1969 Omega Constellation Vintage Mens Watch, Automatic, Date - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5627

The cool retro Omega Constellation showcased in today's offering is a prime example of a late 60's era vintage Constellation, Omega's flagship watch.

Here are some of its more features:

* Officially certified as a chronometer by the C.O.S.C.

* Ultra-thin design automatic movement measuring only 4.25mm thick

* Thinner rotor to reduce stress on key winding parts

* Quick-setting date

* Hacking feature for accurate time-setting

* Silver dial with steel markers topped with black. A very cool monochrome style.

* Distinctive full sized retro styled case. The diameter of the watch is the same as a Rolex Datejust, although the chunky case gives the watch a larger presence on the wrist than a Datejust.

The watch is fully original down to the dial, hands, and crown. It is in gorgeous original condition and has just been fully overhauled. On the wrist is looks like new.

We have equipped it with a new crocodile strap and new Omega buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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.
