In fully restored condition this is the iconic top of the range Omega Constellation from 1963, in solid 18ct yellow gold. The case is a large size 35mm diameter, not including the Omega Crown. The watch has a Chronometre grade movement and the rare and sought after black ‘Cross Hair’ dial. And the Omega Constellation emblem on the back is hardly worn at all indicating the watch has seen only very light use.

The Dial

Mint, Black, ‘Cross Hair’, Dial – with raised gold OMEGA signature and Omega logo. Signed Constellation, Automatic, Chronometer and with a ‘Date’ function at 3 o’clock. And below 6 – ‘Swiss Made’ at the very bottom. Raised, applied guilt baton hour markers – the original restored gold hour, minute and sweep seconds hands are in superb condition.  A new, correct ‘Omega’ centre signed lens has been fitted to complete the dial.  Please take a close look at the photos of this fabulous dial – it is the original dial, which has been restored to the very highest standards.

The Case

This is a particularly beautiful stepped case with ornate lugs in superb condition, lightly polished 18ct solid gold with a waterproof screw down case back*. – It measures approx 42mm lug to lug and 35mm diameter not including the Omega signed crown – Inside the case back bears the Omega Watch Co. Made in England and the branding and A.L.D. (for Dennison)– The case carries the reference numbers 1685415 and 200824

The case has been professionally cleaned and polished and has no scratches or marks or dents of any kind. The back has the famous Constellation logo which is in original, lightly worn condition – See photos for details of this superb case, especially the Constellation on the back. This is often worn to a lesser or greater degree and sometimes missing completely. Here it is totally clear and distinct.

*Originally specified as Water Resistant. This has not been tested and is not guaranteed.

The Movement

The orignal Omega Chronometer grade Cal.561 copper-toned automatic movement is pristine. It is signed Omega Watch Co. Swiss, Twenty Four 24 Jewels – with serial number 20,341,586 which dates its manufacture to 1963. It winds, runs & sets smoothly and is working perfectly and keeping excellent time – Signed Omega Watch Co Swiss – Twenty Four 24 jewels – and Cal. 561 Adjusted 5 Positions.

These Chronometer grade 561 movements with 50 hours power reserve, are very highly regarded for their accuracy and reliability. And this watch has just been fully overhauled and serviced by our Omega guru and it is calibrated to run arrow straight within +5 seconds / day! This is no exaggeration. We have seen the test results from an electronic watch test instrument and in its half wound state this watch is running accurately within 5 seconds per day!.

The Strap and Buckle

The watch is complimented with a very high quality ‘croc’ leather strap with an aftermarket Omega gold plated buckle. And if you would prefer a different colour or style of strap please let us know and we will do our best to oblige. If a new Omega strap is preferred, this can be fitted for an extra £50.

Box and Papers

This watch comes with an original vintage Omega presentation box as shown. And although there are no original papers, the watch will then be supplied with a detailed written receipt and 12 months warranty. A separate written valuation for insurance purposes will also be included.

This is a beautiful and fine example of the flagship Omega which is still produced to this day! Overall it is in wonderful condition and cannot be faulted. If you would like to buy a 196os, 18ct gold Omega Constellation this ticks all the boxes. And it comes with a vintage Omega box, and 12 months guarantee!
