    After wearing the U-Boat and SD, my wrist needs a break! Quite small but comfy!
    A little nick on the crystal just gives it more character:thumbsup:

    That's beautiful Erwin. Is it a 36 or 38mm? Either way, it's a stunning classic. :drool:

    It's neither, Roger. 34 mm I think. It's got the newer Omega leather but that's fine with me also.

    I've always liked that era of Constellations :thumbsup: That's the first dial I've seen like that :thumbsup:

    it's quite unique. I've looked around and can't find a similar dial with the circular design in the middle as well!

    thanks fellas!

    dang and double dang! might as well move this thread to the fake thread! I was told from a vintage forum that the watch could ( and some so sure ) that this is nowhere to be a real deal!
    I guess you win some, you lose some...although, I'm getting a second opinion with my vintage repair guy who overhauled my vintage sm!:banghead:

    Me too. That is a really cool and unique dial and I'm hoping it's real. I'd never seen one like it and it made me want to look harder at the Constellations! :banghead:

    So confusing....vintage forum experts judged through pics and unanimously voted fake. Watchservice ( 35 years experience ) popped the caseback and said it looks good to him ( athough he's not the same guy who restored my vintage SM :banghead:). I did some research and still skeptical:thinking:! In the meantime, I'll freeze the guillotine on this one!

    Third opinion...went to a local pawnshop where I usually buy music stuff! I know the owner and I know his passion with watches. He checked it out and concluded about it's authenticity. Even offered a few hundred bucks for it. So, it's a real deal! Maybe a redial but not too much of a big deal anymore! Good to know!
