    Nice pair Gino. :thumbsup:

    In case anyone wants a short tutorial, there was also reference 2757 that came with a date window at 6. The other caliber that offered the date at 6 was the 355, made at the same time the 353 was. Usually the 2757 had the 355 and the 2627 had the 353 to my experience, but either combination was possible.

    The earliest models has the 4 sided rectangular windows as both Gino's watches do, but sometime in 1953 Omega started putting the semi-trapezoid shaped window on the dial. In place of the home plate shaped markers you could also see Arabic numbers at 3, 9, and 12.

    The bowler style crown as shown on Gino's white waffle dial was original to the very first examples. It was shortly replaced with the clover style crown. I don't think the decagon crown on his black waffle is original but just about any Constellation owner would be happy to trade a clover style for it. ;)

    I love the 2627 case, being screwback rather than snapback like the 2757 is a plus but the elegant shape of the lugs along with the stepped bezel make it a real standout

    Ciao Matteo :)

    Tks Dennis,

    the same my thought for the crown of the black one, it is certainly a Constellation style but yet if you look at Omega book by M. Richon , there are some Seamaster calendar (i.e. Deluxe OJ 2757 or CK 2989) showing a same style crown

    Here a better view of the crown..

    I've had dibs on one of Hoi's date-at-6 versions for years! It's been so long I don't remember exactly which one it was.
