Omega's flagship line for decades, the Constellation represents style, luxury, attention to detail, robust function, and most of all, superior precision. Elegant and stately, it is suitable for both casual and professional dress.
Today's offering showcases this retro styled classic Constellation chronometer with beautiful Tiffany & Co. robin's egg blue dial. It's a prime example of a later vintage mechanical Constellation, Omega's flagship watch, before the quartz revolution took hold.
Featuring an officially certified automatic chronometer movement with quick-set date and a robust stainless steel case, this late 60's - early 70's era Omega demonstrates why the Constellation was the company's flagship line.
Here are some of its 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
- Hacking feature for accurate time-setting
- Tiffany blue dial with wide steel markers topped with black for easy reading.
- Distinctive chunky retro styled case
It has all of its original Omega parts down to even the original signed crystal! It has just finished a true expertly done restoration - it presents in gorgeous condition. Our photos couldn't do it justice!
The case presents as mint. The dial has been meticulously custom refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with genuine Omega replacements, replacing the sweep second wheel and installing a new correct mainspring, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $595 value).
It is running strong and true. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin leather strap 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.
