Thanks for your response. I use the Omega Vintage site extensively. I have no doubt that the watch is real, but what I want to know is whether the dial is the original Omega design or whether it is a flight of fancy of some former owner. Unfortunately, the vintage site doesn't have pictures of the actual watches and I don't see any Connie with a dial like that elsewhere on the Omega site. I guess I wanted to know if anyone else has seen dials like that on Omega watches from that era.
