Omega. Past and present

Omega watches have a rich history of precision and craftsmanship dating back to 1848. Founded by Louis Brandt, Omega quickly established itself as a leader in the world of horology. The introduction of the Seamaster in 1948 marked a new era for the brand, while the launch of the Constellation in the 1950s cemented Omega's reputation as a maker of luxury watches.

But perhaps the most iconic moment in Omega's history came in 1969, when the Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the moon, cementing its association with space exploration and technology. Today, Omega remains one of the most prestigious watch brands in the world, known for its timeless style, craftsmanship, and reliability.


From the start, the Omega Constellation has been a collectors’ favourite. From 1952 onwards, the Constellation has stood for the best Omega has to offer. Following the success of the 1948 Centenary model, in 1952 Omega introduced the Constellation series to top off their dress watch range. Equipped with prize-winning automatic chronometer movements, renowned for their accuracy and reliability, the Constellation set the standard for the 1950s and 60s. While a five-pointed star could be found on every Constellation’s dial, its case back sported a medallion representing Geneva’s astronomical Observatory. However, the ‘Connie’ would become famous for its stunning facetted ‘Pie Pan’ dial and edgy ‘Spider Lug’ or ‘Dog Leg’ watch case. We specialize in the 1960s and 1970s models; the Pie Pans (168.005 etc.), the C-Shapes (168.017 etc.) and the Integral Line (168.046 etc.).
