Omega Seamaster de Ville Ref. 166.020 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1967
A stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with date
Omega first introduced the 166.020 model in 1962 and their double ‘branding’ of the model as a Seamaster ‘de Ville’, emphasised the watch’s sporty nature (for which the Seamaster models were well-known) whilst also drawing on the watch’s classic, dress-style look which the ‘De Ville’ range was introduced to represent. This example of the model has a classic, light, silvery grey finish to the dial and there are applied baton indexes and black inserts. The watch retains its signed Omega crystal and crown. The dial has a good lustre and there are some small scratches to the surface of the dial. Automatically wound via the calibre 565, the movement also has provision for quick date change. When the crown is pulled out to the second position, the date flips forward, thereby allowing easy advancement when required.
