Today's offering showcases this unique, original, and uncommon model of one of Omega's classic vintage mens watches.
Living up to its name as one of the elegant "De Ville" models, it has a sophisticated sideways ellipse shaped case, classic dark champagne Roman dial, and mineral glass crystal.
Note that the dial is less yellow or mustard in person than the photos suggest - it is a nice dark champagne.
Powering the watch is its fine original caliber 625 ultra-thin handwound Omega movement.
It is fully Omega down to the original dial, hands, winding crown, and even crystal! It is in pleasing condition and presents beautifully on the wrist.
Its dial is untouched and shows only very slight signs of aging, barely visible with the naked eye. One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.
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 C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and 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.
