Vintage Omega watches are some of the most storied in the wide world of horology. From the sporty Speedmaster – the first watch on the moon – to the more dressy watches powered by the venerable 30T2 movement, Omega offers something for everyone.
Omega watches containing a version of the 30 series movement are becoming a common sight on Dial + Bezel and for good reason.
The Omega DeVille wears its solid gold tonneau shaped case and linen finished dial, that is obviously 1970s dress Omega, well.
This reference is distinguished from other Dynamic models by the combination of a day-date function as well as a brushed case and the automatic 752 calibre movement.
This particular watch, reference 2846, represents the earlier, dressier side of the Seamaster line with a gold plated case and automatic, calibre 552.
The Ref. 145.029 is a seriously underrated chronograph from what is one of Omega’s most prolific decades, the 70s.
The Omega De Ville line was first introduced in 1967 as a more dressy alternative to many of the tool and sport watches that Omega had been introducing in the period.
