Authentic Omega Constellation Quartz Chronograph
by Mike Smoller
I have what I have believed for many years to be a fairly uncommon, but authentic Omega Constellation Quartz Chronograph purchased (used) in the 1980's. It has a gold face with black bezel, stainless steel case with (presumably) 18K gold accents and a matching ss/18k link clasp bracelet (with all the appropriate Omega logos and engraving on the clasp).
Recently, I have wondered if it is indeed authentic because when I look at similar watches on eBay I see that mine varies from all others in one particular way. On the reverse of the case of my watch - outside the round removable back plate (which has the necessary astronomical observatory logo embossed) there are four (4) tiny slotted head screws behind each of the gold prongs which wrap the sides of the watch. I have not seen these screws on photos of other Omega Constellation watches. Does this mean that mine is a fake?
I just sent you a question but without photos about the authenticity of my Omega Constellation Chronograph Quartz purchased second hand in the 1980's. Here are the photos of that watch.
