    Hey, I was wanting to know what makes a Seamaster a Deville. Is it an automatic movement? I have seen Deville dials on manual winding watches. Are those redials? Just wondering what makes a Deville a Deville. Thanks, Tyler

    There are manual winding Seamaster de Ville too.
    You don't see Automatic on the dial.

    So is the Deville supposed to be the 'dress model' ?

    I guess so, there were Seamasters, then Seamaster De Villes then straight De Villes, initially the Seamaster was sort of the non-chronometer companion to the Seamaster but the Seamaster lines were a bit more chunky and sporty than the Constellation as well. The De Villes had thinner lugs and more dress watch looks about them but were non chronmeters.
