Watch: Omega Constellation BD 168.009/017

It was in the earlier years of the 1960s design revolution that Omega launched this first child of the Sixties. Designed by Gerald Genta, the CShaped Constellation was initially released as model 168.009 in December 1964.
The design of the C-Shape Constellation reflected an emerging trend in the early 1960s towards bigger watches with contours that were the antithesis of previous designs: shapes that rejected past notions of style and reflected contemporary ideas on line and function.


Condition:

Watch is in amazing condition with everything original to the watch (bracelet, crown, hands, crystal...)
It's all in solid 14kt yellow gold (585‰) with very few signes of wear. Perhaps one of the best exemple with a incredible state of conservation for a 50 years old watch.
Only defekt is a scratch on caseback (see pictures), it is superficial and can be easily corrected with a simple polish. However I wanted to keep the watch 100% original.
