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 case, royal 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.
On the wrist it has the look of a solid gold Omega for a fraction of the price.
It has been meticulously restored with a true expert restoration. The printing on the restored dial could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration one of our watchmakers has disassembled the movement down to its last screw, replaced any overly worn parts with genuine Omega replacements, and cleaned and oiled it.
For the finishing touch it has been equipped 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 four decade old Omega that looks like new on the wrist!
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.
