I have always been looking for a perfect watch for daily wearing, I own a Submariner now, it is a very good watch I bought from VS factory, and the watch will act very well in any occasions, however, I still want one casual watch that does not look that thick like Submariner, a dress watch which I can wear everyday, made with stainless steel and has big dial, this Omega De Ville seems to be a perfect one, I will go and buy from VS on another day.
People said that owning one Rolex and one G-Shock is enough for a man in his lifetime, I do not agree. Buying a Rolex is indeed a good investment in our life, each of us should buy one, but if you only have two watches in your collection, that’s not enough. I think you guys all care about the new models those Swiss brands unveiled every year, some are even interested in homages made in China and have bought several models, like you, I also want to buy a lot of watches to enrich my collection, but I do not suggest you guys buy too many homage watches made in China, they are not as good as the high-end super clones in our market.
To buy replica watches in our market, I always suggest you buy from big factories such as ZF and VS, I bought one IWC Portuguese Chrono from ZF and one Submariner 116610LN from VS two years ago, both still work fine, it seems like watches from ZF and VS also have fewer errors, I never returned them to the factories for repairing. This Omega De Ville is the second watch I want to buy from VS, it looks so elegant and has a big face everyone likes. The quality is not the thing should be worried on the watch, now no other factories can manufacture better quality Omega watches than VS.
The case has a very good finish, its front, bezel, lugs, every part reflects the highest level of craftsmanship, the finish of case and bracelet is getting better, now it can even be compared with genuine watch, I have not seen any Chinese homage watches that are sold at around 200 USD or 300 USD have such high quality finish like this Omega, the alternative use of polishing and brushing on case and bracelet can be a classic example for any other watch factories to learn. The watch has a case diameter of 41mm, and only 13.8mm in thickness, the lugs are made with a precise arc shape, so the entire case can be even used by a genuine Omega De Ville watch, VS factory claimed that.
The movement inside this Omega De Ville is the best clone 8500 you can find, other factories make Omega replica watches, perhaps they have the same finish on case, dial and bracelet, but their movement can not be on the same level as that of VS factory. From the see-through crystal back, you can check its decoration and construction, both are almost the same as genuine Omega 8500 Calibre. This is the ultimate form of the clone 8500 movement, I do not believe that VS factory can improve this movement continuously and produce a better one in future. By the way, now VS offers one extra black leather band for free if you buy the stainless steel bracelet version.
