1961 Omega Constellation Vintage Mens Chronometer Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. WK-3065

Celebrating humanity's supreme achievements and performances, from man's landing on the moon to the Olympic competitions, Omega watches have been prized for generations by those seeking the most precise timepieces in the world. Since its creation in 1848 by Louis Brandt, Omega has relentlessly pursued watchmaking perfection, earning worldwide honors and fame.

Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, and Ernie Els, Omega timepieces rank with Rolex and other of the world's best Swiss firms.

The Omega Constellation showcased in today's offering is an example of a vintage "pie pan" dial Constellation. Featuring a De Luxe Pie Pan dial and Bombe style case with lyre lugs, it possesses a wonderful vintage style and embodies the quality that made these watches Omega's flagship line.

It has fully Omega parts down to its signed Omega crystal. The stainless steel case with a hypocampus emblem on the back is in excellent condition. The silver dial has interestingly aged with a leather texture, giving the watch a true vintage and very masculine style.

Its high-performance, 24 jewel caliber 551 chronometer movement is running extremely strong and true, keeping time on par with a brand new Constellation in our testing recording position. Please inquire if you would like it freshly serviced.

For the finishing touch, we have equipped it with a brand new crocodile strap and genuine Omega buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a 90-day international warranty on the movement and its function, a Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
