    Hello !
    I am new on this forum and don't know much about redials, I read several threads and I understood that "T swiss made T" seem to be a sign of a fake vintage watch. For the rest, I think it's hard to tell !
    I am very interested in this Omega constellation, can you please tell me if it's genuine as I think it is ?
    I only have one picture. Thank you !!

    I cannot tell you much from only one out of focus picture. Here are some observations which may lead you in the right direction.

    1. Watches made prior to 1963 generally did not have the “T” for tritium on the dial.

    2. There was a period of time from 1959 to 1964 where Omega did not use the words “Officially Certified” on every Omega Constellation dial.

    3. There seems to be an overlap period here.

    We would need to see the case reference number, which is engraved inside the case, the caliber number from the movement and the serial number of the movement to even begin to give you an opinion on this watch.

    I can tell you that the crown has been replaced at some point.

    Hope this helps a little.
