I picked up a wristwatch last weekend at the North-Coast Regional. As you can
see it is an OMEGA Constellation. What may not be readily apparent is an 18K
Solid Rose Gold Case. The condition is truly beautiful and the seller indicated
his belief the watch was from around 1962 or so. Any advice, information or
thoughts on this one would be appreciated. Tell us what you can. Thanks!!!
The beautiful case-back...
A close look at the dial...

I have one in stainless that I believe is exactly like it, and another very similar model in 14k yellow gold, with a threaded case back and a "pie pan" dial.
In my opinion, Constellations of that vintage (late 50s to early 60s) have some of the most classic case and dial designs ever created. They have good movements too, although they do suffer a bit from their non-jeweled rotors.

One of the single most elusive of these is the Rose Gold Version.
At some of the Germany auctions these things go for telephone numbers!
Seeing the pic prompted me to take a pic of my rose gold waltham. Nowhere in the class of the Omega, but still a nice rosey color.

I saw and handled an nearly indentical watch in a Knoxville watchmaker's shop just yesterday. It was classified as very good to excellent condition, and priced at $3500. A BEAUTIFUL watch, but not as pristine as Lindells here! High regards. Mark
