WOW! It is very, very hard not to get excited by this rare and special Omega De Ville from the 1970s in new old stock condition. It still has its original, blue protective coating! This model 155.007 has the most spectacular and almost futuristic design. Its original, electric blue dial with baton markers and stick hands make this watch a truly individual and beautiful timepiece.
We love the rectangular, tank-shaped, unpolished, stainless steel case and its original, link bracelet. Inside is Omega's automatic caliber 684, fully serviced by us and running strongly.
A rare stainless steel Omega and a wonderful tank-shaped timepiece, complete with its original steel new old stock Omega link bracelet.

Founded by Louis Brandt in 1848, Omega started out as La Generale Watch Co., an unassuming, but international business. It wasn't until 1885, when the company had been taken over by Louis' sons, that the first mass-produced caliber, the Labrador, was released. By 1903, the company had renamed itself Omega and only two years later were they the official timekeepers at many sporting events across Switzerland. Omega stepped onto an international stage in 1932 as the official timekeepers at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the first of over 20 Olympic Games. Omega were one of the 12 companies, now known as the Dirty Dozen, commissioned to produce watches for the British Military during the Second World War. One of Omega's most iconic watches, the Seamaster, was introduced in 1948 to celebrate their 100th anniversary. Over 70 years later, it is still one of Omega's best selling watches. Omega made headlines in 1962 when Wally Schirra wore the Speedmaster as part of NASA's first crewed spaceflight programme, making the Speedmaster the first watch to enter space. It was only a few years before the Speedmaster became the official chronograph for the American space missions and was worn by Buzz Aldrin as well as the Apollo 13 crew. Omega are still involved with NASA and have been instrumental in creating vital pieces of equipment for space exploration. Omega's reputation continued to soar in the 1990s with Omega Seamaster worn by Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. As well as post-1995 James Bonds, Omega has been worn by the likes of Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy, Prince William, Rory McIlroy, Ringo Starr, Michael Phelps, Cindy Crawford and George Clooney.
This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.
What we think
Well if we weren't running a business then we would keep all of our watches! And this would be a keeper for sure. A-class design and an excellent example of a tried and tested favourite from the 1970s Omega's experimental De Ville range.
