    Can anyone recommend any reference books worth purchasing on general vintage Omega watches and if possible a book specifically on Constellations.

    There is a great amount of information on the forum.......... knowledge is king..............::book::::book::::book::

    Journey Through Time is by far my favorite watch book. It's 100% worth finding a copy even though it is expensive.

    Agree, when I got mine they sent me the Italian version instead of English. I would have returned it but there is so little text that it didn't matter! The photos are really nice though.

    I looked for AJTT a couple weeks ago. It doesn't seem to be available anywhere, so I am guessing long out of print? I could not even find a used copy, even on ebay.

    Ring (phone) around your local Boutiques and ADs. That's where I got mine.

    +1 for Desmond's site. It's what inspired me to get my first Constellation, and now I have four of them.

    If that happens let me know as I will start buying more connies the second the first chat takes place. Look what has happened to speedmasters since the book came out.

    It took me months to track down my copy of AJTT. My awesome wife gave me "Omega Designs" and it was a good read.
