Omega Seamaster De Ville Automatic

Omega Seamaster De Ville Automatic

SKU: VWS-1680

Here is a fabulous, all original Omega Seamaster De Ville from 1963. The brushed silver dial has taken on a lovely caramel patina in what is known as a tropical dial. It has a steel Omega logo and emblem and a few tiny corrosion spots. It has faceted steel hour markers, the ones at the poles with black onyx inlay, double at 12 o’clock. The baton hands are in fine condition with some corrosion visible, especially on the seconds hand. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the date, which can be semi quick-set by first turning the hands through midnight so the date changes, then immediately turning the hands backwards to 21:00 and then forward through midnight again. Repeat as necessary. Refer to for help if you are unsure of how to set the date.


The stainless steel bezel is in very fine condition with light overall wear, perhaps most notable at around 5 o’clock. The stainless steel case with the original crown and straight lugs is in very fine condition with some overall wear. The stainless steel case back is in very fine condition, with a crisp and clean hippocampus logo and very little wear.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, Omega’s high grade 562 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in April 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Seamaster De Ville is one of our absolute favorite watches, and this one is a very fine example of why. This is a very versatile watch that will be a perfect daily driver and will add nicely to a regular rotation schedule.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
