    The watch has been polished, but the dial and hands are original. The crystal and crown are not Omega, but I can include an Omega Clover crown and will try to supply a crystal if you can give me the dimensions. There are some minor dents and scratches here and there shown in the pictures.The back medallion is in great shape, and the watch was just serviced and runs great. The dial has some patina, and it oddly reminds me of a map. :p It takes an 18mm strap, and is ready for a new owner. Sold as is and with no returns.

    Not in the market for one but wanted to say this is a good watch to have in a vintage omega collection and Kyle is a trustworthy seller.

    Nuts, I was hoping this would be the white waffle Globemaster. :whistling:

    But Mike is right about Kyle being an honest seller. :thumbsup:

    If I didn't already have a similar watch, and just made a large purchase, I'd be all over this one.

    Highly recommended to any Constellation collector!

    I have a couple of impending purchases, otherwise I'd be all over this. Hope it stays in the family though.

    I really hate to let this one go, but I really need the funds. :( I'm asking $800 shipped in the U.S., I figured I'd post it here first. There is a great article here by Desmond on why it's a pretty special model.

    The watch has been polished, but the dial and hands are original. The crystal and crown are not Omega, but I can include an Omega Clover crown and will try to supply a crystal if you can give me the dimensions. There are some minor dents and scratches here and there shown in the pictures.The back medallion is in great shape, and the watch was just serviced and runs great. The dial has some patina, and it oddly reminds me of a map. :p It takes an 18mm strap, and is ready for a new owner. Sold as is and with no returns.

    To be totally candid, I would love to acquire this. But, right now I have a Blancpain being serviced (that's a story for another day) & not certain of the final cost. In addition, given that I've made recent Omega acquisitions, I'm gonna need to cool my jets for awhile & replenish the piggy bank. I too hope the watch goes to someone here. :thumbsup:

    Kyle, I really like this. Once I get my Blancpain back from service, I'll be in a better position to know if I can afford it. :unsure:
