Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega has now crafter the brand’s first-ever manual winding tourbillion to receive Master Chronometer certification.
The new feat was achieved through the latest De Ville model, which features a central tourbillon at the heart of the dial, further spotlighted by a fluted gold ring around the intricate mechanism. Its 43mm case is constructed from 18K Canopus gold, paired luxuriously with an 18K Sedna gold bezel, with the same material used for the branding and text on the sun-brushed black dial. Inside, the Master Chronometer Calibre 2640 movement powers the watch, boasting a three-day power reserve which can be viewed via the indicator through the windowed caseback, while the tourbillon not only negates the effect of gravity but can withstand magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss. The movement itself also features 18K Sedna gold bridges and main plate, an exquisite touch to an elegant timepiece. Completing the watch is a black alligator strap matching the color of the dial.
Those interested in Omega’s De Ville Central Tourbillon Numbered Edition can head over to the company’s website to learn more now. It’s estimated to retail for approximately CHF 162,750 ($172,000 USD).
