1981 Omega "De Ville" Classic Retro Mens Quartz Watch, Quick-Setting Hour, Date - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5005

Today's offering showcases this retro mens Omega. Sold as part Omega's sophisticated DeVille line, the model has a very 80's look to it.

It appears to have been made for only for only a brief time... It is is fully Omega with a sapphire crystal. Powering it is a high-grade and somewhat unusual 17 jewel Omega quartz movement with quick-setting hour. Also interesting is the bracelet design.

It is fully Omega down to the original hands, winding crown, and even the waterproofing gasket and presents in true expertly restored condition. The original dial has been perfectly refinished. The printing is so perfectly done it could pass as Omega factory without heavy magnification.

The watch originally came with a mineral glass crystal which was notoriously easy to crack. We have upgraded it to a nearly unbreakable sapphire crystal of the same style.

Note: A little bit of lint and prop wax showed up in the photos. The photos don't do the condition justice.

On the wrist is presents as just short of like new.

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.

A cool three and a half decade old Omega that looks like new!
