With original full length bracelet, this Omega De Ville has the quartz 1332 calibre movement.  Model reference 396.0886


From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1980.


In the 70’s and 80’s there was often little difference between Omega ranges.  The Constellation, Seamaster and De Ville ranges used the same movements and there was not always much to differentiate them.  Inside this stainless steel case is a high quality 17 jewel calibre 1332 that has an hour hand that can be set independently to the minute hand, which is ideal for travellers.  That feature also allows you to quick set the date.  To ‘hack’ the watch or advance the seconds and minutes hands you use the pusher at 2.  We will install a brand new battery before sending the watch out to the new owner.  The dial does have patina all around the edge, which is more noticeable in certain lights than others, but this is why the watch is cheaper than other Omega men’s watches we have.  The flat glass is scratch and chip free.  The bracelet is full length and requires no special tools to adjust, and it has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath.

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

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon.  By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
