The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch in this condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.

9. The Geneva Line, created in 1953, was made as an homage to our workshops in Geneva where OMEGAs best regulators were working.

11. OMEGA SEAMASTER DE VILLE: The Omega De Ville was introduced into the Seamaster range in 1963. It was considered by Omega to be the ultimate dress-watch, the personification of elegance, but retaining the country sport mantra so eagerly aspired to by certain echelons of society in the 1960s. Although subtle and understated, at its heart remained a very sturdy accurate sports movement in a unique one-piece case.
12. The Omega Seamaster was introduced in 1948. The De Ville version of the Seamaster featured a front-loading case where the access to the movement was gained through the front of the watch rather than the back. The Seamaster De Ville was available from 1963.
