1978 Omega Constellation Mens Midsize Quartz Watch, Quick-Setting Hour - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5509

Omega's flagship line for decades, the Constellation represents style, luxury, attention to detail, robust function, and most all, superior precision.

The wristwatch showcased in today's offering is a rare and interesting example of one of the company's later vintage Constellation pieces. It has an unusual midsized case with angled facets, strong black dial, and high-grade and somewhat unusual Omega quartz movement with stepper motor and quick-setting hour.

It presents in gorgeous condition. The dial is a perfect refinishing - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

Photos of the inside available upon request.

A four decade old Omega that presents almost like new.

Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els and anyone desiring to wear a watch of excellence, Omega timepieces rank with those of Rolex among the Swiss firms.
