It's incredible to think that this watch didn't sell particularly well for Omega at retail, I believe that this is why you very rarely see this reference come up pre-owned and just not that many got sold in the first place. It feels like a hidden gem among the modern Omega watches to me, one we will look back on and wonder how we missed it?
Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army. After stringent tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice of timepiece. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group. In 1967 Omega launched the De Ville as a stand-alone line. Much more streamlined, variety, and younger feel than the Seamaster, it soon became Omega’s best-selling collection.
