1974 Omega Constellation Chronometer Vintage Mens Watch - 18K Gold Plated and Stainless Steel


Item No. 6248

Today's offering showcases this classic and rare mens Constellation. It presents in gorgeous restored condition.

We believe that this model was a national production model made exclusively for the Japanese market and have only found photos of a couple of other examples.

Powering the watch is Omega's caliber 1011 series movement officially certified as a chronometer and with 23 jewels. While most 1011's have a date, for this uncommon model it came from the factory with a 1011 without date.

Its ultra-thin automatic movement measures only 4.25mm thick and was made with a thinner rotor to reduce stress on winding parts.

It is fully Omega and presents in true expertly restored condition. It presents as about a 9.7 or out of 10. The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

It was fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker less than three years ago and is keeping time virtually on par with a new Constellation.

For the finishing touch a very high quality handmade alligator strap that cost $199.95 has been installed and a genuine Omega 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.

Omega Constellations:

Worn on the wrists of Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, Omega watches rank with those from Rolex.
