Throughout OMEGA’s iconic history, the renowned Swiss watchmaker has earned a special reputation for its advancements in the art of Tourbillon craftsmanship.
Today, the next chapter in the story is unveiled with the release of the new De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition, OMEGA’s first ever Master Chronometer certified manual-winding central Tourbillon.
Not only does this certification assure the Swiss industry’s highest standard of precision and performance, but it also serves as a testament to OMEGA’s expert watchmakers, who have crafted a tourbillon cage that is able to keep rotating even under a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
The skilled watchmakers also set the Tourbillon’s speed to one revolution per minute allowing the display of seconds, which is essential for achieving certification. Two extraordinary feats in Tourbillon creation!
The impressive OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 2640 can be viewed through the sapphire crystal caseback, and adding to the luxurious beauty, the bridges and mainplate are made from 18K Sedna™ gold, and hand-bevelled for a decorative finish.
Presented on a black leather strap, the 43.00 mm central casebody, buckle logo and crown logo are made from 18K Canopus™ gold – an exclusive white gold alloy, distinctive for its high brilliance, whiteness and longevity. Meanwhile, the lugs, bezel and caseback of the watch are formed in 18K Sedna™ gold – OMEGA’s own fiery rose gold alloy.
The sun-brushed dial is also in 18K Sedna™ gold, but has been given a captivating dark shade, thanks to its black PVD treatment. Also unmistakable at the centre of the dial is the tourbillon cage with hand polished bevels in black ceramised titanium. This ingenious device drives the movements of the unique and mysterious hands, which give the timepiece its incomparable OMEGA style.
Each timepiece has been handcrafted by a select group of horologists at OMEGA’s Atelier Tourbillon, taking around an entire month of dedicated work to complete.
The new De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition comes with OMEGA’s full 5-year warranty, and is delivered in a special box with a travel pouch and watch crown winder. There is also a certificate that mentions the specific number of each watch.
The new OMEGA De Ville Tourbillon retails at approximately RM 666,500
