Omega debuted their De Ville series - like this recently serviced example here - in the 1970s, and features a refined silver dial, with applied indexes and black inserts. The stainless steel case features a one piece body, with striations that radiate outwards away from the dial.
Omega was officially founded in 1903, and its watches were the choice of NASA and the first watch on the Moon in 1969. Omega has been the official timekeeping device of the Olympic Games since 1932.
James Bond has worn it in films since 1995; other famous Omega wearers, past and present, including John F. Kennedy, the UK’s Prince William, George Clooney, and Astronaut Buzz Aldrin – and do we really need to note where Buzz wore his?
This Omega comes with an osterich strap, nylon NATO strap, springbar tool, and Pelican travel case.
