Today's offering showcases this gorgeously restored and uncommon model of one of Omega's classic vintage mens midsize watches. It was made only from 1976 to 1978.
Living up to its name as one of the elegant "De Ville" models, it has a sophisticated TV style case, strong black dial, and sapphire crystal.
Powering the watch is its fine original caliber 625 ultra-thin handwound Omega movement.
By today's standards it is a unisex size, well suited for someone with smaller wrists.
It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, and winding crown! It presents in true expertly restored condition. The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. The case presents as mint and the movement is just short of near pristine.
As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has just serviced the movement, which continues to run at very accurate levels.
For the finishing touch we have installed a new leather band making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
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.
