    1979 Omega Constellation Chronometer - birth year watch

    For the past year or so, I've been on the hunt for an affordable birth year watch. I'm a huge Omega and Tag fan but had a hard time finding something that was not incredibly expensive. Of course I want a 1979 speedy to match the one I picked up a few years ago. But....
    A few weeks ago this watch popped up on offer up and after a bit of haggling, I was able to get it for $200.
    It's small, thin, and I forget it's even on! There is a nice patina on the dial and the date color has started to yellow, but for a 40 year old watch, she looks amazing! It even has original box and papers.
    I can't seem to find much about it other than it has the 1343 quartz movement, which I also can't find much about.
    So, what do you all think and what can you tell me about my new friend?

    Congrats, Smokinsteel1! Is that the one with the push-button in the middle of the crown for changing the minutes and seconds?

    Edit: Here is a YouTube video...
