Omega De Ville Tourbillon Review
The DeVille Tourbillon by Omega represents a collection that expresses a sublime art of watchmaking. The timepieces in this collection are handcrafted by a special team of horologists. The DeVille Central Tourbillon is a unique wristwatch all around the world and it is a timepiece that has the tourbillon cage, which rotates every minute and offsets the manner on which the gravity affects the watch performance.
The case and the bezel on this collection of timepieces are expressive and with minimalist beauty. The lugs are impressive and act as a form of a frame for the case and bezel. The bezel looks narrow due to the profile that is domed inboard and the flat outboard and there are two sapphires at the center of the dial. This collection with its minimalist but yet the vintage design is truly remarkable especially knowing that Omega is paying great attention to every detail and every timepiece is its own piece of art handcrafted by the most skillful watchmakers.
History of the DeVille Central Tourbillon
The collection DeVille originates from 1960 and at its beginnings, it started as a collection under the title of Seamasters and stayed as such until 1967. DeVilletimepieces by Omega gave to the collection a classic appearance, a more vintage look and even Pope Paul John the second loved and wore these watches.
Talking about the tourbillon movement which is specific for Omega we can say that in the period from 1994 to 2010 seven model versions were released. Omega advanced this movement up to 2600A Caliber in the year of 1997. Previously separate now the winding system which was automatic, was integrated within the movement. The original designs of the Omega Tourbillon also gradually changed. Later in 2002 Omega released another Calibre 2600B that had rated Chronometer, which was additionally advanced and developed in 2004 and finally in 2007 when the Co-Axial escapement was included in the tourbillon. This assisted in the thematic integration of the Central Tourbillon within the movement of the timepieces.
Dazzling Technology And Design Of Tourbillon Collection
The DeVille Central Omega Tourbillon collection creates a great combination between the superb technology of tourbillon and even greater and subtle elements of the design. The extraordinary performance of the chronometer was made possible due to the authentic calibers 2637, 2636 and 2635, all of them Co-Axial and in addition possessing an escapement that made far-reaching changes in the mechanical movements of the watches.
The Central Tourbillon is a version that is extraordinary as the watchmakers paid a great deal of attention while creating this piece of art. To create this timepiece there is a need of 500 hours of work on each piece individually and the masters who create it insert their initials on the plate of the tourbillon. The skeletonized version does not contain any material that is not necessary on the bridge and plates and if any it is removed by the watchmakers who later bevel the edges. At the point of servicing the Omega Central Tourbillon, the watchmakers that designed the watches again review the same pieces and we can conclude that this collection of timepieces is something exquisite and reaches the peak of Omega as a legendary and reputable brand of watches.
The OMEGA’s Collection of Central Tourbillon contains some truly remarkable masterpieces. Each and every timepiece is an exquisite blend of breath-taking design and horological innovation. This family contains 3 main masterpieces in a limited edition series. The collection contains watches designed from 2002 to 2006 and the size is 38.7 mm of the case with surprisingly slim dimensions of 13.3 millimeters that make it perfect for comfortable daily wear on your wrist. The bezel profile is slightly sloped and domed. The distance between the lug to lug is 19 cm.
The True Beauty Of The Omega Central Deville Tourbillon Bracelets
The bracelets are leather straps that can be in different colors corresponding to the dial. The straps are incredibly well-made with quality stitches with a large rectangular square pattern on the leather strap while on the underside the leather skin is extremely comfortable and does not cause any irritation against the skin.
The buckle is a common and typical design for Omega with twin trigger deployment. This twin deployment makes the buckle secure so you can make sure that the strap stays comfortably and secure on the hand. The extra length can be tucked under the buckle so it would not be on your way. The bracelet is heavy enough not to cause unnecessary movement of the watch on the hand but light enough for comfortable wear.
Design of the Cases
The design of the cases of the timepieces comes from the authentic one dating from the 1994 Deville Central Tourbillon. It is robust and it looks like the ring is framed within the lugs hoods and bezel that is strongly pronounced. It boasts a classic style in reference to the design and as said this is a result of the luscious lugs. There is a kind of 2 crowns - one placed on the case back whose function is to set the time functions and the other crown that is positioned on the usual place that is used solely for winding of the watch by turning the crown in a counterclockwise direction.
Mesmerizing Tourbillon Cage
The cage where the tourbillon is positioned is mesmerizing and you can find it at the dial’s center. The tourbillon makes a full circle in one minute. The hand that is used for telling the seconds is in a form of the symbol of Omega and it is connected tightly to the cage. There are two sapphire discs that are superimposed and that feature hands used for telling the minutes and hour in the form of arrowheads. The tourbillon has a central role and the hands for the minute and the hour are positioned at the tourbillon carriage edge so they do not obstruct the tourbillon and at the same time offer great legibility of the time.
The Design of the Dial
The dial features a kind of radial geo-shaped pattern and in the middle of the dial, there is a central track like a ring made of gold. This track features some divots that do not have equal diameter and depth and their function is to be an effective track for seconds. There is a regulating scale that if you want to tune it you can move backward and forwards while the regulating index serves as a second hand. The dial represents a set of sapphires which are superimposed one over each other. The hands for telling the hours and minutes are circular sapphires that go around the dial and you can actually hear the tourbillon movement.
The Movement of the Central Tourbillon Collection
The watches from these series have an automatic caliber that belongs to the 2600 series and offers 45 hours power reserve if entirely wound. Unlike the other calibers fitted in Omega watches, these cannot be observed as the case back is not transparent but as said above with beautiful engraving. The movement is self-winding and has Co-Axial escapement. The movement is PVD coated and features spiral patterns, mechanism, and bridges that are polished with weight which is platinum oscillating. The winding is efficient thanks to this platinum mass. In addition to the functions, the watches are also certified chronometers.
The watches are all water-resistant up to 100 feet and suitable for wearing when swimming. The bracelets are also well adaptable to the wet conditions and resistant to tear and wear of the time even if you use the watch during swimming.
