    FS: vintage Omega Constellation Chronometer in-house quartz 1977

    First impression: it's a quartz?! sure, but a hell of a quartz! 1)omega in-house movement cal.1343 2) certified chronometer 3) omega's top line -constellation. Can it get better for a quartz watch? not really IMO. Omega Constellation Chronometer Quartz, the cosc norm for these is "Average daily rate at 23 °C: ±0.07s", well pretty impressive for an analog watch, and even for a digital. Don't ask me if it makes sense to send an accurate quartz watch for chronometer certification but I guess it was part of the prestige of the constellation line and can only imagine its price in 1977. Ref. is 398.0849. Watch works well as it should, case was never polished, dial and hands in a nice preserved condition as you can see on the pics. The only thing that needs to be fixed is to replace the crown to a push-in type(there are a few on the bay for $20-$30) because the one now on the watch is a simple replacement and you can't set the minutes altough you can imagine why I never replaced it myself, its perfectly accurate and you can set the hour hand separately(very practical for travelers in different timezones).With this price I believe there's plenty of room for the buyer to replace the crown, I can guarantee that the minute/second setting is fully working with a push-in type crown and even if you don't replace it, you would barely use it.For a better understanding how the time setting works,here's a link to its user manual An English Omega Owners Manual for a 1342 movement
    Stainless steel 32mm diameter never polished case with sharp edges as a razor, white gold bezel which alone is probably worth a $100 as scrap gold.Sapphyre crystal, the bracelet can fit a max. wrist of 19.5cm-7.67inch. I remember that the movement was cleaned 4-5years ago, yes a quartz can use that also sometimes,sorry I doubt I could find the service receipt for that. New Sony battery fitted ~2months ago.
    I would love if the watch goes to somebody who appreciates it's a quartz chronometer as a curiosity and not just because its omega written on the dial and affordable price. Asking price:$215
    Feel free to contact me with any questions, I'm at your service

    Asking price:
    $215

    Shipping options:
    1)Expedited International shipping worldwide $30 with EMS (aka. USPS express for the US) ,cheaper shipping(~$15) for EU and Asia with priority mail can be also arranged,please contact.
    2)DHL or other courier -please contact me for quote
    Ships from Hungary/serbia, based on the destination and my location at that moment,for EU ships from Hungary.
    Trade offers with cash correction on either side are always welcome, I'm mainly interested in vintage chronometers and rarities from Omega,Longines.

    also 100% pos. feedback on the bay....

    The watch is sold as is, returns can only be accepted if the watch doesnt match the description or the pictures but ONLY from established buyers that have a proven track record here,on the bay or similar.

    You get the watch well packaged,always shipped on time as agreed and a tracking number so you can track the status of the shipment but please note that I have no control over your countries customs or eventually additional import duties and delays because of these procedures.If you dont understand how these costs and delays can happen, that can't be controlled from my side, please never buy anything from me. I also can't guarantee and be held responsible if your countries postal operator looses a package or similar(altough never happened),if you have such concerns or happened to you previously, please ask only for insured shipping.
    Based on previous experiences expedited shipping to US takes 5-8 workdays depending on your location. If it gets stuck in customs procedure(very rarely and takes 1-3days),it can take a bit longer. Shipments to Asia with EMS can arrive as fast as 4-6days depending on your location.From EU to EU with expedited shipping 3-5 workdays. I always welcome a face to face deal at these locations: Budapest,Belgrade,Vienna or per agreement for more expensive pieces, but only if you're sure about your purchase, I have a tight schedule,thanks for your understanding.

    Can accept payment with paypal or wire transfer USD or EUR. For wire the price is 4% less as I have no PP costs to cover.

    NOTE: "First to pay, first to buy" policy, I am not able to hold back the watch for an interested party 2 days until he makes up his mind for a half minute paypal transfer or goes offline for hours in middle of a conversation.Thanks for your understanding.If the watch gets sold,it will be published immediately in the thread.

    For any additional questions feel free to contact me.Communication is welcome over PM,mail,phone,skype,viber,whatsapp. For non forum members, contact me on psvintage(at) hotmail com
