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.
This watch, reference 2577-11, is fairly common, but this example has a few key differences that set it apart from its contemporaries.
Being an Omega Constellation, this watch was designed as a stylish dress watch but its design fits in somewhere more in between a dress watch and a sports watch.
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.
