A stunning vintage 1966 chronometer grade Omega Constellation with wonderful original factory printed slightly patinaed tropical dial in a solid stainless steel C-shape case with original tang buckle.  Powered by the famous in-house Omega calibre 561 with 24 jewels, adjusted to 5 positions, this watch was officially certified a chronometer before it was originally sold.  I just love the classy, sharp look on the wrist with a lovely thin, elegant profile you just don't fine on my watches these day.  A true 1960's beauty from the famous house of Omega.
