automatic wind dress watch with unusual textured dial in a unishell case.
Reference 14.905 polished case, with original knurled signed crown and acrylic
crystal, and original omega stainless steel buckle. Seamonster caseback in very
good condition. A beautiful dress Omega in outstanding condition for its age!
The Seamaster De Ville was first introduced in 1963. Omega had introduced the De
Ville line in 1960 that descended from the Seamaster line. It combined the
monocoque case design from the Seamaster with the slim profile and refined
aesthetics of a classic dress watch. This combination of greater water
resistance and elegant looks turned out be a great success. But it was Norman
Morris, Omega’s general agent in the US, that requested to actually put both the
Seamaster and the De Ville name on the dial. Up until then, it only mentioned
Seamaster on the dial. Morris really liked the combination of the Seamaster’s
functionality and the elegance of the De Ville design. And by combining the
words, it would simply tell the story at a glance.
