The Omega De Ville Prestige collection is a somewhat hidden gem within the larger sphere of Seamasters, Speedmasters, and Constellations. Born around 1960 as part of the larger Omega Seamaster series of watches, the De Ville was a continuation of the classic dress watch heritage the Seamaster had embodied since 1948.
Breguet produces three styles of the Breguet Type XX, inspired by vintage military aviation watches: the namesake Type XX, Type XXI, and Type XXII. We cover the modern re-interpretation of the Breguet Type XX Aeronavale Automatic Chronograph (Ref. 3800ST/92/9W6) in this week’s Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy feature.
We take a look at the Patek Philippe Aquanaut, a series as lovingly controversial as the Nautilus is to Patek purists, but as contemporarily appealing to everybody else since its initial release in 1997. It is a vintage watch conceived with some heavy historical inspirations.
