"Since 1952 the Constellation wrist chronometers stand at the very top of the Omega collection when it comes to luxury and prestige. In astronomy a constellation is a group of stars whose movement through the celestial vault is consistent and predictable and reminds us of the movement of a watch. In watchmaking at Omega, Constellation stands for craftsmanship and highest perfection in a watch, for precision and top performance of the movement, for elegant design and superior casings. The name Constellation is emphasised by a small applied gold star on the dial. The medallion on the case back shows an observatory surrounded by eight stars representing Omega’s greatest achievements in chronometer tests such as the famous world records of 1933 and 1936 at Kew-Teddington."
