In addition to several timepieces already released by Omega in 2021, the brand has announced the release later this year of the new De Ville Trésor Power Reserve, a dressy timepiece, featuring a useful power reserve complication. When Omega’s first Trésor watches appeared in 1949, they became known for their beautifully slim cases in gold. Continuing that heritage, the newest collection includes 40 mm watches crafted in either 18K yellow gold or 18K Sedna gold. Choices in stainless steel will also be available.
As part of this unique update, these Trésor watches include a Small Seconds display at 6H, while some also feature a Power Reserve display at 12H. In this case, the unique positioning means that the Omega logo has been transferred to 3H. The subdial keeps track of the watch’s power reserve, which is a full 72 hours. Ticking inside the watch is Omega’s in-house caliber 8935. A hand-wound movement, the caliber 8935 is a technical powerhouse. The movement operates at 3.5Hz and offers a power reserve of 3 days using two barrels. It is METAS certified, features a free-sprung balance with a silicon balance spring, and can withstand 15000 Gauss of magnetic resistance. The Omega De Ville Trésor will be available for purchase in September 2021.
