1963 Omega Constellation Pie Pan 167.005
A very charming Omega Constellation Pie Pan with silver sunburst dial, and white gold applied hour batons dating from 1963. This was considered a "deluxe" model from Omega, and revolutionary in its design. Made by the great Gerald Genta. These models also came with onyx hour markers, but this design has a cleaner feel. It is also the earlier iteration with three lines of script, adding the "Officially Certified" script to the mix.
The case on this example is as near to unpolished as we have seen with strong dog-legged chamfers and strong caseback medallion.
The uncluttered dial (no date) symmetry, and original buckle and decagonal crown make this a scarce commodity. And the luminous infill on the dial and hands is perfect.
The watch runs and automatic caliber 551 adjusted to 5 positions.
One of the sharpest case and clean dials we have had.
