A stunning 1966 chronometer grade Omega Constellation dress watch with sharp original factory printed dial in a 35mm stainless steel case with thick solid 14k yellow gold cap, freshly serviced here at Meticulous and keeping great time. I find you can always spot a truly classy dress watch from across the room, and this is the perfect example.  The sharp clean lines of the case with a lovely thin profile pair perfectly with the with fine black and gold details on the dial and hands. Set on a thin, high quality 19mm black genuine lizard strap it just looks so classy on the wrist, even from a distance. I just love how the original signed Omega crown is inset into the case resulting in a visually minimal reminder of its presence within the overall shape. The dial is amazingly clean and bright, printed with the reminder that it is an officially certified chronometer referring to the famous in-house Omega caliber 564, 24 jewel movement within. A superb quality, incredibly classy 1960's dress watch from the famous house of Omega, ready to wear.
