    I think I have four versions of this, including one like this. Also, it may be the photo, but that doesn't really look like a pie-pan dial.

    Nice watch! I have an FC and absolutely love it. Planning on another. Now, If only they would get rid of the "heartbeat" watches that look like they are from target and produce a female manufacturer.

    Yah, it's the photo (not the best) but the pie-pan is not as pronounced as others and the lay out hides the pan definition which for me is a good thing as I'm not crazy about the heavy pie-pan look. When the dial was off the case you can see the pie ridges and raised dial.

    Can I play too? [​IMG] And the original correct 10-sided crown, which I am still trying to find someone to replace the gasket within for me... [​IMG]
    I am sorry, but there are a few things off with your watch. You may or may not be aware of this. I understand that this is a heirloom and hence there will be a degree of personal sensitivity around it - so I have placed my comments below in "spoilers". These comments may be helpful at the very least to those who are interested in dipping their toes into the world of vintage Omega Constellation Pie Pans, also known as Connies to the (what else) Connie-seurs, heh.
    There was a "shallow pan" variation of the pie pan (case ref 2652), but yours looks off for a few reasons. The dial printing fails MOY. Google "Constellation MOY" if you don't know what this means. The hash marks look a little strange, can't put my finger on why but my gut tells me they are too long/bold. The lume has been added/redone, clearly. Constellation font looks off. The crosshair is off centre - look at its alignment to the bold hashes at 3 and 6 o'clock. The crown is more associated with Seamasters, though I think there were a few Constellations with it. Not your model though. No "Swiss Made" on dial.
