Serviced March 2019. The watch movement uses the precise Quartz cal 1342 (this is the engine of the watch). The watch has been serviced and hand cleaned. This is good to go for years.
Please ensure you are comfortable with the size as vintage watches are smaller than today's standards.
Overall please remember this is a vintage / used Omega watch but as you can see this is in very good vintage 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. Naturally the box is looking a bit tatty so please manage your expectations.

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 and date . 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.

The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in good condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.

9. The Geneva Line, created in 1953, was made as an homage to our workshops in Geneva where OMEGAs best regulators were working.

11. OMEGA SEAMASTER DE VILLE: The Omega De Ville was introduced into the Seamaster range in 1963. It was considered by Omega to be the ultimate dress-watch, the personification of elegance, but retaining the country sport mantra so eagerly aspired to by certain echelons of society in the 1960s. Although subtle and understated, at its heart remained a very sturdy accurate sports movement in a unique one-piece case.
12. The Omega Seamaster was introduced in 1948. The De Ville version of the Seamaster featured a front-loading case where the access to the movement was gained through the front of the watch rather than the back. The Seamaster De Ville was available from 1963.
