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 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.
