    Vintage Omega Constellations - Let's See Yours!

    I'll start off the thread with this beautiful Omega Constellation 1961 cal. 551




    This watch was origionally purchased in 1961 by my grandfather in Switzerland.

    My grandfather passed the watch to my father just as he left for Canada in 1988.

    My father passed the watch to me the day I left home for flight school.

    One day I shall pass it on to my future son.

    Now let's see yours!

    Regards, Diego

    As I have watches dating back before WWII, I don't really think of my '88 Constellation as a "vintage". To help get this thread moving here are some pics.

    To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

    Yup, that style has certainly been neglected and they aren't bad watches, although I prefer the more traditional versions.

    Hope you enjoyed the 76 Lafite awhile ago - it was probably my favourite Lafite of that decade (although I hold a perverse affection for the demanding 1975s). Is the watch contemporaneous with the wine? I'd think that would be about the right date.

    That bottle was quite nice. Opened it a couple years back for an excellent dinner with special friends. It was a real treat.
