Following the launch of the De Ville Trésor 125th Anniversary limited edition earlier in the year, Omega has now unveiled two similar regular production models, both equipped with the same hand-wound Master Chronometer Co-Axial movement.
While the limited edition was in yellow gold paired with a red enamel dial, the new models are in either Sedna gold – a proprietary blend of gold, copper, and palladium – coupled with a fired grey enamel dial, or in stainless steel with a blue, stamped brass dial.
As is characteristic of Trésor line, the watches are a blend of mid-century aesthetics and modern dimensions.
The case is 40mm in diameter with a slim bezel and a box-type sapphire crystal, which is further enhanced by domed indexes.
On the Sedna gold version, the applied indexes are all made of the same gold alloy, while the logo and text are painted in fired enamel achieved using the Petit Feu technique.
The steel version, on the other hand, features applied, 18k white gold indexes and printed markings.
The stainless steel model is equipped with the hand-wound cal. 8910, which has a date display at six o’clock.
The gold model is powered by essentially the same movement, but upgraded with a balance bridge in 18k Sedna gold. It’s known as the cal. 8929, the same movement found in the 125th Anniversary limited edition.
Their features include a free-sprung balance wheel and a Si14 silicon hairspring. But most crucially, various parts of the escapement are made from proprietary alloys that boost magnetism resistance to over 15,000 Gauss – a level matched by no other watch on the market.
Importantly, both movements are METAS-certified Master Chronometers, furnished with all of Omega’s cutting-edge tech. An initiative started by Omega and the Swiss Federal Institute of Meteorology (METAS), the Master Chronometer certification adds tangible value to a watch, as it tests finished watches comprehensively for functionality, and not just timekeeping.
