    Hi OF,

    Offering up my 1966 Omega Constellation, reference 14902 62 SC with its BOR bracelet. Dog leg case with the dome dial - and a BEAUTIFUL dial it is! Case is beautiful as well, with nice defined lines and a very crisp medallion. Lots o' pics!

    Original crystal, signed, as can be seen in the last two pics. Some regular scratches - the only of note is what looks to be a crack from the inside of the crystal, that under a loop doesn't go all the way through. I opted not to replace and keep it original. Hard to capture, but can be seen right at the bottom by "Swiss Made"

    The case is really nice, showing off them sweet dog legs!

    The 1037 beads of rice with matching 570 end links is fantastic, with minimal wear on the clasp. Currently sized for my just over 6.5 inch wrist, and it’s loose on the closest clasp adjustment, so should fit up to a 7.5 inch wrist, or slightly more.

    Original hands in good shape, with average wear. The only thing of the note is patina on the seconds hand, hard to capture, but the final picture shows it best.

    Cal 561 is running well, winding and setting smoothly, but no service history. As always with vintage a fresh service is recommended for regular use:

    And here she be shinning in the garden this morning!

    No returns unless misrepresented and it will not be! I am a passionate collector who treats buyers the way I want to be treated when I'm the buyer. Have lots of feedback here to show that.

    I notice the serial number for the movement of this watch falls within the range 24,410,000 to 24,509,999, the series of 100,000 consecutive 551 and 561 movements that were given the “Especially Good Results” chronometer rating. What's not to like!

    I really appreciate you pointing that out, it sent me down an interesting research rabbit hole about those 100,000 movements. Very cool!

    Last bump for US members for a few weeks as I’ll be heading north. Come Thursday, it would be a much easier buy for Canadian members!

    Trip pushed back so this is still with me stateside. Currently on the wrist and keeping time beautifully within about 10 seconds a day!

    I definitely tried to price fairly, as always. Lower than comps I saw without the BOR bracelet… but let’s do a little drop and a bump for the long weekend.

    Now $1475 shipped!

    Wife to husband: That watch has to go!
    Husband to wife: You’re talking like my ex-wife!
    Wife to husband: I didn’t know you’d been married before!
    Husband to wife: I haven’t

    Agree!

    Seems like a nice deal for a Connie with bracelet.
