Today's offering showcases this very handsome example of one of Omega's classic vintage gent's watches that presents in mint restored condition.
Living up to its name as one of the elegant and sophisticated "De Ville" models, it has an elegant ellipse case, stunning Tiffany turquoise blue dial, and automatic caliber 1012 movement used in Seamasters from the era.
The case is wonderfully full size for the style - it measures 32mm without the crown by 40mm long.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands and winding crown and has just finished a true expertly done restoration.
The case presents as mint, and the distinctive original Omega dial has been meticulously custom refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. The dial has just a lightly more muted tone than the photos suggest - like true Tiffany & Co. robin's egg blue.
As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has overhauled the movement.
We have also 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.
A half century old Omega that presents like new on the wrist!
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, Prince William, and one also 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.
