An Omega gentleman’s 18ct Sedna red gold De Ville Central Tourbillon is going under the hammer during Fellows’ August 13 Watch Sale.
The elegant red gold watch is number 2 of 50 limited edition watches created and is estimated at $37,000 – $47,000 (£30,000 – £40,000) in the sale.
Omega describes the watch as a “stunning, modern example” which “encapsulates the beauty and innovation of watches by Omega.”
It has a signed automatic calibre 2600, which was the world’s first central tourbillon movement, and a silvered dial with baton hour markers, two superimposed sapphire discs on which the hour and minute hands are etched.
The timepiece also has subsidiary running seconds with exhibition cut out to the centre revealing tourbillon escapement and is fitted to a signed 18ct Sedna red gold bracelet with a folding clasp.
Michael Jagiela, Senior Watch Specialist at Fellows Auctioneers, said: “I’m thrilled we have an extremely rare Omega along with countless other amazing watches up for auction in August.
“This edition was limited to only 50 and I’m sure we will get lots of people come to view and bid on the watch.
“The movement in Omega watches such as this is fascinating, with it containing calibre 2600, the world’s first central tourbillon movement.”
