A refresher on jaw's watch: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=29726&p=309376&hilit=Omega+Constellation#p309376
Cut to today - tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. Instead of wracking our brains to figure out what each other likes, we simply decided to point the car toward beautiful Huntington in Long Island and two of our favorite stores - Time Source Jewelers, which I insist has one of the most incredible selections of pre-owned watches anywhere in the lower 48 (especially Rolex; it's where I got the blue Datejust), and a huge gift store, Sedoni Gallery, which stocks a lot of craft jewelry she likes. I got her something (a really nice necklace), and this is what she got me):
I couldn't resist the deal, or the watch. Sure, it's not mint - bit of paint missing at the six, the ding in that area pretty much far too small to see when the watch is on the wrist - but it's legit, and it's certainly wearable. No box, no papers, no links - but kismet. When I tried it on, it fit perfectly, no sizing required. It's as if it was sitting there waiting for me.
Stats and figures:
Omega 368.1201 Automatic Constellation circa 1990s
Omega Caliber 1120 Automatic Chronometer (23 jewels)
36mm (less crown)
Stainless steel original band, sliding clasp hinge
38.5 length, 10mm thick
Ivory honeycomb dial, chrome tick marks and hands
A nicer anniversary gift I've never received. Again, it was a stellar deal, no haggling, nice people, great service. Always lusted after jaw's Connie, and though this one has some "character," it's just fine by me.
