This heavy Omega Constellation features an impressive yellow-gold bracelet and is embellished with the rare and unusual bark finishing decoration. The watch is, furthermore, fitted with a tiger’s eye crown, which gradually changes in color throughout. While this detail may be easily missed, it is instantly recognizable to the discerning eye. It is interesting to note how this cabochon, in certain ways, kind of recalls the style of the dial, which definitely is the main character of the whole watch. It is difficult to understand how the original black color of the dial has changed so much until getting to this charming red color with darker and lighter shades. Possibly due to the sun or some other natural factors, anyway the veining is absolutely eye-catching and perfectly adorns someone’s wrist. Preserved in remarkable conditions, this watch can easily be considered as a unique example with this type of hints and the perfect addiction to anyone’s collection.
