I wanted to share some pictures of this beautiful Omega which was passed down to me. I cant seem to find too much information on the internet about it; if anyone has any knowledge about this gorgeous timepiece, I would love to hear it. I took it to the local Omega Botique, and the lady at the counter told me she thinks its worth about 30,000 USD, but didn't know for sure, since its rare and she'd never seen one before. I'd like to sell it, but I need to get an idea of how much it's worth. Any and all info you may have will be appreciated.

It is a lovely piece and a wonderful heirloom. It's a deville power reserve from maybe mid/early 2000s. Most of the value of this one is going to be the gold content. It is rare yes but rarity not necessarily equal desirability. Figure out the gold value then maybe add a few grand for the piece itself. I'm thinking maybe 8-10 grand a ballpark.

OMEGA DE VILLE CO-AXIAL 4132.31.00

your links are all of the yellow gold model with the closed case back. Mine is red/rose gold with the open case back. very similar, but not the same model. The staff at the omega store identified mine as Model# 41632000. Not very much out there on it.

I have a similar one in SS. I love the bracelet, and think it adds to the value.

Yours is obviously worth more from a precious metal standpoint, plus being somewhat limited in initial availability.

What's the karat weight stamp in the clasp when opened? 750? I wonder if the value of the bracelet exceeds that of the case/movement.
Made a 2nd trip to the Omega store and asked how much a replacement bracelet would cost. Approximately 22k USD for the bracelet.

Of course they would sell it for that but would they buy it from you for that? Have they sold any recently for that? I'd love to tell you that your watch is worth 30k and I have 5buyers lined up for you ready to wire you the cash. You need to find out what the smelt value of that bracelet is, not some fantasy charge from omega. This is going to be your absolute bottom value. If you want to sell it, put it up on some of the forums for what you want and see what kind of offers you get for it. If you get a number you are satisfied with seal the deal. Another problem you have is seller reputation. Not saying you are a bad guy but with 6 posts here your not going to be taken seriously on the forums as a seller. Speedys, pos, ats trade hands daily on the forums but 30k omegas not so much. It's a beautiful watch but for 30k I'm getting a Patek or Breguet.

Patek is a wonderful brand. I have a 5146/1J-001 for sale as well. If you'd prefer that over an omega, PM me. Exquisite watch. Retails at $68.5k. Looking for something very reasonable in the mid-high 30's (dropped from 40's) Here's a few pics.

wow haven't seen this nice dial. it's so white like it was a porcelain. this is a watch you defenetly don't sell. if I was given this watch, I'd polish it then have it in exhibition closet.

As has been pointed out, that doesn't necessarily mean much in relation to what you have. Vintage watches can be weird like that. I have an old Rolex Oyster Perpetual that needs a new bracelet. If I could service the watch locally for $500 (which is low), and add the bracelet for another $500 (which is also low), at the end of the day my watch still probably wouldn't be worth the thousand I put into it. Coincidentally, a friend briefly had a Rolex Submariner from the same year. It was in worse shape than mine, and needed a service. He sold it for just north of $100,000.
The point is: It's all about demand.
Your DeVille is a gorgeous watch, and if you were to buy one like it new you could easily spend $30,000, maybe more. But it doesn't carry the kind of demand that my friend's Sub did, or likely the same as a steel Seamaster from the early 2000s would if we're speaking in percentages of value retention. It's possible that its being rose makes it worth more than the yellow since there were undoubtedly fewer of them made - but it's also possible that it doesn't since fewer of them were made for a reason.
I think the $8000-10,000 figure that's been suggested is probably very close. I fear that you'd have some difficulty selling it even for that though, as you're going to be waiting for someone to buy it that likes it, has the disposable income, and isn't more interested in something else. I'd almost guarantee you if you took a 3rd trip to the Omega AD and asked them what they'd buy it for they'd be under $7000 trade, my guess is closer to $5000 because they'd want to service it (which could be costly), and then they have to sit on it while they wait for a buyer, or sell it to another wholesaler who has to have room to make a profit also.
If you're trading towards another watch, someone might give you a bit more - at least in a retail environment - but if you're looking for thirty, or even twenty, I fear you'll be looking for a very long time.
