VINTAGE 1952 FIRST OMEGA CONSTELLATION, STAINLESS STEEL ,MODEL 2652-3SC 100% ORIGINAL

Vintage 1952 first Omega Constellation, stainless-steel model 2652-3sc watch, 100% original.

This wonderful gentlemen’s Omega is a very special watch. The model 2652-3sc was the very first model constellation and this particular one is one of the first examples produced.

The constellation was one of omega’s most technically advanced designs in 1952, with it’s calibre 354 automatic ’bumper’ movement.

The stainless-steel case is in very, very nice original condition and with no noticeable wear at all and nice sharp edges to the shoulders etc.

The movement is also in very nice condition, as good as we have seen in an omega bumper with just a little discolouration to the rotor, which does not detract from the beauty of the movement.

The case measures 35mm across the bezel, not including the crown and 43mm tip-to-tip. Both case and bezel are in beautiful original condition with no noticeable wear, dings or scratches. The screw down back has the gold constellation medalion which has no noticeable wear as they usually have and has just a little light scratching from gentle use over the years.

The original white ’deluxe’ type ‘cross-hair’ dial is absolutely beautiful, with contrasting gold ’arrowhead’ markers and dagger hands.

The watch works faultlessly, winding and setting as it should and keeps very good time. You will notice also the original octagonal winding crown, which is still in good order.

The watch still retains the original omega stainless-steel buckle, though the original leather part of the strap was a little too perished so we have replaced it.

The watch is complete with the original constellation presentation box, which it has clearly been kept in most of it’s life, and is itself in excellent condition also.

We don’t see first model constellations very often and we have never had one in this wonderful original condition.
