Today's offering showcases this classic and rare ladies Constellation. It presents in gorgeous restored condition.
We believe that this model was likely a national production model made exclusively for the Japanese market and have only found photos of one other example in our extensive research.
Powering the watch is Omega's caliber 620 series movement. Its ultra-thin handwound movement measures only 2.5mm thick and was one of Omega's ultra slim models.
It is fully Omega and presents in true expertly restored condition. The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
The only other example that our research turned up had an appliqe star. This one has a painted star and no hole visible from the top, so it is presumably correct.
It was fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker and is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch a new leather strap has been installed 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.
Omega's flagship line for decades, the Constellation represents style, luxury, attention to detail, robust function, and most all, superior precision. Elegant and stately, it is suitable for both casual and professional dress.
Worn on the wrists of Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, Omega watches rank with those from Rolex.
