OMEGA CONSTELLATION MENS VINTAGE WATCH CROSSHAIR CAL 565 BLACK DIAL + BOX
1. Rice bracelet
2. Black dial crosshair
3. Stunning condition
4. Omega box
5. Additional leather strap
A classy looking dress watch. Would suit an office environment or formal occasion such as a black tie event.
This comes with the Omega steel "beads of rice" bracelet and additional new black leather strap which gives the watch another dimension.
The movement (engine of the watch) is Automatic self winding which means its purely mechanical (uses gears) and no battery will ever be needed.
This dial has been refinished in black and looks new. Overall the watch is in very good condition. Still be realistic with condition and do not expect mint. This a watch from the 1960's so study the photos as this naturally makes up part of the description. There will be minor imperfections but still overall if you view the close ups this is still sold as very good condition.
The back case has the Constellation observaroy logo ion gold.
Omega box seen is included. These are worth a fair bit on their own.
Vintage watches are smaller than today's standard so please ensure you are comfortable with the sizes listed here. This watch actually feels is a little bigger than most vintage Omega, most sizes are around 33mm without crown. So perhaps if you are on the fence about the size this perhaps maybe the right fit.
View my feedback, I mainly sell high end luxury vintage watches (and occasionally new watchers) - I have literally hundreds of positive feedback just selling vintage Omega.
Case Width: Approx 35mm
Metal: Stainless steel
Year Manufactured: 1960-1969
Band / Strap: Black aftermarket leather strap and Omega steel bracelet
The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in excellent condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.
To drum up interest I am shipping Worldwide for this one. Any collector out there I'm sure you would agree what a rare find this is. I can dispatch within 24 hours of payment being received. You will receive very fast.

3. The association between OMEGA and swimming dates back to the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games. The relationship is still going strong.
4. Omega was a major supplier of watches to large ministries of defense, especially during the 1st and 2nd World Wars. The company's timepieces would go on to be used by the armed and special forces of British, France, Italy, USA, Norway, Sweden, Canada to name a few.
5. Important musicians including Elvis, Beatles members & Buddy Holly have been photographed wearing Omega watches including the Constellation range.

9. The Geneva Line, created in 1953, was made as an homage to our workshops in Geneva where OMEGAs best regulators were working. The line was finally discontinued in 1979 as the law in Geneva stipulates that a brand must have a presence in the canton of Geneva to include the word Geneva or any variation of on the dial.
10. Omega has four main watch families today that are well known to everyone interested in the brand: Seamaster, Speedmaster, Constellation and De Ville.
