Omega De Ville Tourbillon Edition

The center-mounted tourbillon of Omega is yet another instantly recognisable creation by a watchmaker with countless horological icons to its name.

The case and dial, as well as the movement’s plates and bridges are crafted from solid 18kt Sedna gold, an exceedingly rare feat.

For 2020, the Omega De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition marks the return of this extraordinary feature hitherto better known amongst Omega aficionados than the greater public. Since its first introduction in 1994, the central tourbillon has been a powerful symbol of the engineering prowess and imagination of this manufacture.

The positioning of the one-minute tourbillon — this mechanical whirlwind that places the timekeeping componentry into a spectacular rotating cage — remains, but nigh-on everything else sees an update in the De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition.

A most useful advancement in watchmaking technology given how  much more we interact with magnets than we realise during our everyday lives.
