Superb Vintage Omega Seamaster DeVille Automatic Wristwatch.
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 and judging by this example they nailed that brief.
This Gold Capped Version was worn by Daniel Craig in the 2019 film "Knives Out".
