Introducing The Omega De Ville Trésor 125th Anniversary Edition
With 2019 denoting the exceedingly significant 50th commemoration of the Moon arrival and the Speedmaster’s excursion to the lunar surface, the way that Omega is likewise praising its 125th commemoration has kind of lost all sense of direction in the blend. Indeed, no more. Today Omega has reported a couple of unique watches to stamp its first century-and-a-quarter, including this shocking three-hander, the De Ville Trésor 125th Anniversary Edition. The watch begins essentially enough with a 40mm case in yellow gold yet rapidly becomes substantially more extravagant from that point – the dial and tie are both a rich burgundy red shading that feels suitable for a celebratory watch this way. Coordinating that is a red finish emblem on the strong caseback that has a very fin de siècle vibe about it, encircled by an engraved example called damaskeening that Omega utilized on 19-ligne developments route once upon a time. Under that caseback is the all new type 8929, the absolute first physically twisted METAS-affirmed ace chronometer development from Omega (with the co-hub escapement, of course).
Yellow gold and red isn’t a shading combination that I would hope to like without a doubt, yet I need to concede I think it looks somewhat mind boggling here. Everything about this watch audaciously overflows extravagance – if Omega were to say that the watch arrived in a velvet box I wouldn’t be amazed the slightest bit (fyi, it doesn’t). Since the essential outline is so straightforward, I’d expect that the subtleties are what’s truly going to have the effect here, so I’m eager to get my hands on one of these soon enough to look at the dial completing, the manner in which the hour markers bend with the lines of the case, and the lacquer specifying on the caseback. Some portion of me is freeloaded that you can’t respect the extraordinary type through a sapphire window, however I eventually acclaim the decision of a strong, designed caseback, which is both a decent return by and large and a loyal reverence to Omega’s set of experiences of fantastic casebacks. Thusly, I’m additionally excited that Omega settled on a physically twisted type here. Without it the watch would in any case be bounty acceptable, yet for me that takes it to the following level.
