    Question on Vintage Omega DeVille Chronograph cal 860

    So, considering purchasing an Omega De Ville Chronograph, reference 145.017, caliber 860. The watch checks out and looks authentic, but there's one thing that concerns me. On the movement, the bridge/piece that should contain the movement serial number, according to the seller, has been replaced. Therefore, there is no serial number on the movement. Should I be concerned? Could this affect the value of the watch?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you should be concerned. I would walk away from this one.

    I wouldn't buy it. But if you do, be aware that it will greatly affect the value of the watch.

    I know it's been forever, but did you end up moving along or picking it up?

    At the end of all its your decision if you want a watch with replacement part working well or if you want a watch with the movement preserved in original condition. Take in mind that the quality sometimes can be affected from the spare ''unperfect'' and not original part.
    Kind regards
