More about Omega:
Omega celebrated its 100th Anniversary with the introduction of the "Centenary", a wristwatch which was one of the earliest model marketed as a Limited Edition. The watch was well received by the public and was rapidly sold. To follow up on the success of the Centenary, Omega introduced a watch with similar design elements.
The Constellation was introduced in 1952, the name was taken from Astronomy but also from the popular civilian aircraft of the early 1950s. The model was introduced in Steel, rose and yellow gold with different level of finishing and was the top end of Omega watches.
Reference 2700 marks the first appearance of the famed “Pie Pan” dial. Distinguished by its contrasting polished and brushed finishes, inclined rim and dodecahedral center, the “Pie Pan” is considered among the most iconic dials of the period.
