Towards the end of 2020, I decided that I was going to slow down the pace of my watch reviews, and while I know I should also speak slower in them, I was mostly referring to the number of reviews I put out each month. I plan to spend 2021 exploring watches that I find personally interesting, while also looking at some more mid-range and high-end luxury watches. This is likely to mean fewer, but more interesting micro-brands, and a lot more traditional luxury watch brands. In that realm, there's no better brand to kick things off with, than Omega.
I purchased this watch from a friend and supporter of this channel, who I must thank for providing me with so many watches for us to check out. This is the Omega De Ville Prestige 36.5mm dress watch, that I believe was originally purchased in 2012. This watch features the iconic Omega 2500 Co-Axial movement, and is keeping incredible time, nearly a decade later. The De Ville collection is overshadowed by the Seamaster and Speedmaster lineups, but these watches have been a silent, but successful addition to the Omega catalog. This watch originally retailed for $3300, but could be found between $2000-2500 at your nearest grey market dealer.
