Omega Seamaster DeVille Steel

During World War II, Omega shifted their efforts towards producing simple and reliable timepieces at large scale for various militaries. After the war, Omega resumed their production of consumer pieces with a new approach- the new post-war Omegas were notable for their clean, legible dials and stalwart movements, making them a popular choice for a sharp-looking everyday watch.

Of particular note in the post-war years was the introduction of the iconic Seamaster line in 1948, so named for its then-innovative waterproofing. Over time, the Seamaster name was applied to a variety of pieces with waterproof cases, from simple, time-only pieces to full-fledged dive watches. Omega introduced the DeVille in the early 1960's as a way to differentiate the dressier pieces from the tool watches, eventually spinning them off into fully distinct product lines.

While vintage Omegas have gained in popularity thanks to their affordable prices and classic looks, it has also made finding worthwhile examples a bit more difficult.

This mid 1960's example does not disappoint- compared to earlier Seamasters, it features a more svelte case with slimmer lugs and a narrower bezel, making it wear bigger than its 34.5mm diameter would suggest. The dial, in true DeVille style, is clean and uncluttered, with baton hour markers, an applied Omega symbol, and a beautiful sunburst silver finish. The icing on the cake is an Omega-signed "beads of rice"-style bracelet.

Vintage Omega is hot right now and it's easy to see why- even after 50 years, the Seamaster DeVille's timeless design and elegant proportions make for a handsome and understated timepiece for any occassion.
