DE VILLE TRESOR
BLUE DENIM EFFECT
Available in store in August, the new De Ville Trésor has a slim steel profile and a denim blue face on which the pattern resembles the weave of the popular fabric.
Created in 1949, the Trésor collection of the Biel/Bienne-based watchmaker Omega has recently experienced a revival. This beautiful renaissance has transformed it into a fully-fledged range comprising elegant yet classic models, aimed at men and women, incorporated into the De Ville product family. Released at the end of May and available in store in August, the new steel De Ville Trésor joins the ranks.
What instantly catches the eye is the blue color which graces the dial and the different shades it produces when it catches the light. This oceanic face is gently domed and decorated with a textured pattern resembling the weave of a fabric: that of ever-popular denim made of thick cotton and used to produce jeans. It is punctuated with white gold baton hour markers which are skimmed over by the slender hour, minute and second hands, also forged from the same metal. It is all slightly rounded to complement the curves of the dial. At 6 o’clock a window displays the date in white Arabic numerals on a blue background to form a harmonious piece.
The polished steel case measures 40 mm in diameter and houses the Omega 8910 calibre, a manual-winding mechanical Master Chronometer-certified movement offering a power reserve of 72 hours. Its Geneva stripes can be seen through the transparent case back.
The De Ville Trésor also exists in an even more embellished version with a band of brilliant-cut diamonds set on the bezel.
