This is a unique piece for three reasons. It has been named “Pie Pan” Constellation by the shape of its twelve-sided dial and its “broken” faceted lugs, which has made its reputation. Second, it is dressed both in gold and steel, and finally it boasts a double Türler signature, named after the distributor who sold it.
OMEGA CONSTELLATION PIE PAN GOLD/STEEL 165.002
Omega 552 Automatic- Circa 1966
The word “Constellation” appeared on the dials in 1952, placed above a small applied star and offering the piece all its charm. A name that comes from a “divine” revelation of one of the members of the Omega sales team in the early 1950s, Bruno Passoni.
