OMEGA De Ville, Tresor Gold c. 1956
This beautiful gold De Ville, manufactured in 1956, is a stunning example of vintage Swiss watchmaking with a number of novel hallmarks and innovations.
Hand-assembled by Omega in Bienne , the high-precision Calibre 491 automatic movement is their first example of a rotor-driven mechanism in a gentleman's-style watch. It has both anti-magnetic and shock-absorbent characteristics.
The movement in this watch is in very good condition with little to no signs of wear, having gone unused for decades before receiving a servicing detail in 2016.
The external casing is made of 18K Trésor gold and is also in remarkably good condition given the watch's age, while its signature bevelled silver dial identifies the watch as part of the Trésor range, with its inset minute markers and a small-seconds readout, parts of which are still used in contemporary Omega watches.
The watch retains all of its original components, including the silver dial surface.
IN STOCK – This vintage pre-owned watch is in stock. The watch is in good visual condition with some signs of wear (please consult photos for a detailed look), full working order and is packaged in a WatchObsession presentation box.
