A solid fourteen carat gold automatic Omega Seamaster De Ville with date. The iconic Seamaster line first appeared in the Omega line in 1948. In this example, and the date version also listed this week, are the more unusual De Ville versions. De Ville would go on to become its own line under the Omega umbrella, it first appeared within the Seamster collection. It is very much a 'classic' wrist watch that is hard to not like. An unfussy, clean case with small frame, fine straight lugs and simple, uncluttered dial make it a very easy watch to wear on a daily basis. This version without the date is even more easy on the eye with no additional complications. It is a practical, hard working watch, thanks to its hard working Omega automatic movement. The fine and clean pencil hands are filled in the center with luminous material (dial stamped 'Swiss Made' at the base), which is also found placed at the ends of each of the applied gold stick hour markers. All of which are present, in excellent condition and have aged to a handsome light laté colour, sitting along the hashed minute track.

The watch is powered by an Omega caliber 560 automatic movement. The 560 is a 17 jewels, Swiss made, automatic movement that was found in various models in the 1960s, and was introduced by the brand circa 1959. This vintage calibre is in Omega’s signature copper plate movement with a swan neck style regulator system. There were a number of iterations based on this ebauche from the time for different models. They ranged from the 560 through to the 564, including higher grade chronometer iterations.

The handsome silver dial is signed Omega with the applied gold logo along with the printed Seamaster logo, with iconic "coat hanger" style S all of which is original, and not re-finished. The winding crown is also original with the Omega logo applied to it. The case back of the unishell case features the Seamaster seahorse logo and is in excellent unpolished condition. This watch features a solid 14k yellow gold case which was produced by the U.S.-based company Ross. In the '60s, it was common for Swiss watchmakers to send movements to the United States and have them domestically cases to due to the high import tariffs that were being levied on imports such as gold watches into the US.

Overall, a great watch for anyone looking for clean vintage class. No fuss. No bells and whistles. Just a great looking time only fine gold watch that is celebrating its 60th birthday this year. A very happy birthday indeed!
