    I recently purchased my Omega Deville Chrono on Ebay. Ive done a fair amount of research on this watch, but there isnt alot of info spread around. The cal.930 is a semi-rare movement produced in a short timespan and in total of 10.000 pieces. The caliber is also used in the bullhead which, is rarer, and more sought after. The caliber is based on the cal.861 but with minor tweeks to accomodate the date at 9 and the registers.

    being a watch from '70, its smaller than im used to but the 35-36mm sits just fine on the wrist (18,5cm).
    I cant really tell if the dial is redone, there are some small marks on it, and the hands look pretty dark-ish. Lume is not reapplied. Glass still has a visible omega logo, but it does seem like its been polished. The logo seems somewhat weak.

    The watch was cleaned and oiled, said the ebay-seller. It runs pretty decent so i believe him.

    Whats your take on this watch?
    Anything to be worried about?
    thoughts?

    Personally i love this model, its hard to come across, but i would like to settle down with a REALLY nice example. A part of me wants to ship it to Bienne Omega to do a full restoration. Its costy, but again, this piece is rare and having a 100% piece will absolutely become a keeper.

    Enough talk. Pictures!

    I second this! Leave it alone. Don't polish the case. Standard C/O/A on the movement
