    Dear Members

    After several research, i found only one vintage Omega Constellation Dial whitout the word 'Chronometer'. It is clearly state here that the dial has been repainted.

    So my question is about this missing word on constellation dial, is there any real dial without this word? especially a pie pan dial? If no, why this word has been forgotten during the redial (on this one...) ? And finaly if the pie pan dial has no chronometer printed (only Omega Automatic on the top and Constellation / Star on the bottom) , is it a redial for sure?

    Sorry for all those questions, i am trying to learn...

    Yes it is a refinished dial. This 168.004/10 (cant quite tell because I cant see the crown recess) should have both Officially Certified and Chronometer printed on the dial. some earlier models like the 14393 didnt have Officially Certified, but that was just a temporary thing.

    Cheers

    Very hard to establish the overall condition of the dial because of the photograph , but yes I would say it is.
