First launched by Omega in 1952, the Omega Constellation has remained their highest grade of watch, and here we have a very stylish vintage Omega Constellation watch reference 168.029 dating from 1968 with the very rare and hard to find linen dial.
The linen dial is like the name implies one where the dial has a very soft and subtle linen look and texture to it and on its own looks fantastic.
Then there is of course the fact that this is an Omega Constellation which has always used the highest grade and quality of movement ever produced by Omega. On top of this, the case has a great style and look to it and is called the Constellation III or Constellation “C” case, as it was both the third design for the Omega Constellation and its shape from end to end resembles the letter “C” by being rounded all the way to the lugs.
The case measures 35mm across plus the Omega crown but thanks to the shape of the case this makes it appear larger and sits so well on the wrist.
It is fitted on the original Omega band that had been shortened so an extension clip has been added if needed, however as it is secured by spring bars, this can be easily removed if not needed and this will not have any affect on the band or its strength at all.
Inside is the brilliant 24 jewelled automatic Omega calibre 564 that has just come back from a full service, runs perfect and comes with our twelve month warranty.
A fantastic vintage Omega Constellation that is just perfect.
