As someone who very openly enjoys watches that many other people might not find as appealing, I pay particular attention to the series that many brands don’t feature on the homepages of their websites. The Omega De Ville Replica Watches Prestige collection, besides being a somewhat hidden gem within the larger sphere of Seamasters, Speedmasters, and Constellations, happens to fit this criteria.
The Omega De Ville series was born around 1960 as part of the larger Seamaster series of watches. It was, at the time, the continuation of the classic dress watch heritage the Seamaster had embodied since 1948, but one that had become less important since the launch of the first dive Cheap Omega Replica in the series in 1957. It was in 1967 that the De Ville collection became independent of the Seamaster line, and began to develop its own individual charm and heritage. These were watches that continued to be dressy, classic, and elegant, but now appealed to a much wider market of consumers through their interesting designs, variety of cases — including squares, rectangles, and ovals — competitive prices, and timelessness of their dials.
Today, the Omega Replica collection, like other Omega collections, is a much larger collection of watches, with a multitude of “sub-series” hidden within. The particular “sub-series” we’ll be covering is the De Ville Prestige collection—a group of watches that continues to represent what made the De Ville series so appealing since its launch as an independent model in ’67.The watch, as its name indicates, is housed in a 36.8-mm case available in steel, yellow or rose gold, or two-tone. Within resides the automatic Omega Caliber 2500— the very first Co-Axial movement available commercially, a historically important movement for Omega Replica Watches and a major contribution to the world of watchmaking.
On the two-zoned dial, there is the option for either gold, white, blue, or silver, with applied Roman numerals at each quarter-hour, and tick marks for the remaining points. At the 3 o’clock position resides a utilitarian date indicator with sword hands for the hours and minutes sweeping over it. The last feature to notice is the chain-link bracelet—a bracelet somewhat reminiscent of the “rice-bead” bracelets so prevalent on vintage Omegas.
While in all possibility Cheap Omega might not have meant for this watch to be a tribute to the more historical De Ville lineage, it is the contemporary series’ classic and timeless designs that give it a somewhat “vintage-esque” feel. From it being one of the smallest Omega men’s watches, with an approximately 37-mm case; to its understated dial; to its sleek, most likely vintage-Seamaster-inspired hands; to, finally, its chain-link bracelet— this watch gives the impression that it has not forgotten what made the De Ville so appealing decades ago.
As you can tell, I like the modern Omega Replica Watches line. It is a collection far from the limelight that often graces Omega’s flagship collections, and, in my opinion, is one of the last holdouts, in a relatively affordable sense, of a classic watch meant to slip subtly beneath a shirt cuff. Some watches are underappreciated, some watches are understated; I feel that this watch happens to be both.
