    Up for sale is my vintage Omega De Ville Chronograph, reference 145.017, caliber 860.

    Case: The case is in very nice condition. Still sharp but shows small scratches and dings commensurate with age.

    Movement: Watch runs and chrono functions but I do not know the service history. The movement does now show a serial number as the bridge that contains the serial appears to have been changed in the past. I have another 860 De Ville which also has a blank serial bridge, I am honestly not sure why. I recommend a service if you intend to wear this watch regularly.

    Dial and Hands: Original 2-register black dial and steel hands in nice condition.

    Strap: Comes on pictured brown leather vintage strap. 19mm lugs.

    Pictures are an important part of the description, please view them carefully and let me know if you need any others.

    Shipping via FedEx 2-day with ParcelPro in the US (cost included) and via FedEx international priority internationally (at cost less $20). Watch is located in Chicago, IL (USA).

    My asking price is $2,100 USD net to me, payment via Chase quickpay or bank wire. Paypal is accepted on a case by case basis. I have references available in the seller feedback section of OF.

    Thanks! toddle3218 at yahoo dot com

    well famous now and hodinkee endorsed forever branded to the watches authenticity claims no future problems there i think i can see a whole new collectible line opening up "Hodinkee Endorsed" soon we will see dozens of fakes all over ebay!! of course they will be perfectly good chrono deville's with the 860 but all will have the bridged swapped over... Claiming indeed to be THE hodinkee endorsed and featured.
