Omega Constellation Boxes


Original box and papers can add collectability and value to a vintage Omega Constellation. If they are missing, one option is to source a genuine box from the period to house the watch and seek an Omega ‘Extract from Archives’ to establish its provenance.

Sounds simple, but it is a little more complicated than that. To make a ‘definitive’ pronouncement on Omega Constellation boxes of the nineteen-fifties and sixties one would need to have the certitude of a fundamentalist and the courage of a fool. Sadly, I have not yet reached such lofty heights of enlightenment or idiocy, and, so, until I receive a personal revelation or suffer the destruction of a zillion brain cells, we’re going to have to do with some reasonable generalisations about ‘correct’ boxes shown here.

  2. Thanks for your kind comments.

    Others have suggested that I compile the major essays into a book and maybe one day Roger when I have the leisure.
