    Omega began producing this series of watches in 1952. The symbol of ‘ququ, gossip, and fly’, which symbolized its identity, became the key words of antique watch collectors. Omega constellation series astronomical watches are now the style sought after by many collectors. This ‘Gossip Quer’ is equipped with an early 505 observatory movement and is automatically wound. It is thicker than the later 551 and 561 and has better travel accuracy.
   I also found that the dial of this watch does not have the word ‘SWISS MADE’, so it is inferred that the dial of this watch may be scrubbed. It may be for this reason that the 18K solid gold Omega constellation of such a good appearance only cost 15,000 yuan.
