    Re: info on omega

    Movement and case go together. I have questions about the dial.

    Almost all Seamasters were water resistant, hence the name "Sea"master.

    The price sems very high for what it is.

    From the Omega Vintage Database:

    Hope this helps,

    I would think the Omega forum would know more but gatorcpa's post is quite comprehensive! And I agree... I looked at this and said 'ah, another De Ville'... but it is labeled 'Seamaster'. ... and no Seamaster logo on the back... I too suspect a possible redial. But if so, a good job except for getting the wrong model.

    update: on the bay I found another Seamaster in a 'De Ville'-type case... so maybe this is real! (This one has a Seamaster logo on the back...)

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thank you guys!

    It is too pricey for me but I like the case. I'll try researching Deville & Geneve lines for the same style.
