Two more c cases one is Omega and the other IWC!!
Gorgeous! Quick question: what bracelet model is on the Omega? It's not the standard brick type ... I may want to find one for mine!
I had one for a while . . .
. . . but this '69 Seiko classic was lost in the mail - addressed to Austria, no less. I'd sent it to a friend without tracking; some ne'er-do-well in the Austrian postal service is now enjoying an unintended gift.
Then, a few months ago, one of my buddies gave me a C-case Waltham, which will be on its way to a watchmaker next week for servicing.
Nothing special, but it's the only 'C' currently in my collection.
Here is another C-Case , not mine but I it is for sale. What do you think about it? I have a similar one but this has different hands and no „OM“ at the dial. I don’t know if the dial is solid gold. But the warch is in 750 Gold (about 128 Grams and never polished). Unfortunately without papers\box.
It has a 561 movement. Is that right with that case/hands?
Thank you for helping!!
The best infos I can get. But nowhere this kind of hands/dial/movement constellation
561 is the non quickset date movement @reziprozi, these were used before the 564 as far as I understand it.
On the dial, I thought that the solid gold watches, with solid gold bracelets also had solid gold dials - if it's not marked as OM, I don't think it's a gold dial.
I think there are a few solid gold dials without OM. What do you think about the dial and the combination with the Cal.561 ?
I don't really have a view I'm afraid... more research required... which I'll leave to you if you're looking to buy @reziprozi
Thank you my friend. I am searching..and Desmond‘s Blog seems to be a great info source. Otherwise I see some C Cases with those hands had been sold. But Desmond‘s Blog never mentioned such a combination.
A very similar / same one

They do seem to come up occasionally, but as you say, beyond the (considerable) work Desmond has put in, there isn't much out there in the way of information.
Even the pages of "A Journey Through Time", don't contain much information on these C-Cased models.
the seller is very trustful and first owner of the watch....I believe him. The watch was never polished and the dial is solid gold without „OM marks“. Also in this thread there is on the first page the same case/dial/hands combination. And because there are some watches online with the same combination and a good story/ history—-> I think this is a legit combination of the 1970‘s C Cased Constellations.
It is my understanding that the OM dial is referred to as a Sigma dial. A Sigma dial has gold hands and indexes. There is an interesting article in Hodinkee .
Thank you for posting. Great infos.
The seller guaranteed that the dial is solid gold. So I come to the conclusion that there is no OM mark if the hands are not gold. therefore you have to recognize gold through the glass
Also a gold dial without „OM“
The watch posted is mid 60s not 70s and do turn up with dauphine hands and that crown style.
An OM dial is solid gold
A sigma dial has gold furniture
There are lots of solid gold Connie dials without OM on them.
However, it may be the pics but the one in question just doesn’t look like gold, they’re usually quite obvious.
A look at the back of the dial would confirm or not
I had a look at cousins but couldnt find anything at all, any other suggestions UK side? Otto Frei doesn't seem to stock them either!
Seems like they have gone from In stock to restricted now
This means they become mythical and highly priced.
This was mine. I sold it a few months ago to buy a PP Connie.
