Omega De Ville watches were originally marketed as water resistant, self-winding timepieces from 1960. Their varied and adaptable designs became very popular and by 1967, it had become the largest range within the Omega brand. The accessibly simple design of the case and its variability sealed it as a leading timepiece among luxury watch brands.
No stranger to innovation, the Omega De Ville watch was the first watch on the planet to use Co-Axial technology, which was developed to be used in large scale production in partnership with Dr. George Daniels, a British watchmaker. The main benefits to using this technology are its main feature, using an escape wheel with the escape pinion mounted co-axially. This meant that friction was reduced within the watch’s movement, which in turn produced a more accurate and hard-wearing timepiece.
This movement has been updated again recently, with the new Omega Co-Axial Escapement movement being more precise than ever. The Omega De Ville Chronoscope, in addition to using this new movement, also has a more modern appearance with greater colour and design choices.
There are several models included in the Omega De Ville range, which include the Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph, the Omega De Ville Prestige Quartz, and the Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope.
