A TREASURE IN THE DRESSING ROOM
An astute dosage of metal and precious stones, both classical and sophisticated, the new woman’s watch by the brand from Bienne brings together the world of watchmaking and fashion
A few weeks before the opening of BaselWorld 2018, Omega is introducing the most recent arrival in its De Ville Trésor collection, a woman’s watch with an attractive design. Two new references have been added to a family of timepieces with a classic look. With the De Ville Trésor, the Bienne watchmaker is aiming at today’s woman, who likes to treat herself and go beyond fashion, preferring a timeless, but sophisticated style.
At first sight, the two watches seem similar, but the differences appear when you look more closely. First of all, the case width varies depending on the metal it is made from: 39mm for the steel version (which has the advantage of matching all clothes styles and colours) and 35mm for the SednaTM gold version (more precious and warmer). The differences continue with the slightly curved dial and the Roman numerals, appearing like the sun’s rays converging towards the centre, where the the alpha- and stick-shaped hands are placed.
On the gold version, the dial is silvery white, the hour rim features golden applied indices and the hour and minute hands are also golden. The steel version, meanwhile, has a lacquered white dial containing blue indicators and hands.
On the watch case, two lines of brilliant-cut diamonds of different diameters run along the bezel and extend to the upper left-hand horn (from 8 o’clock) and the lower right-hand horn (from 2 o’clock). Last but not least, the crown echoes the shape of a flower with five bright-red ceramic petals and the centre set with a diamond.
Price: 8,600 CHF (SednaTM gold) – 5,100 CHF (steel)
