One To Watch | Omega De Ville Tresor
Perhaps better known these days for their high-tech sports watches, as well as the infamous Moonwatch which, next year, will celebrate 50-years since it became the first watch to be worn on the Moon; it’s still true to say that when Omega does cocktail watches, it does them amazingly well.
Glamorous Cocktail Watches
The ladies version of the men’s sleek and sophisticated dress watch, the cocktail watch first became popular in the party-all-night years of the Jazz Age. Perfectly suited to the Art Deco movement which was popular at that time, these watches took a delicate and glamorous spin on the usually more functional ladies timepiece, transforming it into an elegant piece of jewellery which looked great with evening wear.
A style that has come and gone with the times, now it looks as though cocktail watches are back again and, with the new Omega De Ville Tresor ladies collection in the offering, they’re even more glamorous than ever.
Swiss Made Excellence Mixed With Modern Glamour
As is typical with this time-honored Swiss brand, whilst the inspiration for the Omega De Ville Tresor comes from their illustrious heritage, they are created with a new generation in mind; purposefully forward-thinking in their design to achieve the perfect fusion of cutting-edge watchmaking techniques with the undeniable elegance of the past.
Omega has a long tradition of creating beautiful watches for women, and the Omega Tresor watch in particular is one that we’ve simply fallen in love with.
It has to be said that, although this gorgeous watch is unabashedly feminine, it is neither cute or girly; choosing to shun the more saccharin feminine motifs for curvaceous contours and unadulterated luxury.
This is a ladies timepiece designed for sophistication and elegance.
Designed With Impeccable Attention to Detail
Everything about this watch has been crafted with a skilled eye for aesthetics and an impeccable attention to detail.
We love the modern contrast of the grey leather strap against the 18ct Sedna gold case, whilst the crown with its shining red coat of ‘HyCeram’, is set with a single diamond to ensure you’ll dazzle from every angle.
The little surprising details make this watch really special, but where the magic really happens is the signature band of diamonds which sweep around the case.
Giving this watch a dramatic yet sophisticated silhouette, the diamond paving takes a keen eye and a steady hand, and the results are truly spectacular.
Shining With its Own Personality
With a generous case size that exudes personality, especially when finished with Omega’s proprietary 18ct Sedna gold, the watch still manages to retain its refined, feminine aesthetic due to its ultra-thin profile; something which is characteristic of the De Ville collection in general.
This sleek, paired-back glamour also continues to the lacquered opaline dial; where oversized Sedna Gold Roman numerals extend boldly towards the centre of the dial, which is finished with an Omega logo and slim, Sedna gold hands.
The sense of history and heritage is always strong with any Omega watch, but here, not only have design cues been borrowed from their past, but the name ‘Tresor’ also harks back to earlier times. A name which Omega first used in 1949, back then the De Ville Tresor referenced the extremely precise movement which powered the watch.
Characterised by Sophisticated Style and Surprising Details
Today, it’s no different. Still extremely precise, the Omega 4061 quartz movement which beats inside this modern-day Tresor has been equipped with a ‘Long Life’ feature which serves to maximise the autonomy of the battery, extending its life to a remarkable 48 months.
A truly beautiful timepiece, every angle of this watch has been given care and careful consideration; not least the mirrored caseback which is engraved with an intricate flower motif.
Guaranteed to add glamour and sophistication to every occasion, this is most definitely a watch that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
A collection which will appeal to those looking for a beautifully made Swiss watch with a touch of glamour, the Omega De Ville Tresor collection starts from £3,680 or £69.00 per month with interest free credit.
