Item No. 6771
The Seamaster De Ville, showcasing both refinement and high function, was the most important Omega line from a sales perspective from the latter part of the 1960's into the 1970's.
Today's offering showcases this rare, classic and pleasing Seamaster De Ville with rare caliber 560 movement of which only 3,000 examples were made. These movements were split across nine models, making each in effect a "limited edition." The 560 was a movement made only for the U.S. market to cut down on import tariffs.
This beautifully restored example is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, crown, and even new-old-stock Omega crystal!
Its case presents as mint, and its dial has been professionally restored.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled the movement down to the last screw and cleaned and oiled it and installed a vintage new-old-stock Omega crystal. It is keeping incredibly accurate time.
'60's and early 70's Seamasters are great long-term buys as parts are readily available for their well-made movements, and they're not hard to service.
For the finishing touch we have installed a brand new genuine Teju lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Note: Published examples of similar watches can be found in Marco Richon's work Omega: A Journey Through Time, 2007, pg. 403.
