Opinion please...hope it is good! Suggested price range will be great
I vote for a quality redial. These dials had a natural lacquer that yellows with age and sometimes cracked.
Case is in nice condition, there are some marks on the lugs probably from an old Twist-O-Flex bracelet. The crown is correct. Band is vintage Omega replacement, as is buckle.

Please don't ask me for market values. I am a poor judge of those. This one will get expensive.
In honor of XVI Melbourne Olympic Games 1956
Would this possibly be one Omega redid?
repainted dial, too fat, little crater under the minute hand in foto 2, and this color of dial makes me vote for redial.
It's certainly a refinished dial - just a very good one. Even if those XVI's are stored away for years in a drawer the laquer at least yellows and most times crazes just a bit.
Oh no...would have try to get it if original!! What a shame
Not so bad if you want to wear it every day, though.
The price is original 555
If you meant $555, then grab it first and ask questions later.
I think he meant the original price from Omega in 1956 was $555.
refinished dial - well worn case back...
Don't think that's right. According to Desmond's article:
The $500 figure would have been for a top of the line Constellation, probably without the gold bracelet. Can't see the XVI selling new anywhere for more than the best Constellation.
Sorry I meant to say "the dial is refinished but the price the seller want is for original dial LOL"
My bad English
By the way he is asking around 5000USD
