An unusual men’s Omega De Ville, as you do not see the tank models nearly as often as the round cases.  Model reference 111.0101.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1969.

CONDITION

Some people may think this was designed as a ladies watch, but the model number starts 111 – those numbers mean it was designed as a men’s watch, manual wind without seconds, non water resistant.  So Omega always designated as a men’s watch, but know it could be worn by anybody.  The design is very distinct and not something you will find daily – the case curves from side to side subtly, and the hooded lugs mean there is no gap visible between strap and case.  The watch is still fitted with the original signed crown, and signed crystal – although the crown does have some wear to the logo.  Inside the 20 micron gold plated case is Omega’s calibre 620, a 17 jewel manual wind movement that is working well.  The case looks great from the top, but there is a few wear marks to the rear on the plating.  The dial is all original and has not been restored, but does show some marks.  The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
