Breathtaking original Omega factory vintage golden linen dial that just sparkles wonderfully in the light. It really embraces everything that we love about Vintage Constellations and gives that Watch another dimension on the Wrist, trust me you will be awestruck when you catch this in the light. You can see this on the YouTube video. (link attached at the top)
The Dial is in a condition, that is a Collector's dream, unmolested and unrestored this fantastic Original factory Dial is in beautiful condition.
You will be very hard pressed to find a better example than this Chap.
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial and what a superb one at that.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Top Quality Gold Capped (probably 14k) Stainless Steel Tonneau or "C" shaped Case with Fluted Bezel.
The very well proportioned 35mm case, features a lovely Fluted bezel and this Tonneau or "C" Shaped case wears beautifully, whilst wrapping comfortably around the Wrist. It is the epitome of 70's Luxury.
The Case is in very good condition for its age with some age related markings to the Gold Cap, which is understandable when you think how soft a metal Gold is. The age related markings are mainly to the common wear point, the lugs. I've got to be honest though it is minor and barely noticeable with that gorgeous Linen Dial and Fluted Bezel which draws your eye in.
The Bezel is in very nice vintage condition, the ridges are remained sharp.
6 notch Caseback in very nice nick, featuring the Famous Omega Geneva Observatory caseback medallion. The eight stars on this gold tone medallion represent the eight observatory chronometer competitions Omega won in the 20th century.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 37.5mm
End of lug to lug: 40.4mm
Lug Spacing: 19mm
This Case was rated Water resistant back in the Day, it is now a Vintage Timepiece, it has NOT been tested for Water Resistance and if you wish to Submerge this Watch, you will need to have the Watch Professionally Resealed before doing so!!
Hands, Crystal and Crown
Original Hands are in very good order.
New crystal has been fitted as part of the Service.
When the Watch came to us the Original Crown was so badly worn you couldn't even grip it! So our Watchmaker has dipped into his seemingly endless Vintage Omega spares and fitted a Original Omega vintage crown which looks fantastic.
On a new 19mm tan brown Leather strap with Gold Plated buckle that compliments the Watch beautifully.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
