One good thing about the festive season is that it provides an opportunity to say thankyou. And I would like to thank the many hundreds of visitors who took the time in 2009 to contact me with ideas, pictures, leads and questions or simply to give their thanks for this blog.
The intent behind this site has remained the same since its inception, and that was, and is, to help those attracted to vintage Omega watches have a pleasant experience when acquiring one or more examples of this venerable brand. The key to a pleasant experience is knowledge that will allow collectors to make astute acquisitions. Knowledge is indeed power, and the more we know about the vintages we collect the more we are able to avoid the traps and pitfalls inherent in a globalised vintage watch market.
Since 2006, I have built up this Omega Constellation resource to the point where I often think I may have exhausted the subject! But then, someone comes along with a question that is not answered and it provides the impetus to research and document yet another facet of this magnificent family of watches.
So, I depend on you for ideas and indeed input. Thankyou for coming through so many times!
In 2010 I intend to extend coverage of the brand to the neo-vintage Manhattan models and other post-crisis models including reviewing the calibres that powered them. I also propose to complete an essay on Constellation boxes of the vintage period, a longer piece on Omega Grand Luxe Constellations, an essay on the largely undocumented calibre 711 and 712 Constellations and a post on Non-Certified Constellations of the 1970s. So if you have examples, advertisements or other information to share on any of the above, please do be forthcoming.
I wish you an appropriately excessive Yuletide and may 2010 be a memorable collecting year for you - for all the right reasons!
