See Omega’s De Ville Central Tourbillon

24th October 2014


It’s a watch masquerading as a piece of art. The 950 platinum bezel, case-body and lugs are paved (quite literally!) with 170 baguette-cut diamonds, topped with a whopping 289 single-cut diamonds that adorn the Co-Axial calibre, bringing the total diamonds to 10ct.

The tourbillon is visible through the sapphire glass with anti-reflective treatment on both sides and the titanium tourbillon cage makes one revolution every minute. Rose gold indexes at12, three and six o’clock decorate the dial as do the brushed rose gold hour and minute hands and the seconds hand set in the tourbillon cage.

It goes without saying that this is a limited edition piece – the number (just one of three) is engraved by hand on the case-back. You’ll also find the watchmakers initials engraved onto the back of the tourbillon’s main-plate, distinguishing each individual piece.
