    Help please, is this Omega Constellation a Redial? Thank You!

    Hi, This is y first posting here, looking forward to many more. I was hoping you could tell me if this Omega Constellation 168.004 is a redial. According to the serial number on the movement it dates to 1966-67

    I am pretty sure it is a redial but wanted to double check with the pros

    I really appreciate any help. On the bottom of the dial it says T Swiss Made T

    Thank You Much

    There are some re-dial experts here who will hopefully chime in, but is that a 'T' in the darkness after 'MADE'? If so, it doesn't appear to be an equal distance from MADE as the first T is from SWISS, which may indicate redial. Plus, I don't see lume pips or lumed indices which the second T indicates the presence of.

    I would say redial. The font of 'Constellation' is off.

    Do you have high res pictures of the dial, caseback and movement? And a ref. No.?

    Sorry, quality is insufficient to say anything about the dial. For instqnce, I cannot see the lume, nor can I see the SWISS MADE font.

    A genuine black dial in my opinion and in pretty good nick for a fifty year old dial. Recesses at the base of the markers look to me they have been re-lumed and also the hands look recently lumed too.

    Cheers

    what is your opinion on the font of Constellation? It differs from my Connie when comparing the arch of the C and the curl at the end of both N's.

    Desmond also discusses font differences in this essay, mostly in Part II...
