Reviews: Omega DeVille Co-Axial GMT

February 28, 2006 . by John Biggs

I love Omega, but, the DeVille line kind of confuses me. The design is kind of off and the skinny numerals have a certain tacked-on look that I just can’t stomach. However, this GMT gained 2 seconds in a month and is just about as high quality an Omega as possible. As a watch enthusiast,…

February 25, 2006 . by John Biggs

We got an email earlier this month about Tauchmeister Watches. I decided to do a little digging and found they’re essentially the same as Aeromatic, which we reviewed a while back.

We love our D.Freemont and these new divers are no exception. 10 ATM, Sapphire crystal, 2892 ETA movement with adjustable secondary time zone, and a power reserve indicator…a great 40mm Diver with a pedigree. $750 post paid. Your choice with black water resistant strap, and black dial markers – or Cognac strap and dial with…
