An ex-display watch from a jeweller’s liquidation. It was never used but I am listing it as used since there are a couple of hairlines from replacing the battery and sitting all these years. Professionally inspected inhouse by Localtime, this is a lovely example of an Omega De Ville gold-plated dress watch watch with Ref. 195.0076.
The case measures 26.50mm or 28.50mm including the logoed crown at 3h. It is an all original condition and ready to wear or join your collection. Lovely creamy white dial and black hands and applied logo, all come together to create a classy dress watch. I have included many photos, including some macro shots I took just for fun. Its original strap deteriorated so I replaced it with a NOS black calf leather strap that I think matches it nicely.
As with all the watches I handle at Localtime, the BIN price includes a 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I include a written warrantee with my buy it now price and I always describe what I have changed, if anything, on the watch.
Extra: Try our Localtime Cordura canvas straps! High quality Cordura canvas in 8 colours [black, blue, brown, khaki, green, orange, red and yellow] and 4 sizes [18-20-22-24mm with a 2mm tapering] with ‘Lorica’ waterproof liner, Italian-made. The length is 90mm including the steel buckle by 120mm on the tail side. Thickness-wise, they start at approximately 4mm and thin down to 3mm. They have two ring-holders: a fixed one and a semi-floating one with fabric ‘belt’ to hold the tail, for a safer and more comfortable fit. They will be a very welcomed upgrade to the either ‘naked’ canvas [no liner] or the calf-lined canvas which are considered of a ‘simpler’ quality. A pair of good quality spring bars will accompany each strap. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401496392712. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.
