In the United States Omega is to a very large degree the “Seamaster” and “Speedmaster” watch manufacturer. Those two timepiece families mostly dominate the picture we all think of when somebody strikes Omega. Let us think about some of the more noteworthy things Omega is known for. Well there is the moon landing watch for a single – which has been a Speedmaster. You will find the contemporary James Bond watches, those are Seamasters – which are on my head right now as I simply saw Skyfall a few days back. Omega is a sport watch brand to Americans, and that is the way we like it.Internationally Omega is more than that. Lest we forget the Constellation and De Ville observe families. These two arms of Omega are decades old and signify a different, more formal side of this brand. Even if they do not represent what you are looking for in an Omega, they’re worth being familiar with. Let’s take a look at one of those newer De Ville versions – the freshly redone Co-Axial Chronograph.This could be one of the first times I have really talked about a De Ville version on aBlogtoWatch. Mainly because a number of the old versions aren’t to my taste. Which is ironic because the first ever Omega I possessed was a vintage hand-wound De Ville from the 1970s. As soon as I saw the new Co-Axial Chronograph models at Baselworld 2012, ” I knew Omega had a relative hit. My difficulty with the elderly non-three hand men’s De Ville versions was that they appeared to lack a cohesive layout, and so were unsuccessfully asymmetrical in their appearance.A few years ago Omega made the De Ville Hour Vision that is exactly what all modern De Ville versions are based on. Omega went back to the origins of the De Ville set was likely to be and come out with a visually interesting dressy men’s watch with a touch of classic design as well a subtle Art Deco cosmetic.
