Today's offering showcases this striking example of "C" or third generation Constellation. It is fully Omega and presents in true expertly restored condition. It presents as a 9.7 out of 10.
Powering the watch is Omega's caliber 1011 movement officially certified as a chronometer and with a quick-setting date.
The ultra-thin automatic movement measures only 4.25mm thick. It has a thinner rotor to reduce stress on winding parts.
The dial has been perfectly refinished. The printing could pass for Omega factory done work to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration the movement has been freshly fully overhauled and is running true.
We have installed a new band 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.
Despite the fact that it's forty years old, on the wrist the watch truly looks like new.
Celebrating humanity's supreme achievements and performances, from man's landing on the moon to the Olympic competitions, Omega watches have been prized for generations by those seeking the most precise timepieces in the world. Since its creation in 1848 by Louis Brandt, Omega has relentlessly pursued watchmaking perfection, earning worldwide honors and fame.
Worn on the wrists of Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, Omega watches rank with those from Rolex.
