Omega’s upgraded version of a late 1940s classic: the De Ville Trésor

The De Ville Trésor of 1949, characterised by its thin golden case was named such because it safeguarded the legendary 30 mm calibre within. The De Ville Trésor is reintroduced with one of the most advanced mechanical movements the brand has ever unveiled, more than half a century later.

The De Ville Trésor features a thin case with a height of just 10.6 mm – a distinctive characteristic borrowed from its predecessor and is available in polished 18K Omega Sedna gold, 18K yellow gold or 18K white gold. The silvery opaline dial is decorated with a vintage “clous de Paris” structure, domed 18K gold indexes and a date window at 6 o’clock. The hour hand and domed minute and seconds hands are crafted from the same metallic material as the elegant case. A box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated with anti-reflective coating on both sides protects this understated dial. This exquisite timepiece is presented on a classic black or brown leather strap with a polished gold buckle. It is attached to the case with slightly curved 18K gold lugs.

The polished caseback of the De Ville Trésor is engraved with “Si14”, “Anti-magnetic” and “>15’000 Gauss”. A domed sapphire crystal provides an unobstructed view of the exclusive mechanical movement within. At the heart of this stylish timepiece is the Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8511, Si14 silicon balance spring, a three-level Co-Axial escapement and OMEGA’s exclusive anti-magnetic technology. This officially certified chronometer is resistant to strong magnetic fields – even those greater than 15,000 gauss – and boasts the same level of precision that its Co-Axial cousins are known for. The De Ville Trésor is offered with a full four-year warranty and is water resistant to 3 bar.
