    Vintage Omega Constellation

    Hello! Just wondering what you out there think of this vintage Omega Constellation. Is it real? Do you think the dial is original?

    It's sometimes hard to say if the dial is original from pics, but that looks fine to me.

    Dial looks ok. I'm not sure about the movement. Strange color on the yellow wheel.

    This thread might help you somewhat

    I'm curious; how does a picture of a completely different movement convince you (or anyone else) about the authenticity of this one? Did you link to the wrong thread by accident?

    To Imni's point, the mainspring gear looks to have a different finish compared to the rest of the watch. Swapping one wheel isn't necessarily a big deal, but the non-matching color is a bit off-putting.

    Sorry but it looks like a re-dial to me. I'd need a better picture.

    I like this dial and think there is a greater than 50% chance it is original. I would like it better if I could see if there is a very small "Swiss Made" at the bottom. I cannot see this in the photo, but the angle of the photograph is critical, so it could still be there.

    Case looks to be in nice condition also. It's a shame someone cleaned the movement so harshly.
