Today's offering showcases this very handsome example of one of Omega's classic vintage gent's watches that presents in mint condition.
Living up to its name as one of the elegant and sophisticated "De Ville" models, it has an elegant case, luxurious gold dial, and automatic caliber 1012 movement used in Seamasters from the era. The case has a full size width - it measures 35mm without the date, about the same width as a Rolex Datejust.
It has the look of a solid gold Omega for a fraction of the cost.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands and winding crown and presents as mint condition. The dial is original and mint. The top plating on the case may have previously been redone.
Our watchmaker has just freshly serviced the serviced the movement. The watch continues to keep "as new" virtually chronometer grade time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
