Seamaster - De Ville model produced in circa 1965

This automatic Omega wrist watch was produced and sold in the 1960s, mainly for the American and European market.

It is within the Seamaster model range but specially designed under the ‘De Ville’ classic & slim style. Hence, it was signed on the dial as Seamaster De Ville.  The watch was purchased in Ho Chi Meng City, Vietnam from a watch dealer/shop.

This piece remains an all-time Omega classic in 1960 – 1970 era.
