    My mum's Omega De Ville - Help - Model ? What is is worth ?

    My Mum has an Omega DE Ville. It was a gift, so she doesn't know what it is worth or what model it is. She doesn't have the cards.

    Could you help me identify what exact model it is, and what it is worth ?

    I attached a photo below. It is in 18 carat gold, and there are 3 small diamonds ? at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock.

    Hope you can help. She doesn't wear it because it has to be manually winded, so she might be willing to sell it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Thierry

    Frankly, it's almost impossible to identify that watch without more information. Do you have any idea of the approximate date that watch was manufactured or initially bought? You say it has to be wound, but I don't see a crown... Could it be quartz? Any markings on the back?

    It looks somewhat like the Vasarelli line, from the nineties, which had inlaid diamonds in their bezels, but these were all quartz...

    Maybe a variant of model BA 811.0999? ...

    That 18K YG ladies De Ville was offered for £845 in the UK in 1977.

    It was bought late 80s, early 90s. The crown is hidden under the edge of the watch which makes it very difficult to wind. It's definitely not a quartz.

    There are a few numbers on the bracelet/clasps, but nothing on the watch apart from the "De Ville" marking on the face of the watch.

    My wife has several Omegas that are similar, but not exact.

    We gave between $600 and $800 for them. A couple were a little over a thousand.

    We're Ebay bargain hunters.

    The issue is collectability. Collectors are mostly men, so ladies watches don't attract quite the attention or price that a similar vintage mens watch would fetch.

    Probably with calibre 625 from early 80s.
    Similar to BC 811.1115 with identical strap.
