Hi all. I'm a newbie. My husband is into high end watches and I am into vintage things. He bought me an Eterna Kontiki watch years ago that I love. I decided to go ebaying yesterday to see what I could find. I found an Omega De Ville automatic ladies watch offered by a local seller. I like the looks of it so I made am offer and it was accepted. I've done this backward because now I am trying to identify it. It hasn't yet arrived so I am going by photos and text in the listing.
First, here is the listing: Omega Ladies Automatic DE Ville Watch Vintage 1960 NEW Crocodile Leather Band | eBay
Next, here is a link to big photos: Auctiva Image Hosting
Here is relevant text copied from the eBay listing:
Movement: Signed “OMEGA Watch Co, 661, Twenty Four 24 Jewels, 91037166, Swiss”
case: Signed “ OMEGA Watch Co, Fab Suisse, Swiss Made, Plaque or G 20 Microns, Fond Acier Inoxydable, 551048, 407”.
I found out that the 551 means ladies, automatic, non-water-resistant.
On Omega's site, they have a vintage watch search. I didn't find anything under 551.048 or 551048. I did (through brute force) find this watch, which may be the same but in stainless steel and manual:

any ideas for me? I apologize if I should have posted this in the ladies' or Omega forum instead. I appreciate your help! I hope I haven't bought a really creative fake or a lemon.
