    Yes, I know, medallion & other issues. I've seen a few with the same configuration of fonts on the dial. Is that re-dial or original?

    Thanks for reeling me in. I will pass on this one.

    I'm only a lurker usually, but I have to agree with cincindela that you should atleast look at the listings pictures before posting a new thread about a piece of complete trash - it just wastes space and everyones time :eek: :eek::eek:

    The dial looks to be original, or at least a correct Omega dial for a C-case, but I don't like the rest of that watch. Pass.

    I never seen one like this - is the Omega logo and the "Constellation" script on the wrong sides of the dial? :thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    It's what we call a transition piece. At the end of the 751's reign they started doing the dials like this. In a year or so Omega would begin using the 1021 instead and that would be the normal position for the script, but the day & date would have a divider between them instead of being in one window.

    My humble apology to you and the rest of the forum, for a perception of wasted time and space . I will put the brakes on posting threads only after a more thorough look at the listing. Learning is a difficult lesson sometimes.:whistling:

    I wouldn't worry too much, if its a piece you're seriously considering buying there's nothing wrong with checking in. What might be easier though is if you're looking for a C-Case, make one thread outlining what you're looking for and then as you find items you want looked at, post the link to the ebay listing as a reply in that thread, and keep using that thread until you make your purchase :)

    Go back to lurking and give M a break, we ALL learn by looking and discussing.

    This one brought up an interesting and useful discussion about the dial, regardless of the condition of the watch.

    It's not really time wasting because any member/moderator can put in as much or as little time as they want with any thread. That being said there are no short cuts trying to understand vintage omegas better - it really starts in the case of vintage constellations by reading desmond's blog and the articles there. Sometimes it takes repeat readings - to this day I still consult some of those files for pictures of watches and a few clarifications here and there. I think it is also helpful to tell us what you think of the piece and give us your analysis rather than just a quick here's a link what do you think about this because in that case the replies could be equally brief ("that's junk - ignore") and not be of much use to all concerned.

    The other thing is every one of these threads ends up here forever and searchable from google, so future people looking for C-Case connies, lets say someone wants a Ref 168.029 Constellation Cal 751 in the future, they're going to find this thread along the way. Thats why what Mike's talking about, asking about specific issues and giving your own take on the watch when you post it helps. Taking guesses and asking if your assumptions are right is fine, any bits that you're wrong on someone will correct, and if you're right they'll tell you that too.

    good info - in this case, I just became biased on favor of pre-transitional models!!

    Mike's comments are right on. There is nothing wrong with posting as many watches as you want, but I also wanted the OP to look over the watch and come to his own analysis for critic . Mistakes will be made (goodness knows I make plenty) but it is a great way to learn.
    With that said, who wants to offer explanations why there is no star on the dial of this watch? :D

    All points are well taken. Limiting threads will save reader time & forum space. Special thanks to all for defending my honor as a newbie to Vintage Omega & this forum:thumbsup:.

    You own more of them than some of the more experienced guys at this point lol

    BTW if you get a chance might be worth uploading the pics from the eBay ad to the site so that its still there after the listing is long gone ;)

    No need, just keep right on posting.

    Just part of the transitional dial makeup, with the dial reconfiguration really no place to put it.
