Today's offering showcases this prime restored example of one of Omega's retro vintage watches. Living up to its name as one of the sophisticated "De Ville" models, it features a retro style case with waterproof style screw back, strong black dial, very fine automatic Omega movement, and desirable original Omega "beads of rice" bracelet.
