1978 Omega De Ville Vintage Mens Dress Watch with Bracelet - Stainless Steel


Item No. 8697

Today's offering showcases this gorgeously restored and uncommon example of one of Omega's classic vintage De Ville watches with original Omega bracelet.

Living up to its name as one of the elegant and sophisticated "De Ville" models, it has a classic case and elegant royal blue dial with an electric quality to it. Our photos couldn't begin to do it justice! Despite what the photos seem to suggest the dial is a rich royal blue.

Powering the watch is its fine original ultra-thin handwound Omega movement. For the bracelet Omega used a rare and interesting original free sizing design that can fit virtually any wrist.

It has all of its original Omega parts and has just finished a true expertly done restoration.

The case presents as mint. The dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. The original integrated band is in excellent condition.

As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has overhauled the movement. It is keeping very accurate time.

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

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

A more than four decade 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 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.
