This update opens with a great example of the Tudor Prince Oysterdate Ref. 7996. The dial has a satin silvered finish and applied steel indexes, the numeral at 12 carries the engraved ‘Rose’ emblem of the Tudor brand. Faceted blackened hands contrast with the dial’s surface and numerals to increase legibility.

Powered by the Tudor finished ETA calibre 2462 the movement has 25 jewels and semi-quick date change. Each day the date will change automatically around midnight but can be manually advanced when required by moving the hands backwards and forwards between 8pm and 1am.

Omega Seamaster De Ville Ref.166.020 Circa 1966

Omega first introduced ref.166.020 in 1962. The double ‘branding’ of the model as both a ‘Seamaster’ and a ‘de Ville’ emphasised the watch’s sporty nature (for which the Seamaster models were well-known) while 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 with black inserts. The watch retains its signed Omega crystal and crown. Automatically wound via the calibre 565, the movement also has provision for quick date change. This watch is accompanied by a red Omega presentation box and is fitted with a new Hirsch Duke strap and the original steel Omega pin buckle.

By pulling the crown out to its secondary setting, the hack feature engages, thereby stopping the seconds hand to allow accurate synchronisation to a time signal; in this position, rolling the crown towards the wearer advances the hands, rolling away advances the days of the week in tandem with reverse hand setting.
