In 2007 Omega introduced a new addition to its iconic De Ville family – the Co-Axial Chronoscope collection. The idea for the collection’s creation was suggested by the success of the De Ville Rattrapante collection. The mechanical self-winding De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope chronograph for men is driven by Omega in-house Co-Axial Escapement technology.
The new Omega watch model provides supreme visibility of its timekeeping functions. The Co-Axial Chronoscope features boldly masculine design, having added contemporary flair to the classic De Ville family.
The dial of the Omega watch offers the choice between matt black, red and silver shades. It catches attention due to nicely contrasting sub-dials offering perfect reading of the chronograph functions. The dial is characterized by meticulous attention to detail inherited from the Omega De Ville Rattrapante line. It sports three-dimensional light-catching hour markers and numbers.
The three big-sized overlapping sub-dials of the Omega watch are presented through a 30-minute recorder, a 12-hour counter featuring a double arc window at 6 o’clock and a continuous seconds counter. The precision chronograph readings of the De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope are provided by the applied Arabic numerals.
The Omega watch’s ‘truncated sector’ date window is aimed at supreme legibility. The date window holds a strategic position between 11 and 12 o’clock, offering at-a-glance reading. It also shows the preceding and following dates for the case when the watch’s hands hide the current date numeral. The Chronoscope’s luminous hour and minute hands as well as the red tip of the chronograph hand are used for utmost legibility even in bad light conditions.
The Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope is equipped with the exclusive self-winding Omega caliber 3313 based upon the brand’s groundbreaking Co-Axial escapement technology. Omega watchmakers developed the technology able to greatly reduce friction in the escapement, thus providing enhanced reliability and accuracy. The Co-Axial escapement has become one of the major horological discoveries over the last 250 years. It was first applied in Omega De Ville family.
Column-wheel chronographs are appreciated as the finest movements as they incorporate the column-wheel system that guarantees a smooth start to the sweep of the seconds hand when the chronograph function is activated. The mechanism also offers precision stop and reset functions independent from the watch’s major timekeeping function. Real watch connoisseurs may admire the luxury finishes of the movement through the transparent case back.
Due to its accuracy and reliability the Omega caliber 3313 won the prestigious COSC certification awarded by the official Swiss chronometer-testing institute. It provides the advantage of a 52-hour power reserve and 100-meter water-resistance.
The case of the new Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope, measuring 41 mm in diameter, is crafted in either polished or brushed 18K yellow or red gold and stainless steel. It sports the polished brand’s logo on the double gasket crown. Its slightly domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is provided with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The Omega watch is secured to the wrist with a black alligator or brown calfskin strap with a fold-over clasp.
