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 prime example of an uncommon tonneau Constellation with very cool blue vignette dial. The color dial is a little richer and deeper than the photos suggest - they couldn't to do it justice!
Tonneau Constellations are one of the few that have a more rectangular dress watch appearance.
Featuring an officially certified automatic chronometer movement with a sleek stainless steel case, this late 60's - early 70's era Omega demonstrates why the Constellation was the company's flagship line.
Its caliber 1001 ultra-thin automatic movement measures only 4.25mm thick and has a thinner rotor to reduce stress on winding parts and is adjusted to run accurately in five positions and across a range of temperatures.
It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. It presents in gorgeous condition - a 9.5 out of 10. The case presents as just short of perfect mint.
The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration the movement has been freshly fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker. It is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have installed a new calfskin 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 attesting to its performance.
