OMEGA Vintage Mens 1977 De Ville Date Gold Quartz Gents Watch CAL 1342 + BOX

This is an attractive and iconic vintage Omega De Ville. The watch uses the precise Quartz Cal 1342 movement.

It's vintage so naturally it comes with some minor imperfections. Sold as used / vintage but in good condition. Please study the photos as naturally this makes up part of the description. I hand polished this for a good hour, as per photo the results looks pretty good

This has a lovely new good quality thick tan / brown leather strap which gives it a modern twist. The buckle is gold plated which obviously compliments the watch nicely. I can swap the strap for a different colour if you prefer such as black or a darker brown.

The watch box seen in the pictures will be supplied. Naturally this will help protect the item in transit. I will post very fast.

How to set the time:

Omega push button. Those who are not familiar with this I can send instructions. You simply pull out the crown to set the hour . For the minute hand you need something like a ball point pen / bic and press the push button located on the crown for at least 7 seconds. You release then hold again immediately. You will notice the minute hand sweeping around. You simply release release once the minute hand reaches the desired time.

To drum up interest I am shipping Worldwide for this one. Any collector out there I'm sure you would agree what a rare find this is. I can dispatch within 24 hours of payment being received. You will receive very fast.

Any questions drop me a mail.

8. Omega "Pie Pan" is used a term in the industry /collectors to describe the style dials from other models. The dial that has the hour/minute markers placed in a concentric ring that slopes down at a constant angle i.e, not rounded, from a raised flat center, and that the center is often a contrasting color or tone. This design usually commands a premium price and seen in the Constellation & De Ville models.
9. The Geneva Line, created in 1953, was made as an homage to our workshops in Geneva where OMEGAs best regulators were working.
