1961 Omega Constellation Vintage Mens Watch, Automatic - 14K Gold & Stainless Steel


Item No. HW02

Today's offering showcases a gold top Constellation with solid gold bezel. Featuring a "De Luxe" dial and Bombe style case with lyre lugs, it showcases the quality that made these classic watches Omega's flagship line.

The gold and stainless steel case with gold Constellation emblem on the back is in good condition with signs of polishing. The two-tone dial is a vintage restoration. And the 24 jewel officially certified chronometer movement is running true.

Our watchmaker has fully cleaned and oiled the movement of this Constellation and installed a new Omega crystal in late 2014. We just re-tested it, and it continues to function well.

It comes equipped with Hirsch strap and Omega buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment and use.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
