Gold Capped and Stainless Steel
Ref: 14381 3 SC
Here we are excited to offer a classic fine wristwatch from Omega. Constellations were Omega's highest grade dress watches with automatic chronometer grade movements, beautifully designed dial options, a 14kt gold observatory medallion in the caee back and shapely lugs. Gold capping was used which is an upgrade from standard plating.
Due to an increase in popularity many of these dials have been restored (which is okay if a good standard) though this one is an original dial, making it a little more interesting. The dial configuration is also the rarer 'no date' version with arabic quarterly markers. The dial shows a light even patina with the crosshair design and gold applied star above 6.
The hands and hour markers are also gold with the hands showing nicely aged lume.
The 34mm gold capped case shows some light wear, though we have not polished the case as we prefer to leave this watch in it's original oondition. The lugs are attached and have a slight curve, giving the case a more delicate, shapely look.
The automatic chronometer Cal 551 movement is very attractive, with many collectors considering the 5XX series as Omega's best vintage movements.
Screw down case back.
The gold plated crown is not the original but functions perfectly well.
We have fitted a new black leather strap to this watch.
This watch uses the automatic chronometer grade Omega 551.
Ths movement has 34 jewels and 50 hour power reserve.
Frequency of 19,800.
The watch shows some ageing to the dial and case. The crystal has been replaced so is scratch free and the movement serviced. The strap is brand new.
