    Hi as I am new member and less experienced than all off you guys I have question about my recent buy.Ok so I have got omega constellation automatic from 1992 with 1111 calibre all boxes and paperwork. Watch serial nr suggest that it was manufactured in 1987 and sold in 1992 which is fine since some of them been on the shelf for 3-5 years before being sold.My question is whether it is a collectable pice and if is there any interest on the market with them.
    The best part now.watch is new unattached and never worn apart from obviously winding by my self over last couple of days it keeps the time within +4 sec a day which is as per factory info what's when new, keeps the power reserve of 38h and got original sticker on the back as per photos 18k gold on original unattached strap buckle all as per new what do you think?????? Thx

    You'll need to add pictures to get any specific info, but I don't believe 80's/90's Constellations are particularly collectible.

    Sorry, your pics weren't showing when I wrote my reply.
    What do you want to know?
    My interest is more 50's-70's so I'm not up to speed on watch from this period, but I don't think it's worth a huge amount. It's too old to be modern but too new to be vintage.

    Have you tried searching eBay completed listings to see what this model sells for, then add a premium for the condition? That will tell you the market.

    I'd say certainly towards the lower amount. I may be wrong, but I just don't think there's a huge demand for these.
    If you're selling, just try listing on eBay in a no reserve auction and you'll find the true market price.

    Likely the fact that it needs a service (maybe a decade or so overdue) will also impact the potential sales price.

    Normally yes but this one just sit in the box as not worn and as it is automatic no wear should accour i check it is within the spec of the new watch and dials still glow in the dark if worn it would not be possible.

    You asked a simple question: "Is there any interest in the market on them?"
    I mean, there is market action because you bought it and you are part of the interest in the market. I'd just say it's not a watch that gets a lot of attention around here. Similar to @Davidt It is too new to be old and too old to be new.
    These sell on ebay all the time. If you don't need the money, perhaps let it sit in the box or drawer again for another decade (or two or three) and maybe the watch will be a bit more sought after. If you bought it to sell it I think you'll have a hard time finding a buyer from these corners...

    Even if not run it needs a service as the lubricants will degrade.


    Odd this watch comes up now. A rumor was brought up at the LA G2g that this year will have a New York limited edition like the Venice edition last year and we where all scratching our heads on what the link to NY is for Omega... well here it is.

    It will definitely need a service as worn or not, the oils/lubricants in the movement will have dried up over the years.

    1 - To my knowledge no... I meet a lot of collectors, and I've not met anyone with a 1980s/1990s constellation collection.

    2 - See above. Just because something is uncommon does not make it rare, just because it's rare doesn't make it desirable, and just because it's rare, doesn't make it valuable.

    If you bought it to wear, enjoy it... if you bought it thinking you were going to make a big profit, you may be in for a surprise.
