    Vintage Omega Constellation watch

    Hi

    I have an old Omega Constellation watch that was handed down to me and I would like to find out more about it? I don't see any markings on the outside.

    It still runs never been cleaned

    Thanks

    Nice piece! It looks to be from the 50s or 60s but I'm not enough of a Constellation collector to say much from the dial/case. Better pics would help (what do the dial and caseback say?). And a pic of the insides (the movement) would be peachy keen! (old American slang for really nice).

    That it still runs is wonderful. But it won't keep running if you don't service it before using... the lubrication is not working well anymore.

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Very nice! That one dates to the late 60s. Post pictures of the movement and inside of the case back and we can tell you more.

    It is a constellation C model, likely to be from 1966/67 or later, solid gold with integrated solid gold bracelet. It will have a 561 or 564 movement. If pulling and pushing the crown changes the date it is a 564.

    If you plan on keeping it I would get it serviced. At this point metal is turning on metal as the oil would have dried up.
