    Back in 2017 I had it serviced by Omega but they were unable to do the Extraction of Archives, the boutique said it might have been due to a loss of some records due to a fire a few years ago? The information they were able to provide me was the following

    Caliber: 1332
    Case Reference Number: 196.0175

    I can get more pictures tonight if that would be of any help. Thanks!

    Priceless to you no doubt due to the connection with your grandfather but otherwise not a particularly exciting model I am sorry to say. Quartz movement full 14K gold with fixed bracelet from Omega's dark ages of the early 1980s. Would likely fetch only a little more than the (not inconsiderable) scrap gold value at sale, but that would still be well into 4 figures. I am sorry for the rather pessimistic appraisal but its a reality that this kind of watch is not hugely in favour with collectors or buyers.

    Thanks! Yeah, definitely way more sentimental value to me than anything. I guess I was hoping to find a little more out about the model, year of manufacture, etc.

    Basically all I can know is that (from the dial) it is a Constellation and the service gave me a Caliber and Case Reference Number. My main issue is that when I try to even search on Omega's website I get a grand total of nada. Any help is greatly appreciated!
