Omega Constellation Chronometer C Shape

Omega Constellation Chronometer C Shape

SKU: VWS-1649

Here is a wonderful, all original Omega Constellation C Shape from 1971. The brushed silver dial is in very fine condition, with a steel Omega logo and emblem and faceted steel strip hour markers with black contrast and lume dots at the outer ends, double marker at 12 o’clock. There is a tiny mark above the “A” in the Omega emblem, and a few smaller spots around the dial, and there is some small marks of wear around the edge of the dial such as at around 2 and 8 o’clock. The baton hands with the original lume and black contrast are in very fine condition. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the quick-set date. Quick-setting the date should always be done with the hands at the lower half of the dial. Refer to for instructions if you are unsure of how to set the date.


The stainless steel bezel is in fine condition, with a subtle sunburst pattern and some overall wear in the form of small nicks and marks, such as at 1, 2, 4 and 10 o’clock. The stainless steel C shape case with the original crown is in fine condition, with a radial pattern on its face and brushed sides. It shows light overall, perhaps most notable at the right lugs. The stainless steel case back has a crisp and clean Geneva observatory medallion and is in fine condition with light overall wear.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, Omega’s high grade 1011 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-8 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Constellation is one of the most recognizable and sought after vintage watches, and the C shape version is a beautiful part of the series. It looks great on the wrist and goes well with both formal and informal wear.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
