A 9ct gold Omega De Ville Date reference 166.5020 from 1969. An excellent example of a tried and tested favourite from the 1960s. Omega De Ville with a white dial with slight, even patina, gilt markers and straight, black hour, minute and central seconds, as well as the date function at 3 o'clock.
The De Ville is one of our favourite, classic 1960s vintage watches and one of our top classic vintage Omega sellers. Powered by the reliable Omega calibre 565 automatic movement and encased in a 34.4mm monocoque front loading case, its timeless design looks as good today as it would have in 1966.
Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.
