The Watch

 Who wants a lot of vintage bang for their buck? If it's you look no further, we believe these Constellations would be an eye watering amount of money if new in today's economy.
These Omega Constellations are really well thought of in the Vintage Watch World thanks in no small part to this case configuration, known as “c-shaped”, was designed by the late Gerald Genta of Royal Oak, Bvlgari and Nautilus fame.
They look insanely cool on the Wrist, have a great Movement and are of Iconic Design.
This Guy also comes with a Omega Box.

Getting Acquainted

Bits that stand out:
- Absolutely love the Dial, the Black, Gold and Silver really works beautifully.
- Genta Designed Case.
- Unusual to find Dauphine Handset.
Nitty Gritty:
- Replacement Crown.

Overall the Constellation is in very nice Vintage condition.
The Dial is in lovely condition, however it does have some very very minor marks which is to be expected of a now 60 year old.
Steel Case is in very good nick.
