Don Draper, leading man and style icon of AMC’s “Mad Men,” once again sported an OMEGA Seamaster De Ville 1966 during a recent episode. The episode, “Field Trip,” from the show’s 7th and final season, features a Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm) at his apartment before returning to work following a forced leave of absence.
The scene captures Draper’s apprehension as he checks his watch, the OMEGA Seamaster De Ville, several times. This is not the first time Don’s favorite watch received a close up during the show. Don wore the same watch during a pivotal episode of Season 5.
Born in 1960 as part of the larger Seamaster family, the De Ville provided the slender refinement of a dress watch with the benefits of robust water-resistance. The De Ville remained in the Seamaster family until 1967 at which point it left its “older sister” commencing the eponymous, stand-alone De Ville line.
