A Spotlight on the OMEGA Orbis Limited Edition Watch

Omega News & Releases

As one of the most popular and prestigious watchmaking brands in the world, OMEGA knows how to create fashionable and iconic watches with great attention to detail. Inspired by space, land and the oceans, the brand offers models with several different designs and features, perfect for both men and women with different lifestyles.

We stock many OMEGA watches at Banks Lyon, including the new Orbis limited edition model. This watch is not only a stylish addition to the collection, but also a piece designed for a great cause. Take a look at what makes it so special.

OMEGA DeVille Trésor Collection

Since 1967, the OMEGA DeVille range has been sought after by fans of the brand. Originally marketed as water-resistant, self-winding timepieces, they’re now seen as accessible for everyone with their simple, yet luxury, designs and high-performance technology.

The watches in this collection were also the first ever to have Co-Axial tech, which uses an escape wheel with the pinion mounted co-axially. Friction inside the watches is reduced, meaning the pieces are sturdier and more accurate than ever.

This new Orbis watch belongs to the OMEGA DeVille Trésor collection, a line that was introduced in 1949. The name means ‘treasure’ and refers to the precise movement of the watches in the range. Each model is sleek, confident and modern and, like other OMEGA DeVille watches, elegant, durable and precise.

The slim and contemporary cases of DeVille Trésor pieces offer both a timeless appeal and a forward-thinking touch, so you get a watch that is reminiscent of classic pieces but which will never go out of style.

OMEGA and Orbis

Many watch brands have a charity or initiative that is dear to them, and OMEGA is no different, as the watchmaker has been supporting Orbis International and its Flying Eye Hospital since 2011. The organisation is dedicated to global eye care and to improving the quality of life of people everywhere. This stunning limited-edition watch celebrates this ongoing partnership and the amazing work Orbis does.

To help the cause, OMEGA will donate part of each sale to Orbis so, when you purchase a piece, you’re helping the organisation to fight curable blindness and change lives.

The watchmaker released three new models for ladies and gents, and each piece comes with a teddy bear symbol engraved on the caseback or displayed on the dial. This teddy bear represents the toy OMEGA offers to young Orbis patients as comfort and as a way to help doctors to explain the surgery to children. After the treatment, the teddy bear receives a matching eye patch.

OMEGA has many celebrities and public figures as brand ambassadors, and the Orbis campaign is no exception. Cindy Crawford, Nicole Kidman, Sergio Garcia, Michael Phelps and Chad le Clos are doing their part to draw attention to this fantastic initiative by participating in a photoshoot with Teddy.

OMEGA DeVille Trésor Master Co-Axial Chronometer 40mm Orbis Edition

We stock the sophisticated OMEGA DeVille Trésor Master Co-Axial Chronometer watch at our stores. The elegant blue dial and bracelet contrast beautifully with the stainless steel of the 40mm case, creating an understated aesthetic that looks right at home no matter where you are – or which outfit you choose to pair it with.

The watch comes with a domed gradient blue dial with a seconds hand in varnished Orbis blue, as well as a date window with a teddy bear as a tribute to the toy OMEGA offers. This chronometer is hand-wound, COSC-certified (meaning it passed very strict tests for precision and durability) and has co-axial escapement.

Powering this model is the OMEGA Master Co-Axial Chronometer Calibre 8511 that includes an 18k red gold balance bridge. In addition, you can expect water resistance of up to 30 metres and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protection, which further contributes to this model’s longevity. What’s more, you can glimpse the movement through the transparent caseback, another great detail that OMEGA aficionados will love.

As a finishing touch, this DeVille Trésor piece also comes in a special presentation box with a teddy bear key holder, to really showcase the fantastic partnership between OMEGA and Orbis.

The OMEGA DeVille Trésor Master Co-Axial Chronometer 40mm Orbis Edition watch can be purchased from Banks Lyon for £5,560 or from £83.40 per month at 0% finance.
