Today's offering showcases this classic retro Omega De Ville in gorgeous restored condition.
It lives up to its name as one of the elegant and sophisticated "De Ville" models. It has a classic retro case with sunburst finish, royal blue dial, and automatic caliber 1000/1002 movement from the 10xx series used in Seamasters from the era.
Its monocoque - or one-piece - Omega case when new achieved high water resistance ratings by not having a separate case back.
It has all original parts. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration.
The case presents as just short of perfect mint. The dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration, a Master Watchmaker has just fully overhauled the movement. Amazingly after about half a century, it continues to run strong and true, keeping time on par with a brand new Omega chronometer in our testing position.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new calfskin leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, and Ernie Els Omega timepieces rank with Rolex and other of the world's fine Swiss firms.
