This Omega Dennision Deluxe is one the the rarest Omega Constellations out there, the watch is a very rare English made Omega Constellation, the movement and dial supplied to Dennsion who made the 18K gold case for the watch. These cases were 100% hand made and the quality far exceed that of even the Swiss versions.
Dennison were a very famous English watch case manufacturer who made cases for many famous brands including Rolex, Omega, Tudor, IWC. This was primarily due to the import restrictions in the later part of the 20th century around gold, as such the gold cases were made in the UK and movements and dials sent by the manufacturers directly to Dennison.
This really is a very good example, by very good I think it is genuinely as good as they come. It is showing very little wear as you can see from the images, the case is 18 K solid gold, as is the case back, the dial is also solid 18 K gold and matches the case perfectly.
This is a really very special watch and at 34 mm excluding the crown it wears beautifully, the automatic cal 561 24 jewel movement is mint as is the rest of the watch
18K Dennison Constellations really don’t come up very often and certainly not examples like this one, it looks as if it is brand new and was at the time the absolutely top of the line in Swiss watch making.
Fitted to a high quality black leather strap with English made solid gold Omega buckle
The 17604535 serial number dates this beautiful piece to 1959 which is makes it incredible to think its nearly 60 years old when you see it.
