    Hi All,

    I remember to read a discussion about a vintage constellation with a fluted bezel (not sure if it is the right term), something close to the new globemaster bezel but ... vintage.

    Anyone coule help me finding the reference of this watch?

    Thanks
    edit : not a C-Shape

    To the best of my knowledge you won't find a fluted bezel on anything earlier than the C-shapes. There is a fluted bezel on one of the references with an integrated bracelet, but that is late 60's - early 70's as well.

    I found this one on the web, but have already seen one larger (33 mm) with a slightly different bezel so maybe i am wrong and it was also a lady watch...

    You are right. The entire watch is not nice, but I was looking to the new globemaster and was thinking that I would love this watch being a vintage one ... So I was thinking about a nice constellation with this type of bezel...
    But it doesn't exit apparently...

    I know it's not what you are looking for, but here is the version I was talking about - IMO it looks great:

    Otherwise you could find an English produced Omega Seamaster in 9ct? They are for sale reasonably regularly and I believe I saw one on eBay a couple of days ago...

    Pink 18k Modern Globemaster/Constellation
    was around £14k in Dubai when I tried this on (not long been out then) -but come up on eBay at less than half that price nowadays
    Nice enough in it's own way - but not nice enough to turn me away from classic Connies

    -and now I look at it -how similar is that case to the Seamaster above!

    That's not fluted - it's brushed.

    I have a fluted C-shaped integrated two-tone with the awful day-date.

    Don't worry about it - not everyone likes the same thing, and that's what makes life interesting.

    Thanks. I enjoy wearing it.

    I zoomed waaaaaaaaay in on that ladies' watch and it is really hard to tell (at least to me) if it is fluted or brushed.
