Case and Crown

This 9k Gold De Ville, Shackman cased watch has the ‘Hippocampus’ and Seamaster logo on the back. This watch was a presentation watch and as such the back is inscribed ‘Presented to Mr E Hardman. Sec’ and ‘In Appreciation Moss Bank Labour Club’. Inside the case is hallmarked ‘n’ which dates the case to circa 1968. It has a gold coloured signed Omega crown.

The case and crown are in excellent condition with no major marks or blemishes.

Dial, Hands and Glass

The watch has a beautiful Omega signed, brushed, cream dial with guilt baton hour markers and a double baton at the 12 o’clock. All have black inlays. The hour, minute and seconds hands are guilt “stick” style with tritium lume.

The dial, hands and signed Armoured Hesalite glass are all in excellent condition with no visual blemishes.


The accurate and reliable Calibre 565 movement as you would expect from an Omega is running very well. The movement number is 2896**** and dates the watch to the late 1960’s which bares out the hallmark stamp also, and confirms that the watch dates to circa 1968/69.


The watch comes on an new tan brown leather strap with a gold coloured pin buckle.

Box and Papers

There are no original papers with this watch but it does come in an Omega service box. A detailed invoice together with any warranty will be provided at the time of sale. It can also be supplied with our exclusive, genuine leather, VWS watch case as listed here which can be purchased at a discount if purchased with the watch.

In Conclusion

This is a fantastic example of this very elegant Omega De Ville watch dating to the late 1960’s and retaining its classic good looks. It is in excellent condition and the Calibre 565 movement is running strong and keeping good time. Its 35mm 9k gold Shackman case means it would sit well either as a gents or a ladies time piece.
