VINTAGE 1962 OMEGA CONSTELLATION BLACK DIAL CALENDAR WATCH 14KT GOLD SHELL ORIGINAL BOX & BUCKLE

Vintage 1962 Omega Constellation black dial calendar watch 14kt gold shell original box & buckle.

This super Omega Constellation model 168.005 was manufactured in 1962 by the serial number 19692091 stamped on the movement.

The 14kt gold-shelled case has the desirable ‘dog-leg’ strap lugs, which are still in perfect condition with nice sharp edges to the shoulders. Measuring 34mm across the bezel, not including the crown and 42.5mm tip-to-tip.

The calibre 561 automatic chronometer movement is in excellent condition, one of the best that we have seen in several years. There is no wear to the gilding or any sign that it has been messed with by amateurs in the past.

The glossy black ’crosshair’ dial is very, very nice indeed. Any imperfections or scratches that you see in the photo’s are on the glass and not the dial. The gold batons, date window and hands are also in perfect condition.

Though the watch has obviously been used regularly, the owner was clearly very careful when wearing it as there are no dings or scratches of any kind. There is no loss or wear to the gold capping and the case / bezel still have nice sharp edges to the shoulders etc.

This beautiful Omega is complete with it’s original ’constellation’ box and strap buckle, which are both in fine condition. The photographs do not do this beautiful watch the justice that it deserves
