I am a retired watchmaker (official Omega) who makes live his watch collection.
I completely revised (completed maintenance oil service and modern glass) this watch in June 2015 and am selling it with 1 year warranty.
This watch is sold "like this", as described (the dial whit great patina is not perfect, look at 9/10 H), at 100 % original, case, movement, dial and crown signed, very good working condition, tested and giving good time. However, waterproof capabilities of vintage and pre-owned watch is not guaranted.
Very desirable watch, perfect to begin a collection.
Why buy more expensively the "Portofino" with a movement ETA?

Shipping to EU buyers can be arranged from a EU country.
