In Response To: seamaster de ville ?? ()

: I happen to own an omega watch (late sixties I guess), automatic movement
: with date. On the dial it says De Ville, but on the back there is an
: engraved seahorse and the word "seamaster". Did omega make a
: "seamaster de ville" or is the back not the original back?

Yes. They made many of them. At the time, the DeVille and Constellation were marketed as their fancier, higher-end watches. So they did some models of the Seamaster as 'Seamaster DeVille' when they realized there was a demand for higher-end waterproof watches.
