Launched in 1994, the Omega De Ville Prestige is positively not the brand’s generally striking or most coveted watch, eclipsed by the icons that are the Speedmaster and Seamaster. Nevertheless, this work of art, exquisite watch makes for a pleasant choice if you’re on the lookout for an all-rounder with a productive development and Omega’s normal unquestionable quality (and at a decent cost as well). For 2020, the brand adds new dial and color combinations to the De Ville Prestige.
Well-proportioned, with its 39.5mm case, the De Ville Prestige is a work of art, immortal and prudent watch that doesn’t need to say something. It has the correct measurement of tastefulness to make it to the wrist of knowing fans with various choices, whether colors, dial designs or materials offered. This year, the collection is amplified with untouched exemplary colors and two-tone combinations, for an additional dash of luxury.
The primary oddity for these new Omega De Ville Prestige is the dark or white dials with a honeycomb design, connected to a fringe railroad minute track. The dial is decorated with the collection’s exemplary indexes, a combination of rounded Roman numerals and spots. Depending on the form, the indexes can be rhodium-plated (dark dial), dim coated (white dial in steel) or gold-plated to coordinate the two-tone case. A similar treatment is applied to the newly designed leaf-formed hands, supplanting the standard spear molded hands. The date window has likewise been moved to the 6 o’clock position – following the style of most current Omega watches.
These new dials can be picked in a few materials and the case is accessible in steel, in steel and 18k yellow gold and in steel and 18K red gold. A domed sapphire gem sits on the back while the caseback is shut and embellished with the symbolic emblem for the De Ville Prestige collection – Chronos, the God of time. The four new models are worn on a metallic 7-connect arm band – in steel or with yellow or red accents.
Inside the instance of the Omega De Ville Prestige is the Caliber 2500, a programmed development made in-house by Omega (an exceptionally adjusted ETA 2892-A2), outfitted with the brand’s Co-Axial escapement. This type runs at 25,200 vibrations/hour and stockpiles to 48 hours of force hold. It is a chronometer-ensured movement.
