1979 Omega De Ville Vintage "Boys" Unisex or Mens Midsize Retro Ultra Thin Ellipse Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 6338

Today's offering showcases this gorgeous original and uncommon model of one of Omega's classic vintage midsize "boys size" watches.

Living up to its name as one of the elegant "De Ville" models, it has a sophisticated ellipse shaped case, classic silver dial, and sapphire crystal.

Powering the watch is its fine original caliber 625 ultra-thin handwound Omega movement.

It is a unisex size, well suited for someone with smaller wrists.

It is fully Omega down to the original dial, hands, winding crown, and even Omega crystal! It is in gorgeous condition - about a 9.6 out of 10. The dial presents as mint and the movement is just short of pristine.

A Master Watchmaker has just serviced the movement, which continues to run at very accurate levels.

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.

This model's entry in Omega's vintage database can be found here.

Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and 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.
