1978 Omega De Ville Vintage Ladies Handwound Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 9197

Today's offering showcases this striking example of one of Omega's vintage handwound ladies watches.

Living up to its name as one of the elegant and sophisticated "De Ville" models, it has an elegant "TV" shaped case, beautiful Tiffany & Co. robin's egg blue dial, and fine Omega handwound movement.

It also has a rare and interesting original Omega bracelet that can be freely sized to fit any virtually any wrist size.

It has all of its original parts down to its original sapphire topped winding crown and has just finished a true expertly done restoration. It presents in gorgeous condition - a 9.7 out of 10.

Its case presents as gorgeous mint. Its original Omega dial has been meticulously custom refinished in a Tiffany & Co. blue color - the printing could pass as Omega factory done even under low magnification.

As part of the restoration, its original movement has just been freshly serviced by a Master Watchmaker. We have also timed it on a machine that spins the watch in all directions simulating it being worn - it is keeping very accurate time.

For the finishing touch, we have painstakingly detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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.

Sought after by serious collectors and worn on the wrists of celebrities Cindy Crawford, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Wie and any woman desiring to wear a world-class watch, Omega's timepieces rank among the very fine luxury watch brands in the world.
