 🙂
The first Constellation saw life in 1952, and was considered to be Omega’s flagship model for a long, long time. Until recently, the DeVille Co-Axial models took this role from the Constellation line. Personally I would prefer the caliber 55x movement, because of the availability of spare parts. The production of these caliber 55x models was a bit later though, late 50s to the 60s. Anyway, great watch!!
