Living up to its name as one of the sophisticated "DeVille" models, it features a sleek case, royal blue, and uncommon transitional caliber 1325 quartz mechanism with quick-setting hour for easy changing of the time zone and date.
It is one of the early transitional quartz calibers of the era and has 15 jewels. It is also one of Omega "Accuset" models with push button crown for precision setting of the minutes and seconds.
It is fully Omega and presents in gorgeous restored condition. It has has a true expertly done restoration and presents as about a 9.7 out of 10. The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has just installed a new battery and performed any needed servicing on the watch.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
