Today's offering showcases this prime example of "C" or third generation Constellation. It has all of its original parts down to the original crystal gasket!
It has just finished a true expertly done restoration - it presents as a 9.8 out of 10.
Powering the watch is Omega's caliber 1011 movement officially certified as a chronometer and with a quick-setting date and with 23 jewels.
The ultra-thin automatic movement measures only 4.25mm thick. It has a thinner rotor to reduce stress on winding parts.
Its case presents as gorgeous mint with perfectly crisp facets on the lugs and bezel. Our photos couldn't dit it justice. Its dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration its chronometer movement has been serviced. It is running extremely strong and true. Amazingly after a half a century it continues to keep perfect time in our testing recording position like an Omega leaving the factory today.
For the finishing touch we have installed a new leather band and aftermarket Omega style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
