€8,595.00

For sale is an iconic Swiss Made Omega Constellation Automatic Chronometer with reference number 168.045, dating back to 1969 based on its serial number. The case measures 36mm wide by 40mm high, and seamlessly flows over into the integrated bracelet. Both the case and bracelet are entirely made of 18k yellow gold, and so is the dial: the "OM T Swiss Made T OM" can be found underneath the 6 O'Clock position, with OM standing for Or Massif or "solid gold" in French. It's a very hefty watch almost literally worth its weight in gold: the total weight of the watch is around 150 grams.

Behind the original Omega plexiglass crystal, we find a gold tone dial with subtle horizontally brushed finish. Luminous black lacquered hands indicate the time on raised black and gold indices. A day-date window can be found at the 3 O'Clock position. The watch is powered by a high quality Chronometer-grade automatic movement, the Omega Cal. 751. The original yellow gold bracelet and clasp (1155/146) allow this watch to be worn on a wrist with a maximum circumference of around 19.5cm. Three links can be removed to decrease the size to 16.5cm. In order to increase the size past 19.5cm, spare links will have to be sourced online or at an Omega dealership.

The example sold here is in good overall condition considering its age. The case and bracelet show normal wear marks all around, but no coarse damage. The case and bracelet were cleaned, but not polished in order to maintain the original shape. The dial has aged well, with some minor staining and a few marks here and there. The crystal is original, complete with Omega hallmark in the centre, and is in good condition still as well with normal wear marks but no coarse scratches. The crown is original too and bears the Omega logo. The watch received a full service at an Omega Authorised Service Center in Belgium on December 9 2022, and is working perfectly. Accompanying the watch is an original red Omega service box; sadly no original paperwork is present with this piece. A copy of the service invoice will be included, but private information from the previous owner will be redacted.

Your new timepiece will be packaged with great care, and will be shipped out as fast as possible. We usually ship the same day your payment comes in, and provide full insurance as well as a tracking code for all of our packages.
