Description

This classic Omega Constellation Ref. 168.004 in stainless steel is in excellent vintage condition. It dates from the 1960’s and measures 35.5mm without original crown.

The silver dial is well preserved and features a subtle vertical brush pattern. Light discoloration is present along the 9:30 to 11:30 edge. Applied silver batons with lume inlays mark the hours, Omega logo at 12 o’clock and signature applied Constellation star at 6 o’clock. The original Omega plexi is present with stamped logo and date magnifier, as are the original silver dauphine hands. Uncommonly found on this reference but present on this example is the original signed hidden crown, which ceased production a number of years ago.

Powering the watch is an automatic Omega Cal. 561. This timeless Omega comes on a black genuine Lizard strap with an original Omega NOS stainless steel buckle.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
