Omega Constellation Question!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am new to the forum so my deepest apologies if this is in the wrong place.

 

I've recently purchased an Omega Constellation. I've been a long time lover of this watch and finally took the plunge. I'm going to take it for a little service in the coming days, but wondered if any of you wonderful horologist types could tell me about it? I know there are so many variation's on the constellations

 

Thanks!

Nice one... looks like a 1990's watch at a guess.

The made these in steel,.gold or a few versions of steel and gold.

In between the links can be gold, steel or like yours which I describe as gold end caps.

In the 2000s they altered the bezel so it was no longer flat but more bulbous.  I prefered this kind as it is slim and goes under a cuff well.

@Daveyboyz Thanks For your comment!! 

 

I would have guessed around 90's as well but its nice to hear someone else thinking the same as me. 

 

It's why I was waiting to find one like this for the same reasons as yourself - I much prefer this kind of constellation because I just find it really subtle and tasteful an as you say it fits under a cuff so well. I wear a lot of suits for work too and it's just a really nice compliment to the day to day clothes I wear.

 

Thanks for helping flesh out my understanding :)

@Josh Healey Looks like a DB 396.1080 with thermo-compensated quartz calibre 1441 (date only) which Omega claimed were good for +/- 10 seconds a year

Was introduced in 1987
