Today's offering showcases this gorgeous condition and uncommon model of one of Omega's classic vintage midsize "boys size" watches.
Living up to its name as one of the elegant "De Ville" models, it has a sophisticated retro TV style case, royal blue dial, and sapphire crystal.
Powering the watch is its fine original caliber 625 ultra-thin handwound Omega movement.
It is a unisex size, well suited to someone with smaller wrists.
It presents in gorgeous condition. The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. Originally, the case top would have been gold plated.
A Master Watchmaker has just serviced the movement, which continues to run at very accurate levels.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
