VINTAGE 1971 OMEGA CONSTELLATION STAINLESS STEEL ‘TV SCREEN’

VINTAGE 1971 OMEGA CONSTELLATION STAINLESS STEEL ‘TV SCREEN’ FAULTLESS ‘AS-NEW’ CONDITION WATCH.
THIS FABULOUS GENTLEMEN’S OMEGA WAS A NEWCOMER TO THE COMPANIES CONSTELLATION RANGE IN 1971. THE MODEL 168.047 CONSTELLATION CALENDAR USES THE NEW OMEGA CALIBRE 1001 AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT AND THE EXAMPLE THAT WE HAVE HERE IS IN ‘AS-NEW’ CONDITION, AS CLEAN A MOVEMENT AS WE HAVE SEEN IN AN OMEGA OF THIS AGE.
VERY SLIM IN DESIGN, THE 1001 MOVEMENT ALLOWED THE USE OF SLIMMER CASES WHICH FIT VERY CLOSE TO THE WRIST. THE STEEL ‘T.V. SCREEN’ CASE WAS ALSO NEW TO THE RANGE, MEASURING 33mm ACROSS THE BEZEL, NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 40mm TIP-TO-TIP. THE CASE IS IN PERFECT CONDITION WITH NO WEAR, DINGS OR SCRATCHES AS THEY USUALLY HAVE.
THE BRUSHED SILVERED DIAL IS VERY NICE ALSO, WITH CONTRASTING POLISHED CHROME/BLACK BATON DIVISIONS AND DATE WINDOW. LUMINOUS HANDS OF POLISHED CHROME AND BLACK CONTRAST PERFECTLY WITH THE DIAL.
THE INTEGRAL BRACELET IS IN PERFECT CONDITION, WITH NO NOTICEABLE STRETCH AND WILL FIT UP TO A 7 1/2 INCH WRIST.  THE CLEVER, SLIM DESIGN WITH THE INTEGRAL BRACELET IS ACTUALLY VERY COMFORTABLE TO WEAR. THE WATCH WORKS FAULTLESSLY AND KEEPS VERY GOOD TIME, AS SHOULD EVERY CONSTELLATION.
THE GLASS IS THE ORIGINAL, WITH THE TINY OMEGA SYMBOL IN THE CENTRE AND THE CROWN IS THE ORIGINAL ALSO. THE WATCH COMES COMPLETE WITH THE ORIGINAL PRESENTATION BOX WHICH IT HAS CLEARLY SPENT MOST OF IT’S LIFE STORED AWAY IN.
ALL IN ALL A SUPER OMEGA CONSTELLATION IN WONDERFUL CONDITION AND A SOUND INVESTMENT, YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER EXAMPLE.
