Omega Constellation Pie Pan

This afternoon, I have traded my Gado Chronograph for a vintage Omega Constellation Pie Pan dial with bracelet in order not to increase the number of watches and to try to keep a tighter vintage Omega collection.
One of the most famous Constellation models are those nicknamed “pie-pan” due to the shapes of their dials. These particular models are highly sought after by watch collectors.. In the 1950s and 1960s, a gold Constellation was as expensive as a gold Rolex Day-Date and considered to be on a similar level. All these Constellations were chronometer certified and were prized as high-precision timekeepers. Constellations came in gold, gold/steel and steel and my latest find is an all steel model with bracelet. These Constellation stand the test of time. A Great 1960’s Vintage Omega Constellation chronometer automatic with Pie Pan cross hair sniper dial in very good original together with the Rolex bubbleback and Lemania pilot watch.

Rolex bubbleback

The Rolex Bubbleback was launched in 1933 and featured the first auto-rotor.  Rolex was not the first to create the automatic movement, but this watch does signify the company’s success in developing a self-winding movement.  Rolex created the auto-rotor movement from the Aegler movement in Hunter watches that featured a “perpetual motion” winding mass.  Rolex patented its first successful perpetually self-winding wristwatch in 1932 and introduced the Bubbleback one year later.  Like most authentic vintage Rolex timepieces a Bubbleback is sure the spark the hearts of vintage watch collectors. For me, it will always have a special place in my heart.

February 2018

For the first time in many years, I have not find or acquire any new vintage watch.Sometimes watch collection depends on much luck and opportunities. After acquiring so many watches for the past years, it is a good time for me to streamline and consolidate my collection.

Lip Restoration project complete

I have been very discipline since the beginning of the year with no additional new watches. My restoration project has made some headway. After finding the original glass for the Lip 2000 watch, I have sent the watch to sifu to restoration. Owing to the festive Christmas and New year, it has taken some time.
