Another new and not Chinese vintage piece in scenic Peace River...

...that I've been fortunate enough to acquire due to recent benevolent fortunes.

The watch is a 1968 Omega Constellation "C" in solid 18k gold with a chronometer grade, 24 jewel Omega 564 movement.

My shots:











...and, again, like with the Datejust, because I don't want to open the case to get a movement shot, I'll provide Derek the seller's shot and again note that it was a pure pleasure dealing with him:



The strap is a buttery soft (stamped) horween shell cordovan from Ebay's thetimetraveler2012.

Ron, that's pure beauty, my friend. The strap really brings it into today's 'fashion market.' The observatory bas-relief is a classic and, unfortunately, a bit of a lost art, given today's focus on "the bottom line." Great photos, too. Thanks for sharing your amazing new acquisition with all of us...


(DAMN, I'm sooooo freakin' jealous...) Suspect

Thanks, Eddie. Believe me, I don't take any of my recent good fortune for granted, and I very much appreciate people's kind words regarding these pieces.
