Omega 18K Gold Constellation C-1964, UNTOUCHED! Item #2624 ON HOLD
This was Omega’s best wristwatch of the period. One of the best watches they ever made, and we believe this is one of the very best examples you are likely to ever see.
C-1964 Omega Constellation in SOLID 18K GOLD is about as perfect as it gets for a vintage watch. This one has never been touched, never been polished. Everything about it is ALL ORIGINAL.
The Solid 18K Gold case is in wonderful condition, with every edge and angle still nice and sharp, as it was when new. Take a look at the photos to see that 45-degree angle on the dogs’ leg lugs. Just outstanding. It measures 34.4mm across without the crown 42.5 from lug tip to lug tip. Finishing it off, the watch has its original signed crystal and original signed Constellation crown.
This Constellation boasts a spectacular pie-pan dial that is all original finish. The original hands look perfect, with all all its original luminous matching.
The watch is powered by Omega’s Caliber 561 chronometer-grade automatic movement. It’s marked “Twenty-Four 24 Jewels” and is also marked “Adjusted to Five (5) Positions and Temperature”. One of Omega’s iconic 500 Series movements. A better quality and more finely finished movement than the ETA-based ones used by Omega today.
We paired the watch with one of our finest handmade alligator straps in a rich dark brown. Topping it off is a GENUINE gold filled Omega buckle.
The comes completely and correctly serviced by us. At the time of service, we installed a new mainspring. It is running as new and keeping very good time. We made sure to ultrasonically clean the case only. We did no polishing or refinishing. This watch was so untouched that it still had its original caseback gasket from the factory.
