Omega Constellation 2652 Gold Bracelet

one of the first Constellations - galvanic dial - unique bracelet

Description
WOW! Where do we start... Looking at this Omega Constellation 2652, no one will remain unimpressed. Black galvanic dial, gold case, COSC movement and of course the resistless gold bracelet.

Omega presented the Constellation in 1952. A special thing about this model line was that all watches were powered exclusively by COSC chronometer movements. This gave the Omega Constellation the reputation of a high-precision wristwatch. On their case backs, the watches bear a distinctive emblem showing an astronomical observatory and eight stars. The latter symbolize two chronometer world records and six first placings achieved by Omega between 1933 and 1952.

The Constellation presented here is probably the most extravagant of them all. The black galvanic dial with its large arrow markers is just fascinating. The golden dauphine hands and gilt dial print also create a spectacular contrast. Based on the early serial number of this watch, it can be assumed that this Constellation is one of the earliest one.

Another super special thing is the finely crafted gold bracelet. To this day, we are not aware of a second specimen. Since this Constellation has a very early serial number, the bracelet may be a prototype. It was probably the forerunner of the well-known Omega brick bracelet that was presented at the end of the 1950s. Overall a unique and spectacular accessory.
