Inspired by the fifties model of the same name, the Omega De Ville Trésor is a slim, vintage style wristwatch featuring a non-magnetic, Master Co-Axial movement that is, unusually for a modern Omega, manually wound.
The Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial is not the only new Omega at Baselworld 2014 that looks to the past. With the aesthetics of mid-twentieth century wristwatches, the Omega De Ville Trésor is an elegant 40 mm wide, with a thin bezel, hobnail guilloche dial and a box-shaped sapphire crystal. Inside is the new Master Co-Axial calibre 8511. Unlike most Omega Co-Axial movements which are automatic, this is hand-wind with a 60 hour power reserve. Like the rest of the Master Co-Axial movements, this has a Si14 silicon hairspring and resistance to magnetic fields of over 15,000 Gauss, the highest on the market. And because the De Ville Trésor has a gold case, the balance bridge is in solid red gold, a hallmark of all Co-Axial timepieces in gold.
The dial has a silvered finished and is decorated with a Clous de Paris guilloche. Very slightly domed to complete the vintage look, the dial has gold indices and hands.
Available only in yellow, white or Sedna rose gold, the De Ville Trésor will retail for 17,850 Singapore dollars (~US$14,200) in yellow or Sedna gold. The white gold version is 19,400 Singapore dollars (~US$15,400).
