SOLD OMEGA CONSTELLATION  Gents Vintage Automatic Chronometer Watch 1960

Sorry I have been purchased

A fabulous Omega Constellation stainless steel automatic chronometer wristwatch manufactured in 1960. In amazing overall condition, the case and dial present very well indeed on the wrist and the freshly oiled and adjusted movement runs strongly and keeps time. The back of the watch bears the observatory emblem in 14K solid gold. This timepiece is signed four times , on the case, dial, crown and movement.

The vintage Constellation was Omega's top of the range waterproof chronometer and today it remains one of the most ionic, sought after and collectible of all vintage watches. It is a high end model, produced to compete with other prestige watches made by its main competitors. A chronometer, as opposed to a chronograph (a stop watch), is a timepiece that has passed a series of stringent tests carried out by the world’s major observatories to demonstrate very accurate time keeping (hence the observatory emblem on the rear cover).

Dial: in great condition, finished in black enamel with hours marked by applied silver coloured batons. The dial is signed "Omega Automatic Chronometer Officially Certified Constellation ". It also bears the Omega emblem and Constellation Star. The crystal is clean and clear. The dial has just been returned from professional restoration back to as it looked when new.

Case: stainless steel, in great condition measuring approximately 35 mm across, and 41 mm from lug to lug. The back of the case displays the 14K solid gold observatory emblem in the centre with all eight stars are visible. Looking inside the rear cover it is signed "Omega". The case shows the expected signs of careful use over the years but absolutely no signs of abuse, dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to point out to you.

Movement: cal. 551 Omega signed fully automatic chronometer grade movement with 24 jewels and adjustment to five positions for chronometer standard accuracy. Freshly oiled and adjusted by a master watchmaker, it is running well and keeping time. The serial number, dates the watch to 1960.
