Today's offering showcases this striking example of one of Omega's classic vintage gent's De Ville watches.
Living up to its name as one of the upscale "De Ville" models, it features a sophisticated case, classic silver dial, and very fine automatic Omega movement.
It is an uncommon model that featured an automatic movement in a rectangular - most often automatic movements were only put in round cases. Despite it's low profile, because of its indirectly driven minutes and seconds, space was left in the center for a rugged rotor bearing, which allowed Omega at times to fit the movement in the thinner rectangular cases.
The dial features a very cool expertly handpainted picture of the Disney character Pluto, Mickey Mouse's charming dog.
Powering the watch is its original caliber 1002 automatic movement with quick-setting date. It is one of the early 10xx series of movements that powered many of Omega's watches from the era including Seamasters and was even worked into a chronometer version.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands and winding crown. It presents in true expertly restored condition. The original dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. And the perfectly custom hand painted Pluto gives it a distinctive look.
It has just been fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker including installing a new mineral glass crystal.
Its movement is very clean and is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, Prince William, and one graced the wrist of President John F. Kennedy. Omega has been the official timekeeper for 21 Olympic Games and is the official chronometer of NASA.
