We are happy to offer this super “dog legged” steel Constellation with it´s very nice cross hairs piepan dial! On the dial the gold hour markers are fitted with onyx inserts. The hour and minute hands have matching black paint instead of luminecense (“lume”) material. Without lume on the dial and hands, everything keeps fresh longer beneath the crystal! Even though many dials with lume are in perfect condition after 60 or so years, the quality of the Tritium lume varies, as does the method the material was applied in the first place. We are therefore clear to our buyers that a “no lume” dial is our first priority. For collectors this point of course counts too: Watches from the fifties through to the seventies usually have lume, therefore the no lume examples are rarer.
This Constellation’s automatic caliber 564 movement has been fully serviced and is guaranteed for 12 months. The serial number is 26024726 dates the watch to 1967/68. These movements have the quick date change, activated by pulling out the crown, gently pumping one date at the time, from the crown position passed the setting of the time. The octagonal crown, by the way, is the desirable, hard to get, original issue for these piepan Omega Constellations. The 34 mm steel case shows some wear from use, but being high quality steel all around, it is not damaged in any way.
