Omega first debuted their De Ville series - like the full serviced 1960's Ref. 14915, complete with its original BOR bracelet, here - under the Seamaster line, and then as a stand alone line in the late 1960s. This example of the former features a refined silver dial, with applied indexes and black inserts. The stainless steel case features a one piece body, with striations that radiate outwards away from the dial. Omega's Seamaster line debuted in circa 1948, with the Seamaster De Ville following suite in 1963, and its run continued up through 1967. James Bond has worn it in films since 1995; other famous Omega wearers, past and present, include John F. Kennedy, UK’s Prince William, George Clooney, and Astronaut Buzz Aldrin – do we really need to note where Buzz wore his? Omega was officially founded in 1903, and its watches were the choice of NASA and the first watch on the Moon in 1969, and have frequently been the official timekeeping device of the Olympic Games since 1932. This Omega comes with an its original BOR bracelet, nylon NATO strap, springbar tool, and hard plastic travel case.
