Introducing The Omega De Ville Trésor 40mm With Manually-Wound Master Chronometer Caliber

Introducing The Omega De Ville Trésor 40mm With Manually-Wound Master Chronometer Caliber

Brisk Take

A few months back, Omega delivered a restricted release Trésor to commend the 125th commemoration of the Omega brand name. On the off chance that you don’t recall, it very well may be on the grounds that it happened the exact day as Omega reporting they’d continue creation of the type 321 , which clearly got significantly more consideration. This Trésor was in strong gold and presented another type, the 8929, the absolute direct twisted development to get the Master Chronometer certification. 

What we have here is a bunch of five new mainline Trésor watches that use a similar fundamental plan and a similar magnificent development. There are two models accessible in steel (with white or finished blue dials), two models accessible in gold (with dim or white lacquer dials), and one model accessible with a jewel bezel (in steel with a blue dial). All are 40mm across and utilize a straightforward three-hand show with focus seconds and a date window wrapped up a six o’clock – on the whole examples the date plate coordinates the shade of the dial. 

While the watches are unquestionably attractive outwardly, the development inside is perhaps the most fascinating things here. The hand-wound type 8910 (8929 in the gold models) is Master Chronometer guaranteed by METAS and is done in a style that is become one of Omega’s marks throughout the most recent couple of years. To the extent volume-delivered developments go, the completing is top of the heap, and the variant of the development in the gold releases has a gold equilibrium connect for some extra flair.

Notably, costs for the steel models start at $6,500 and go up to $15,000 for the gold models with veneer dials, making them even more appealing.

Beginning Thoughts

For some unique circumstance, I saw these Trésor models as a component of a beautiful exceptional multi day program put on by Swatch Group in Switzerland as an option in contrast to Baselworld. I saw a lot of watches in a brief timeframe, which is a certain fire formula for what I like to call “item blur” –at one point, all that begins to mix together. 

With that as a top priority, the new hand-wound Trésor is a genuine champion for me. This is a forefront taking on quite possibly the most customary styles of watches, the generally useful three-hand-date. (I wouldn’t exactly call these dress watches, however you could absolutely wear them thusly.) The case’s lines are right on target, the dials are sharp and decipherable, and I’m even persuaded that the date show is a decent expansion here. For $6,500, I’m unable to think about a watch of this style that offers more an incentive for cash from anybody. As far as I might be concerned, these Trésor models set another benchmark that will be difficult for competitors to match.

One thing to note here: If you’re taking a gander at these watches and are figuring “Stand by, haven’t they been around for some time?” you’re almost right. The old form of the 40mm Trésor ( which we explored back in 2014 ) was not Master Chronometer guaranteed – Omega just began working with METAS to give watches this assignment in 2015. The “Expert” on the dials of the more established forms recently demonstrated that they were impervious to magnetic fields up to 15,000 Gauss, not that they had the extraordinary certificate. So while the watches you see here are natural from multiple points of view, they’re pressing much more force under the hood.
