    Looks legit to me at first glance. Would like a better look at the crown.

    I have my doubts about it being a original crown.

    Don't buy it and better buy an older c case constellation from 1967-1969 with a 564 or 751 movement which are of much higher quality than this one

    It is a bad example and you would need to spend some money to get that watch in satisfactory condition. Needs a service- the movement looks mucky. The crown needs replacing with omega signed one. The case needs a good polish. The strap could do with replacing too - its a spidal twist one so likely after market?

    There is something bugging me about the dial. The batton (or dot under it) at 6 is obscuring the 'swiss made'. Something dodgy there! The dots do not seem to be perfectly aligned with all the batons.*

    In Omega terms the 1021 wasn't the best movement, but that aside and rating it objectively, it's better than many of the same period. The case will be heavy gold capped or plated and should polish up okay, a brown leather strap will improve appearance too, I'd say if it can be purchased for little money I would give it a go. It's also one of the few Omegas with the model name above the manufactures on the dial
