Description

This Omega Constellation Ref. 168.017 is in great vintage condition and features an unpolished stainless steel case. Dating from 1970 this watch measures 34mm not including the crown.

Through the original Omega stamped plexi crystal can be seen the unrestored “linen” textured dial, silver applied hour markers with onyx inlays, applied OMEGA logo at the 12 o'clock position, and signature applied Constellation star at 6 o'clock. The original date wheel is visible at 3 o'clock and original black painted hour and second hands are present, with minor restoration to the finish visible through a loupe. Minor spotting evenly spaced across the dial is visible in certain light. The signed Omega crown is sized appropriately but not original to the watch.

Powered by an automatic Omega Cal. 564, this watch comes on a black leather strap with original NOS stainless steel Omega 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.
