Nostalgically designed, the case backs of this new fake watch are not transparent as they would be today but rather solid, brushed, and embossed with a likeness of Chronos, the god of time, alongside the words “De Ville” and “50th Anniversary.”
The front of these De Ville models is dominated by an enamel dial proudly emblazoned with nostalgically classic black numerals -except for the “12” which is red to denote enamel as the dial material – and an unique railroad track for the minutes. The color of the 18-karat gold hands matches that of the 18-karat gold case material.
This replica watch is affordable in price, which sports a three-year guarantee, is powered by automatic Omega co-axial Caliber 2500. This movement was selected the reason are varies, for example, all mechanical Omega wristwatches are now powered by co-axial movements; this is also a nod to the fact that it was the De Ville that first housed a co-axial movement back in 1999.
50 years ago, the Omega’s De Ville line hit retailers’ shelve and in the same year of 1967, the world’s first heart transplant took place. The Beatles released “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” and Thurgood Marshall was confirmed to the Supreme Court as the first African-American Supreme Court justice. In fashion, men wore ankle-high boots and women wore jaunty boots and often a jauntily slanted beret or pillbox hat along with them. And either sex may have sported a popular replica Omega wristwatch to keep the time.
Now the Omega replica celebrates this golden anniversary of mechanics and fashion by presenting three new deluxe models in beautiful replica omega gold cases – not an everyday occurrence for the Biel-based brand, even today – in housings reminiscent of the original stylish cases of that golden year.
And recalling the heyday of yellow gold as the most elegant metal of the time, the brand introduces these 39.5 mm cases not only in modern white gold and red gold, but also yellow gold – which docks right into a trend-in-the-making of yellow gold’s comeback in watches (see Will Yellow Gold Find Its Way Back To The Wrist Soon?
