    Well done, Peter!

    Merry Christmas, my friend.

    P.S.: Omega first reference is for the gold case model, but I believe yours is the equivalent s.steel case.

    thankyou C -that is a great starting point for me and certainly looks a match - after New Year i will get a look inside - early 60's would be a nice bonus as the De ville was only introduced in 1960 i believe - - halcyon times for Omega quality - thankyou my friend
