Combining classic elegance of De Ville Collection with a refreshing dose of modernity, Omega created a boldly looking sport chronograph for men. Besides its catchy design, De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope watch is also renowned by its hi-end functionality, precision and durability.
Based on the highly successful design of De Ville Rattrapante Chronograph, various versions of De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope are more than able to satisfy even the pickiest buyers. At a single glance, you could be seduced by a striking dial, no matter if it is brown, matt black or silver. Besides, each variation is nicely combined with different colors of a sub-dial’s field, which leaves a variety of impressions. They do not even look like the members of the same watch line. Furthermore, the color and the material of hour markers, Arabic numerals and watch hands depend on a specific material of a case.
The dial of De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope is designed to be highly luminous, with its hand-applied hour markers and numerals that catch the light, as well as applied Arabic numerals inside sub-dials. Besides, hour and minute hands are luminous, while the central chronograph hand comes with a tip painted in red.
Although they possess beautiful classic looks, the high performances of three crono counters (or recorders, as Omega calls them for this particular model) imply the use of the latest technology. The 30-minute recorder is at the 3 o’clock position, the continuous seconds sub-dial is at the 9 o’clock, while the amazing retrograde 12-hour recorder with a double arc window takes the 6 o’clock position. The date window is also authentic, able to give information about the exact date in every moment, not depending on the position of hands. It is located between 11 and 12 o’clock positions and it displays the preceding and the following dates.
An exclusive Omega’s automatic Calibre 3313 provides amazing accuracy, stability and durability which are proven with the official Swiss chronometer-testing institute certification. It features the brand’s most advanced Co-Axial escapement technology, as well as a column-wheel system that guarantees the high precision of chrono operations. This self-winding mechanism can work up to 52 hours when the watch is not worn.
De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope has a mid-sized, 41 mm case, crafted either in stainless steel, yellow or red gold, each combined with a black alligator strap, a brown calfskin strap or a stainless steel bracelet. The case back is transparent, allowing a clear view on the mechanical perfection inside the case.
Although it is hard to pick the favorite one inside this powerful line, my choice would probably be the model under the reference number 418.104.22.168.04.001, with a red gold case, a completely white dial and an elegant brown leather strap. Besides this stunning timepiece, I could not take my eyes from the stainless steel version of De Ville Co-Axial Chronoscope (422.214.171.124.13.001), especially because of its outstanding polished bracelet that fits perfectly with the brushed surfaces of the case.
