This is a rare model that once existed for a short period of time, with Seamaster and De Ville listed together.

De Ville became an independent line in 1967 and was manufactured earlier in the mid-1960s.

The case size is 34mm, which is a small size that seems to be vintage. It can be said to be a boy's size by modern standards, so it is a size that can be used by both men and women.

The case material is Gold Filled (GF), which is made by crimping a gold layer on stainless steel. In the catalog at that time, it was written as Rolled Gold Case.

Only 5% or more of the total weight of gold used is marked with GF, which is 10 times thicker than gold plating (GP).

I feel that the condition is very good even considering the age.

The case structure is not a screw back but a one-piece case, so it is a little thin and has improved waterproof performance and durability.

The rounded windshield is a genuine OMEGA plastic windshield (plexiglass), and the date window part is like a double-glazed window, which is a rare design.

The dial is a silver dial with a sunray finish. Moderate secular variation can be seen.

The

movement is equipped with a self-winding Cal.565.

The

Cal.500 series movement is a fully rotary self-winding machine manufactured from the 1950s to the 1960s, which can be said to be the golden age of Omega.

This Cal.565 is the final system of the 500 series movement, and has a function to jump the calendar by pulling the crown.

The number of units supplied is large, and it is easy to obtain even if parts need to be replaced during future maintenance, so you can use it with confidence.

The bracelet comes with genuine rice bracelet 1503 No.12. This is also a GF specification like the case.

Although there is some peeling on the edges compared to the case, the overall condition is quite good.

Also, this watch comes with a warranty card at the time of sale. It says it was sold in 1967, and of course the serial number matches the watch.

It's very rare for an OMEGA watch of this age to come with a warranty.

Overhauled. 1 year warranty
