OMEGA introduced the first self-winding Central Tourbillon wristwatch in 1994, with the Tourbillon carriage positioned in the middle of the watch. A decade later, in 2004, OMEGA would produce the first Tourbillon wristwatch to be Chronometer certified.
2020 and Omega releases another industry changing Tourbillon with a 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. OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 2640 can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back, along with its 3-day power reserve indicator. To add luxurious beauty, the bridges and main plate are made from 18K Sedna™ gold, and have been hand-bevelled for a decorative finish.
De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition is presented on a black leather strap, the 43.00 mm central case body, 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 case back 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.
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.
