Omega Chronometer Constellation ST 398.0856 from 1980 (Box and Paper)
For sale is an Omega ST 398.0856.
Luxury sports watches with integrated lugs and bracelet have been gaining popularity in recent years with history tracing back to watches like this Omega ST 398.0856. The overall watch design of this watch screams “Gérald Genta”, with similar aesthetic as the Royal Oak and the Nautilus.
Matching the sports theme, brushed finishing has been adopted throughout the top of the watch except for the bevelled edges of the octagonal case to create depth when viewed from the top.
Measuring 33.5mm in case width, the watch wears well even on larger wrist thanks to the integrated bracelet.
The watch is then adorned with a textured charcoal grey dial with high polished multifaceted indices.
This masterpiece is then finished off with the chronometer graded Omega 1333 calibre. The function with the crown using this calibre allows quickset hour (for converting to different time zone) while the button situated at 2 allows pausing of seconds hand and quickset advancement of seconds hand.
The watch is in mint condition other than common hairline scratches on the original bracelet and case. The watch dial has light aging on the very edge between 11 to 12 but it is well hidden when viewed in person. The crystal is free from any signs of usage.
The watch comes with its original guarantee booklet and box.
