Every now and again there is a de ville trésor omega master co-axial 40 mm replica that just grabs my attention. In Baselworld this year, there were two that really stood out amoung them all, and today I wanted to write about this one: the Omega De Ville Tresor Master Co-Axial 40mm.
I don’t normally write about specific watches per se, but just a couple days ago we received this watch into stock; we had ordered it at the Baselworld show back in March. And its beauty, I feel, must be written about because simply put, it is a work of art.
The omega deville tresor replica line was first launched in 1949 and then re-introduced by Omega last year. It is available in 18K gold only, in white, yellow, or their proprietary Sedna rose gold. Each timepiece comes on a beautiful leather strap with a matching 18K gold tang-type buckle. But the really cool part is its “guts,” the engine that drives this masterpiece. Known as the Omega Calibre 8511, an in-house designed and built mechanical movement with 60 hours of power reserve, this movement looks absolutely stunning since Omega opted to show it off using a sapphire crystal case back. As seen above, this beautiful movement also features something that most don’t: it is rated to 15,000 Gauss, which basically means you will never have to worry about magnetic interference, something that can often cause your timepiece to incorrectly tell time.
The piece that we have in stock is in 18K Sedna rose gold, a proprietary gold alloy that Omega invented a few years back. To learn more about Sedna gold, click here. The colour is perfect, the design and shape of the case is slick and beautiful at 40mm, and the dial is crisp with a very readable date feature at the 6 o’clock position.
Like all pieces of art, words can only go so far. You truly have to see it in real life to appreciate its beauty. This omega replica watch, when compared to similar timepieces in other luxury brands (Rolex’s new Cellini line comes to mind), is extremely well priced at $14,700 CAD.
