VINTAGE 1966 OMEGA CONSTELLATION, STAINLESS STEEL, WITH CYCLOPS DATE

VINTAGE 1966 OMEGA CONSTELLATION ‘CYCLOPS’ CALENDAR WATCH ‘C’ CASE CALIBRE 561.

THIS BEAUTIFUL GENTLEMEN’S OMEGA WAS AT THE TOP OF THE COMPANIES RANGE IN 1966 AND IS UNUSUAL, HAVING THE ’CYCLOPS’ MAGNIFIER OVER THE DATE WINDOW WHICH IS SELDOM SEEN.

THE MODEL 168.017 CONSTELLATION CALENDAR USES THE OMEGA CALIBRE 561 AUTOMATIC CHRONOMETER MOVEMENT AND THE EXAMPLE THAT WE HAVE HERE IS IN EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION, THE MOVEMENT IS AS CLEAN AS WHEN IT LEFT THE FACTORY IN 1966.

THE STEEL CASE MEASURES 35mm ACROSS THE BEZEL, NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 41mm TIP-TO-TIP. THE STAINLESS-STEEL ‘C’ SHAPE CASE IS IN PRISTINE CONDITION, WITH NO DINGS OR SCRATCHES AND THE SMOOTH POLISHED BEZEL IS VERY NICE, WITH NO WEAR OR DINGS AS THEY USUALLY HAVE.

THE SILVERED DIAL IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, WITH CONTRASTING SILVER BATON DIVISIONS AND HANDS STILL RETAINING THEIR ORIGINAL BLACK FILLING. THE ORIGINAL CROWN IS STILL PRESENT AND IN PERFECT CONDITION WITH NO WEAR.

THE WATCH WORKS FAULTLESSLY AND KEEPS VERY GOOD TIME, NOT SURPRISING AS THE CALIBRE 561 MOVEMENT IS ONE OF THE FINEST OF IT’S DAY.

THESE ’C’ CASE CONSTELLATIONS ALWAYS LOOK MUCH BETTER ON A LEATHER STRAP THAN THE BRACELET VERSIONS AND WE HAVE FITTED A NEW QUALITY CROCODILE-GRAIN EXAMPLE.

A REALLY LOVELY EXAMPLE OF THE ‘CYCLOPS’ MODEL CONSTELLATION AND A SUPER EXAMPLE OF THE NOW VERY COLLECTABLE ‘C’ CASE.
