Among the novelties from Omega this week was the new Omega Trésor Power Reserve and Small Seconds, for those who are not very familiarized with this model that is less popular than the usual Speedmaster and Seamaster collections, it is a more elegant, formal and simple model (and it should be noted that only with regard to complications) that are part of the De Ville collection by Omega and that has existed since 1949. The name “Trésor” derives from “treasure” and we can understand why when we look at the collection.
This new Trésor is characterized by incorporating subdials on its face that are associated with its own name.
There are 10 new models that Omega brings to the De Ville Trésor collection, they come in a 40 mm case that can be found in different materials such as steel, yellow Gold and Sedna Gold, with a polished finish that extends through the bezel, two of models present bezel paved with 72 full-cut diamonds. All models are offered with a leather strap with a polished clasp to match the case and feature sapphire glass on both sides of the watch.
The dial that is presented in domed form is offered in a varied palette of colours such as black, grey, white (silver), blue, green and beautiful burgundy which vary depending on the material of the case, the hands as well as the applied hours indexes are in the same material as the case.
The novelty, as already mentioned, is the subdials that this model incorporates now on the dial, all new models present a small-second at 6 o’clock and five of these new models will also incorporate a power reserve at 12 o’clock. In these five models that will incorporate the power reserve indicator the logo and the name of Omega will be positioned at 3 o’clock and on the opposite side at 9 o’clock the inscription “Co-Axial” will be followed by “Master Chronometer”, while in the remaining models all these inscriptions remain in the usual position at 12 o’clock.
The new Trésor comes with In-house manual movement, Caliber 8927 in the Trésor Small Seconds and Caliber 8934 in the Trésor Power Reserve, both come with Co-Axial escapement and are Certified Master Chronometer by METAS.
Final considerations, I am not a big enthusiast of elegant watches but I consider that this is perhaps one of the great news brought by Omega and the incorporation of the subdials makes all the difference. All models are very beautiful, but without a doubt, the Sedna Gold model with the burgundy dial is the most stunning and the one that stands out the most, however, if I could choose one at this moment, it would probably be the Trésor Power Reserve on steel with silver dial, it stayed on my retina and I think it would be a watch that I would wear regularly.
