About this watch
This Omega 1963 Seamaster De Ville is a beautiful piece. With the textured dial enhancing the gold hands and gold baton markers, it becomes a statement of style and confidence.
The case, made with a layer of real gold melted onto a base of steel, holds the original 24 jewels calibre 562 automatic movement with its 19,800 bph (5.5 beats per second) and sweeping second hand. The movement is held safe by the Incabloc shock protection system.
The reference number 166022 indicates a self-winding watch designed for a gentleman.
Measuring 35mm in diameter, it has a signed crown and carries the distinct Seamaster hippocampus logo on the reverse.
The watch is completely original and has been fully serviced and regulated. It runs reliably, holding charge well and keeping very good time.
A little history:
The Omega Seamaster, introduced in 1948, was an early waterproof watch from Omega. The De Ville version of the Seamaster featured a case where the access to the movement was gained through the front of the watch rather than the back. The Seamaster De Ville was available from 1963.
In the same year:
Martin Luther King delivered his famous “I have a dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. The famous cycle race, La Tour de France, celebrated its 50th anniversary and the race of 4137km was won for the fourth time by Anquetil. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Ian Fleming’s book about secret agent James Bond, was published in the UK.
