    The Constellation Monocoque case family were first introduced by Omega in 1966 and were in production in various forms until around 1970.

    These watches contained a great deal of Omega's best ideas, movements, designs and learnings into a product that only existed relatively briefly before being replaced by the more austere 1970s Constellations.

    Excellent article and one could build quite a collection by only focusing on this case variant

    Except the 167.025 which seems to have been seen in person fewer times than either Bigfoot or the Loch-ness monster. I really do wonder if there are some hidden away that just have never seen a camera or if it was an “in theory” model they aborted production on before any were delivered.

    Like the Chupacabra, I don't think that model ever existed. I cannot find Ref.167.(0)025 listed in the Omega, Jules Borel or Boley.de databases. All of the other three variants are listed in Borel and Boley.

    Sometimes we have to accept that what is logical is not always real.
