As someone who very openly enjoys watches that many different people might not find as attractive, I pay special attention to the series that lots of brands do not feature on the homepages of their websites. The Omega De Ville Prestige collection, aside from being a somewhat hidden jewel within the larger sphere of Seamasters, Speedmasters, and Constellations, occurs to fit this criteria.
The Omega de ville prestige butterfly replica watch De Ville series was created around 1960 as part of the larger Seamaster series of watches. It had been, at the time, the continuation of the timeless dress watch heritage the Seamaster had embodied since 1948, but one that was less significant since the initiation of the very first dive watch at the series in 1957. It was in 1967 that the De Ville set became independent of their Seamaster line, and started to develop its own personal charm and legacy. These were watches which lasted to be dressy, classic, and elegant, but now appealed to a much wider market of consumers through their interesting designs, variety of cases — such as squares, rectangles, and ovals — competitive rates, and timelessness of their dials.
Today, the De Ville collection, like other Omega de ville prestige orbis clone watch collections, is a far larger assortment of watches, using a multitude of”sub-series” concealed inside. The particular”sub-series” we’ll be covering is your De Ville Prestige set –a group of watches that continues to signify what made the De Ville series so attractive because its launch as an independent version in’67.
On the two-zoned dial, there is the choice for either gold, blue, white, or silver, with applied Roman numerals at every quarter-hour, and tick marks to the rest points. At the 3 o’clock position resides a pragmatic date index with sword hands for the hours and moments crossing it over. The previous feature to note is the chain-link necklace –a necklace somewhat reminiscent of the”rice-bead” bracelets so widespread on classic Omegas. If you are on the hunt, Omega replica watches has this opinion recorded starting at $3,700, but it’s possible to find it for much less in a dealer.
While in all potential Omega de ville prestige replica watch review might not have meant with this watch for a tribute to the more historical De Ville lineage, it is the modern series’ classic and timeless designs that give it a somewhat”vintage-esque” feel. From it being one of the smallest Omega de ville prestige co-axial fake men’s watches, with an approximately 37-mm instance (still at the very least a millimeter or two bigger than the vintage pieces); into its understated dial; into its glossy, most probably vintage-Seamaster-inspired hands; to, finally, its chain-link bracelet (likely more resilient than the stretch-prone rice bead version) — this watch provides the impression that it has not forgotten what made the De Ville so attractive decades past.
It is a collection far from the limelight which frequently graces Omega’s flagship collections, and, in my opinion, is one of the last holdouts, in a relatively affordable sense, of a classic watch intended to slip subtly under a shirt cuff. Some watches are underappreciated, some watches are understated; I believe that this view happens to be both.
