An Omega Seamaster De Ville 14 carat gold filled gentlemans' automatic wristwatch, manufactured over 50 years ago in the 1960's. It is in great original un-restored condition. The case and factory original dial present very well on the wrist and the movement is running strongly and keeping time. It is signed four times, on the dial, case, crown and movement.
Vintage Omega watches are now rapidly increasing in value. And when you look at the price of a new Omega watches, which in my opinion lack both the style, quality and robustness of vintage timepieces, it is little wonder why. They are currently less than a third of the price of a new model, they should continue to run reliably for many years to come and the style is far superior in my view.
Dial: factory original, finished in satin silver and signed "Omega Automatic Seamaster De Ville Swiss Made". Applied gold coloured batons mark the hours. The hands are in very good shape and the crystal is clean and clear. There are some marks on the dial which I needed a loupe to see, not at all obvious in the photos or on the wrist but I mention them for the sake of accuracy.
Case: 14 carat gold filled, hallmarked between the lugs at one en. The case is in very good condition, measuring approximately 34 mm across, excluding the original signed crown and 41 mm from lug to lug. It is signed Omega on the inside of the back cover and bears the Omega Seamonster emblem on the back. The case shows the inevitable signs of responsible use over the years but no dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to point out to you.
Movement: I was unable to remove the movement as it comes out through the front of the case after removing the crystal and crown. When my watchmaker oiled and adjusted the watch he said it houses the correct Omega automatic movement. It is running strongly and keeping time.
Strap: fitted with a generic brown leather strap which attached to the watch it measures approximately 219 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
