The wristwatch showcased in today's offering is a beautiful example of one of Omega's classic vintage mens midsize watches.
Living up to its name as one of the elegant and sophisticated "De Ville" models, it has an elegant case, striking green "vignette" dial that fades to black, and hassle-free Omega quartz movement.
Note that the green in the dial showed up quite a bit brighter under the photography lights than it does in person. In person it looks like a deeper green.
Its movement is an Omega quartz caliber 1330 mechanism with quick-setting hour for easy changing of the time zone with original Omega "Accuset" push button crown for precision setting of the minutes and seconds.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands and winding crown and presents in gorgeous restored condition - about a 9.7 out of 10. The dial has a meticulous expert refinishing - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new aftermarket leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment. Please let us know if you would like a green strap or a different strap installed.
Please inquire if you would like photos of the inside.
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.
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.
