The Omega is to a very large degree the "Seamaster" and "Speedmaster" replica watches brand. Those two timepiece families mostly dominate the image we think of when someone mentions Omega. Let's think about some of the more noteworthy things Omega is known for. Well there is the moon landing watch for one - that was a Speedmaster replica watch. There are the modern James Bond watches, those are all Seamaster replica watches - which are on my mind right now as I just saw Skyfall a few days ago. Omega is a sport watch brand to Americans, and that is how we like it.
Internationally Omega is more than that. Lest we forget the Omega Constellation Replica and De Ville replica watch families. These two arms of Omega are decades old and represent a different, more formal side of the brand. Even if they do not represent what you are looking for in an Omega, they are worth being familiar with. In the US they don't have as much traction as the "masters," but they are still good watches. Let's take a look at one of the newer De Ville replica watch.
While I do find the crown and pushers a bit plain, the Omega De Ville replica watch case is rather attractive with high-quality finishing and nice contrast polishing. I am happy to see that there is at least 100 meters of water resistance as well. The available bracelet however has proven to be a polarizing design. I intentionally wanted to review it in order to see how it looks on the wrist after wearing it for a while. From a quality perspective, the bracelet is well-made, and comfortable - in other words, what you've come to expect from modern Omega metal bracelets. From a design perspective, the mixture of larger and smaller polished and satin-finished links is a matter of taste. I could live with it just fine, but for me it will never be a Planet Ocean bracelet for instance. The alligator strap with deployant clasp is mighty appealing for a watch like this. I do wonder what it would have been like if Omega created an updated version of the last generation De Ville's bracelet which is sometimes called the "armadillo" bracelet. It is probably one of the most unique metal bracelets Omega has ever designed - though I will save that discussion for another time.
