The Trésor collection was first launched by Omega in 1949. Now more than half a century later, it continues to impress by housing some of today’s most currently advanced mechanical movements. Let’s focus in on these two sophisticated dress watch options available in steel with date or gold without a date window.
The case for this Omega model is characterized by its thin and elegantly shaped elements. The 40mm case is available in stainless-steel (blue dial) or 18k Sedna™ gold (grey dial) with a transparent exhibition case back that allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement, which features a free-sprung balance embellished by a rhodium plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque;
While the grey dial model features a special luxury finish with a matching Sedna gold balance bridge. This Omega patented composite designated as Sedna™ gold is based on a rose gold alloy which blends palladium, copper and yellow gold.
Time is exhibited on a domed blue patterned dial with 18k white gold applique hour index markers (that have also been domed to properly mesh with the dials slight curvature), followed by smaller white printed minute index markers.
The central hour, minutes and seconds hands have also been crafted out of 18k white gold. There is also a date aperture at the 6 o’clock position with white numerals, but Omega wisely opted to have the aperture match the dials blue hue, for a more uniform look.
Alternatively you can opt for the more expensive 18k Sedna™ gold model exhibiting time on a grey enamel dial that was achieved via a “Grand Feu“ procedure. Instead of painting patterns this decorative technique is created by applying oxides to the dial, which are then fired up at high temperatures until these characteristic patterns emerge. The dial also includes enamel prints, as well as hands and hour index markers made in 18k Sedna™ gold; plus the logo and the wording in the dial were achieved via a “Petit Feu” technique. There is no date aperture on this edition.
Both versions are topped by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance on these watches are capable of reaching up to 30 meters (100 feet).
