OMEGA De Ville  Ref. 511.0512 Tank 

 

Here we have a rare OMEGA De Ville dresswatch. A wonderful vintage watch with a classic and a simple watchdesign. This beautiful WRISTCLASSIC comes with gold/steel case in great condition with sharp edges and almost no signs of use. 

 

I cant describe this watch better then my dear Friend Joel:

 

The Pavés d’Or, 1976, an elegant line for him and her, based on the hand-wound calibre 625 or the automatic calibre 711 without seconds. The watches were equipped with an ultra-flat and shock-resistant movement protected by a rectangular two-tone steel and 14-carat gold case with rounded edges and with a fine satin-brushed or chiselled decoration (striped or checked). Flat bezel with a polished bevel, polished case middle, sapphire crystal, black dial, polished, faceted and riveted gold baguette hours markers and polished gold baton hands. 

 

Omega was founded in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt. Out of this small watch manufacture grew a large company: In 1894, the famous 19-ligne pocket watch movement was developed and named “Omega”. Omega, as the final letter of the Greek alphabet, stands for the ultimate level in perfection and quality. In the 1930 the company entered into collaboration with the S.S.I.H. (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). Out of this collaboration the Swatch Group developed. Today, Omega is the flagship of this huge company. In 1932, Omega entered its partnership with the Olympics which continues till today. When in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished the first moon landing there were equipped by Omega with the Speedmaster, and this so-called „Moonwatch“ is still regarded as one of the most significant watches in history. 

 

Why buying a vintage watch?

 

There are many great reasons to buy a vintage watch. Every watch we sell here at WRISTCLASSICS has its own story. Over the years, with every scratch, dent and aging of the dial, they have become unique timepieces of their own. This exact watch you are looking at now, once brought a lot of joy to the first owner with the purchase years ago. And now many years later this vintage watch will bring the same joy to your life. With buying a vintage watch you are showing your commitment to protecting the enviroment, instead of supporting the mass production of modern fashion watches.

 

I hope this helps you with your decision of buying a vintage watch here at WRISTCLASSICS.
