One thing I have not shown you is the yearly calendar disadvantage, and there’s a fantastic reason for that: you can not see it. But I can tell you a little about how it functions. Basically, the watch knows which months are brief and long. What’s the difference between an annual calendar and also the more common (and pricey) perpetual calendar? Well, the perpetual calendar knows when the jump season is and will adjust February accordingly. On this 8601 movement, February is treated as a 30 day month, but based on the year it has either 28 or 29 days. Thus, within an annual calendar like this, you will have to change the date once a year at the end of February.The De Ville, generally speaking, is just one of my favourite lines of Omega watches. Perhaps that’s not surprising to get a lover of Grand Seiko and Nomos watches, but it is surprising that the line receives so little attention from watch collectors. While many lovers of understated watches are out there versions such as this and the Hour Vision ought to be huge hits. Obviously, it is not that they’re unliked, more that they’re overshadowed by the legendary Seamaster and Speedmaster lines, and that’s a shame. Omega collectors are really missing out.When I first saw this De Ville, albeit the regular date version, I desired that the hands were a little more provocative. As time’s gone today, I have come to really enjoy the way the palms and each line of the Roman numerals match perfectly. The polishing onto the numerals is particularly impressive. They are a few of the finest applied markers I’ve ever seen.
