Omega’s new De Ville Trèsor Ladies’ collection melds easy elegance with effortless modernity for watches with unparalleled versatility.
Gazing straight into the camera, Kaia Gerber’s eyes seem to down from within monochrome frame, expertly captured by renowned fashion photographer and master of Peter Lindbergh. She’s a picture perfect paradigm of ease and assurance in her oversized pantsuit; exuding quiet confidence that dares you to her she is—sentiments that are equally echoed and accentuated by the watch wears: De Ville Trésor Ladies timepiece belonging Omega’s latest family line.
And why not? The Gerbers have as much modelling pedigree as they do a horological one. After all, the siblings’ mother, Cindy Crawford, has been an Omega brand ambassador for the past 23 years and, as Kaia readily shares: “I love Omega, just because I grew up with it and I feel like I’ve always been surrounded by everyone there. We’ve been a family from since I can remember.” So when it comes to watches, Kaia clearly knows what she’s talking about.
One look at the De Ville Trésor and it’s easy to see why it would be a Gerber favourite (or any woman’s, for that matter). The round-faced watch presents pared down looks that have been stripped of all extraneous details. The focus, instead, has been to accentuate and refine its very essence with painstaking care, from the transferred and embossed Roman numerals that accompany the watch’s slim, polished hands, to the gleaming crown decorated with a highly stylised diamond-studded flower (comprising five Omega logos) in red, liquid ceramic. Further evidence that Omega has pulled out all the stops for its latest star can be found on the watch’s mirrored caseback, which has been engraved with a captivating “Her Time” spirograph design of mathematical precision.
With this watch, it’s clearly the details that matter, resulting in a timeless design that is proposed with a thoroughly modern attitude. Easy elegance is balanced with calculated refinement, luxurious touches with a minimalist tenet… It’s the masterful juxtaposition of beautiful contradictions into a unifying whole. The new Trésor is not a watch that shines with flamboyance. Instead, it’s a watch that was designed to accentuate the individual and unique style of its wearer, thoughtfully and conscientiously through a ultra-slim design that wears like a second skin.
A high-precision quartz movement (calibre 4061) powers each of the nine designs in the collection, which come in either stainless steel or Omega’s beguiling Sedna™ gold. Diamonds add a touch of everyday glamour, while satin or leather straps and several dial colourways ensure women find a piece that suits their style temperament to a tee. And in true Omega form, there are also two sizes to choose from—39mm and 36mm—just so you have a watch that vides as accurate a time as it s a comfort fit. Understated, modern stylishly versatile, the De Ville Trésor ies’ collection is continuation the Omega acy that sees it ring everything a woman wants watch—and more.
