HI--I'm new to this forum and watch collecting, so PLEASE bear with me! I just purchased an Omega DeVille dress watch in which the bracelet and watch body are all one piece. The entire watch is gold-toned, except for the back, which appears to be stainless. Inside the back case it states a 20 micron gold plating, but on the bracelet clasp there's a hallmark (lozenge with what appears to a tall "T" with a letter on either side. Just below this is a stamping which appears to read "55%". I carefully tested the bracelet and watch body in several places, and it tested 10k or higher. Could this be, or am I just not getting through the plating? Also any info. on this watch would be greatly appreciated!---Inside case is numbered 111.0139. Works have the number 42 over 050818 and the omega symbol. Also the number 625 and Omega Swiss 17 jewels unadjusted. I know pictures would help a great deal, but I haven't figured that part out yet! Thanks so much! Jack.

Hello Jack, and welcome. The movement is a #625 manual wind, which was usually in a ladies watch from the 70's but also in thin men's dress watches. The serial number on the movement is the 42 over 050818 telling us it was produced in 1979. It is a gold plated watch, or maybe gold filled (click HERE for more info). That particular series of De Ville was introduced in 1977. This is what is on the Omega website:

DeVille construction

Thanks Team! You might know it--I DO have one more question--is the one piece bracelet/watch case pretty common?--I noticed on the website you sent me that they show the watch with a separate detachable leather band rather than the one-piece construction. Thanks again! Jack
