    Hi I just bought omega constellation from 1962 but I worry so it is fake. The stars on the back plate invisible. Thanks guys.

    It is not fake. Dial looks original to me.

    The crown has been replaced and the case has been very harshly polished. That is why you can only see some of the 8 stars that are supposed to be there.

    Hope this helps,

    The bezel should be gold, and it will not be easy to find one I imagine.

    Because the crown on your watch is not the original one. With respect to all the issues, I’d consider returning the watch if possible.

    If you can return it, I would do it. It's a really bad example of a Constellation, not even worth 500$.

    Oh man, that one's a mess, bezel isn't even for this case.
