When it was introduced in 2007, the OMEGA De Ville Hour Vision heralded a new era for OMEGA: it introduced the first in-house Co-Axial mechanical movement. The De Ville Co-Axial is a celebration of classic watch design and innovative mechanical watchmaking.
"...exactly what a classic mechanical wristwatch for men should be."
The watches in the OMEGA De Ville Co-Axial collection eloquently express exactly what a classic wristwatch for men should be: a traditional 41 mm case in either 18K red gold or stainless steel, a pure two-zone dial with beautifully executed Roman numerals and one of the finest mechanical watch movements ever produced.
The De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300/9301, the chronograph member of the Co-Axial family. The dial is enhanced by two sub-dials. One, placed at the 9 o’clock position, features the small seconds hand and the other, at 3 o’clock, innovatively includes both the chronograph minute and hour hands for intuitive reading of the elapsed time.
"...a celebration of classic design and innovative mechanical watchmaking."
The OMEGA De Ville Co-Axial is also available with an annual calendar function, meaning that the date only needs to be set once a year, on the first of March. It is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8601 and delivered with either a matching bracelet or a black or brown leather strap. The De Ville Co-Axial Annual Calendar wristwatch has month and date apertures at 3 o’clock.
