Highly Underrated

I picked up a new (from an AD at a big discount) Constellation that in my opinion is highly underrated timepiece and generally unloved. At one time the flagship of the Omega line, you don't see many of these in the on line forums taking a backseat to Seamasters, AT's Speedy's, etc. This is Omega's entry to compete with the Rolex Datejust. I love the Datejust, but considering price in the equation, it is a tough call. I purchased it with the bracelet, (I am on the fence with their bracelet), but with their strap and deployment, it is amazing. A very technological piece of horology.... Please pardon my amateur cell phone picture, it does not do the timepiece justice.

It's a beauty. Fits you very nicely, and looks dynamite on that strap

Thanks guys...

I appreciate the kind comments. Forgot to mention she is super accurate, running about 2 seconds fast a day. Great timekeeping.
