Omega De Ville Watches Co-Axial Revolution

The mention of Omega De Ville watches first appeared in October 1960 in the promotion of new Seamaster monocoque models.

By 1967, the De Ville collection had become the largest group within the entire Omega range.

It was seen as youthful, varied and they suited the latest fashion trend.

In 1999, the revolutionary Co-Axial escapement was installed for the first time on the Omega De Ville, resulting in a large accuracy improvement and mechanism life.

Today, there is a larger variety of De Ville lines in which most of them use the Co-Axial escapement.

Omega De Ville Watches are perhaps the most varied mens collection from Omega in terms of design.

You will find unique models like none other of the brands ranges.

Like Omega’s other mens lines, materials featured are stainless steel or 18ct red gold dials and bracelet, real leather, alligator or calf skin strap and sapphire crystal glass.

Omega De Ville X2 Watches

The ‘X2′ line uses a stunning square dial and some models uses the same chronograph function design as seen on the ‘Co-Axial’ line. Also available is a plain version incorporating either small seconds or date display.

The most eye catching feature however is the large roman numerals on each side of the face which highlights the whole persona of the timepiece.

Although Omega De Ville watches have taken a backseat to Omega’s other collections, the new designs and Co-Axial escapement mechanism has given the De Ville range an all new and improved style and technique.However, vast improvements mean that the De Ville isn’t going to be cheap as the starting price is placed at around £3,000.
