OMEGA De Ville Central Tourbillon
Over 200 years ago since the tourbillon was created by Abraham Louis Breguet, and it still remains one of the most prestigious and iconic aspect of watchmaking today. Omega has added a contemporary twist with its latest Central Tourbillon wristwatch that is complete with a golden case, Co-Axial calibre, and a wonderfully accented by baguette diamonds.
The modern dial holds the beautiful tourbillon, which is visible through the anti-reflective sapphire glass. The titanium tourbillon cage is found at the center of the watch and makes one revolution every minute. The tourbillon bridges and plates are finished in a striking chocolate brown color, which is achieved by the treatment of physical vapor deposition (PVD). The bridges are sun brushed which adds texture and depth.
The 18k red gold alpha shaped seconds hand is set within the tourbillon cage, and the 18k red gold “flying” alpha shaped hour and minute hands are etched onto the sapphire crystal. Facetted 18k red gold indexes are applied at the 12, 3, and 6 o’clock respectively. The bezel is adorned with 24 baguette diamonds cut into trapezoidal forms, which makes it shine brilliantly.
The De Ville Central Tourbillon will have a limited production of eight pieces. Each timepiece will have its limited edition number that is engraved on the side of the casebody. Also, each individual piece will have the watchmaker’s initials engraved on the back of the tourbillon’s main plate. Completing the overall look is the luxurious brown leather strap with a polished fold over clasp.
