Omega has added a $168,000 central tourbillon model to its De Ville family.

The watches are handmade at Omega’s Atelier Tourbillon and take around one month to make each piece.

Each will be uniquely numbered, but it is not a limited edition watch.

An edge-to-edge sapphire caseback gives the perfect view into Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 2640, which has been upgraded with hand-finished 18ct Sedana gold bridges and mainplate and displays its 3-day power reserve from the back.

The sun-brushed dial of the 43mm watch is also in 18ct Sedna red gold, but has been turned a darker shade by a black PVD treatment.

Its central tourbillon incorporates a seconds hand and drives the hours and minutes hands, all of which are in the same 18ct Sedna gold.

  1. For me this is a supurb example of understated elegance. Surely this watch would be a talking point at any intimate gathering.

  2. Stunning piece. Good to see Omega still producing watches in this segment of the market – along with their more mainstream offerings..

  3. This is one of those rare watches where the simple act of checking the time will comprise of a number of seconds just reflecting on the elegant beauty of the watch, a single second getting the time followed by a long, pause of satisfaction that this watch is on the wearers wrist. A stunning piece that makes a world class statement.
