The De Ville emerged as a model in its own right in 1967. It had a monocoque case which gave the designers more freedom to pursue elegant and fashionable lines.
This 1970 version is striking with a very slim bezel which promotes the dial beyond its real size. The reality is that it sits "big" on the wrist. A dress watch where the hours are represented by blacktopped raised blocks without any numerals. Matching slim baton hands with black inserts. Sweep seconds hand. It's a technical dial with each second broken down into 1/5th second indexes. Quick-set date at 3. Applied Omega logo in gold. Signed in black is Omega, Automatic, De Vill and Swiss Made. Omega logo etched into the centre of the acylic. Original crown.
The case is gold plated. There are no dents or scratches and there is no rub through of the gold plate on the front of the watch. On the edge of the two rear chamfers, the gold plate has worn through.
Comes with a used non-Omega gold-coloured bracelet.
