Dinning out might not be on the menu right now, but a world where indoor gatherings are again allowed is hopefully on the horizon. Once such occasions arrive we’ll want to look our best and Omega has released a new dress watch with that in mind. Their “De Ville Trésor” has been given a power reserve and a sub-dial, while retaining all the understated elegance its already admired for.Case wise this model has preserved its 40mm case with thin and elegantly shaped elements. It comes equipped with an embossed Ω on the setting crown and mounted to the case is a shiny polished bezel, matching each versions case material of either: stainless-steel, yellow-gold, or 18k Sedna™ gold.
This Omega patented composite designated as Sedna™ gold is based on a rose gold alloy which blends palladium, copper and yellow gold. On the filp-side we encounter a transparent exhibition case back that allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement, which features a free-sprung balance embellished by a rhodium plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque, plus a contrasting balance bridge in 18k Sedna gold. Time is exhibited on a domed silver, black, or blue dial with metal appliqué hour index markers (that have also been domed to properly mesh with the dials slight curvature) matching each case alloy, followed by smaller printed minute index markers.As mentioned above these new additions to the “De Ville Trésor” model line have added two sub-dials: a small seconds on the lower-half, while the upper-half has a power-reserve. Both these sub-dials have snailed interiors and subtle black circular markings on the silver dial edition.The central hour, minutes and sub-seconds hands have also been crafted out of either: stainless-steel, yellow, or 18k Sedna™ gold. There isn’t any luminescent material to be seen on these watches, thus preserving their discreet proper attire look.All versions are topped by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance on these watches is capable of reaching up to 30 meters (100 feet).
