This example has a few noteworthy features that are worth mentioning. First off, the dial is of the non-lume variety with applied hour markers with onyx, which gives it nice contrast against the dial. The Omega logo and name as well as the star at six o'clock are beautifully applied. The case features really nice shaped lugs with a slight bevel that has remained intact over the years. On the caseback is a gold medallion featuring the constellation logo and stars.
This Constellation is in great overall, attractive condition. The case is strong with small signs of wear. The bevel on all the edges of the case, especially on the lugs, are clearly visible. The Observatory caseback emblem and stars are clearly visible and have a bit of patina.
The dial is clean with just small signs of patina. The hands and hour markers are in good condition and have developed some patina.
