We offer for sale this very rare and highly collectible Omega Constellation Date Certified Chronometer « Pie Pan » wristwatch manufactured in 1963.
The watch is 4 times signed Omega: Case, dial, movement and crown.
The legendary case in stainless steel has never been repolished or rebrushed, so all the angles were preserved, this, with the other following features makes it a highly collectible watch. The facets on the lugs are sharply defined and the bezel is crisp and not rounded.
The very scarce and stunning rare black dial is in original condition and has not been refinished (repainted or redone). An even slight patination of the varnish renders it both butiful and unique. Black dials of this condition are uncommon and will become more so with the passing of time.
The crystal is genuine and has the etched laser symbol, it can't be seen in the enlarged picture.
The watch retains its original decagonal crown.
All parts of this splendid timepiece are original and made by Omega. The watch has just been serviced, all functions operates perfectly and comes with a 1 year warranty.
The genuine handmade leather band is new.
This eye catching and historical model 168.005 with caliber 561, was produced only for a short periond of time, between 1959 and 1965. The Omega Constellation 561 CertifiedChronometer was one of the finest watches of the 1960's and this makes it particularly collectible. It had a power reserve of 50 hours and was the chronometer grade version of the base calibre 550. It was a 24 jewel watch with a four arm ‘gluycdur’ (beryllium) balance, allowing the spring to maintain its strength, shape and anti-magnetic quality. Fine timekeeping was achieved through the micro-regulator.
The 500 series was designed by Marc Colombe under the direction Henri Gerber. The series has proven over time to be one of the most precise and indeed the most celebrated movement series in the history of the Omega company. The success of the series 500 owes much to its tremendous reliability and a number of ingenious improvements, amongst which are the selfwinding mechanism and the mobile balance spring stud holder: the latter an improvement invented by Jacques Ziegler.
