Study this dial carefully. We have not seen the like of it. The vertical lines and the hour markers makes it stand out. The watch is in very good condition, coming complete with it’s original beads of rice (“bor”) bracelet reference number 1037 with end links stamped 70. The movement has caliber 552, and it has been fully serviced (December 2020). Our watchmaker warranty covers it for 12 months. The case reference is 14905-X-62 and the serial number 20658767 both date it to ca. 1962. This is an early Seamaster DeVille. The long “S” in “Seamaster” indicates an older date than the more standard “S” found on dials from ca. mid sixties. The difference from a “standard” Seamaster and the Seamaster DeVille version is as follows: The model is slimmer, it has a monocoque case (not a screw on back cover) thereby protecting the movement from accidental leaks due to faulty back cover gasket. The dials also have (on the automatic versions) the “OMEGA” lettering applied in white gold as opposed to being printed on the dial. In short, it cost more to by, as it was considered to be a more dressy Seamaster. Case diameter is 34,5mm. This automatic vintage stainless steel Omega Seamaster is a rare find!
