Omega De Ville Silver Ref. 8343
During the early 1970s, Omega underwent a period marked by bold experimentation and remarkable innovation. Among their diverse range of unconventional collections, the Jeux d’Argent line stood out. Comprising an array of sterling silver wristwatches, this line sought to harmoniously unite the realms of jewelry and timepieces. Through collaborations with multiple designers, Omega fostered an environment of creativity, resulting in a series of exceptionally imaginative watch designs.
One such masterpiece is the OMEGA De Ville ref. 8343, distinguished by its robust 925 silver case and bracelet. Crafted by the renowned designer ‘Andrew Grima’, this watch embodies rarity and distinction. With its captivating aesthetics, this timepiece is tailored for the sophisticated woman, offering a touch of elegance that is truly captivating.

When Omega launched its Seamaster line in 1948, the watches initially featured traditional round cases, without any sort of diving-specific features such as a dive time bezel. When these were added in 1957, the collection became a bit cluttered. A late 1950’s Seamaster could be a small dress watch or a chunky diver. In terms of clarity, there was room for improvement.
Omega tried to solve this in 1963 by adding the De Ville designation to its dressier Seamasters. These would be the more classical, smaller and dressier watches within the Seamaster range. The idea was to separate the Seamaster range into sporty Seamasters and sophisticated Seamaster De Villes.
But as is often the case with big companies with many, many managerial layers, the decision would be turned on its head once again in 1967. The De Ville name was separated from the Seamaster and launched as its own collection. From a commercial point of view, it was a stroke of brilliance though. The De Ville line was used for more sophisticated, more elegant models than its sports lines. It was an instant hit.
The De Ville line has existed since. It featured (and still does) countless variations in design, complications, sizes and materials. Sophisticated and elegant. If these are qualities you hold in high regard, the De Ville collection might just harbor that perfect watch for you!
