1956 Omega Constellation 14k Yellow Gold

Nearly 1,000 lots were auctioned in Geneva this past week, with major auction houses welcoming bidders by phone and online. And for those willing to dig, Antiquorum offered a whopping 535 lots in a single day. The tailwind was evident as buyers unfurled their pent-up demand for real assets at auctions ranging from NFT to automobiles. Next came the opportunity for the art world to demonstrate its auction prowess.
Omega is one of the few brands to cover the breadth and depth of all watchmaking disciplines, with truly iconic models ranging from professional tool watches to black dress watches. In my opinion, vintage replica OMEGA is the most diverse and well-crafted piece overall, and the value these watches offer is incredible.
When you ask someone to think of a classic gold vintage dress watch, I think most people will think of a watch like this gold Omega Constellation. Since 1952, the Constellation collection has been one of the longest-running watch collections with countless variations in case shapes, dial configurations, and bracelet designs. The aesthetic of these Constellation watches is elegant, with a chronometer-certified movement inside and a chronometer logo and star on the dial and case back.
While gold formal replica watches can sometimes feel a bit much, especially if you’re not used to wearing any colored metals, this 14k gold Constellation watch has a lighter pale gold color that makes it less intimidating on the wrist, even with an all-gold band. As an all-gold watch, it has enough weight while being light enough to be comfortable to wear. In addition, this example comes with the much-loved “pie plate” dial and crosshair motif. My favorite part is the clever application of the OMEGA symbol at 12 o’clock, just like the “moon front” supersonic cheap watch. It’s this little detail that makes the overall look stand out.
The matching gold bracelet is also worth highlighting. Often, even when the case and dial are well-proportioned and look gorgeous, the bracelet design is clearly an afterthought. In keeping with OMEGA’s commitment to producing high-quality products, the bracelets here are carefully designed and executed. The beaded style feels smooth, and the links lay perfectly flat on your wrist, creating a wonderful silhouette. That’s when you know a watch has been made by a proper watchmaker; not only does it look great and run accurately, but it also feels comfortable on your wrist.
