De Ville: Omega's Dress Watch Collection
Omega's De Ville collection has been known for its classic, elegant watches for decades. Handmade calibers with tourbillons are among the gems of this series, as are the various opulent diamond-studded women's watches.
Classic Design, Modern Technology
The Omega De Ville collection offers a wide selection of traditional designs paired with modern calibers. It ranges from simple three-hand models with a date display to platinum tourbillon watches. There are also women's watches available, many of which are studded with diamonds. Due to their classic designs, most De Ville timepieces are best suited to formal occasions. They are the perfect accessories for the office, a wedding, or an evening event.
Thanks to their chronometer-certified Co-Axial calibers, De Ville watches are extremely precise, reliable, and efficient. Top models come with Co-Axial Master Chronometer certification and can resist magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. While they may look different than the sport models in the Speedmaster and Seamaster collections, the watches in the De Ville series are their technical equals.
If you are looking for a classic chronograph, you should consider the De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph. This 42-mm watch is available in your choice of stainless steel or rose gold. With 100 m (10 bar, 328 ft) of water resistance, you can even take it swimming – not even the Speedmaster Professional can do that. The in-house caliber 9300 powers the De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph and can measure periods of up to 12 hours.

How much does a De Ville cost?
The wide selection of new and used De Ville watches means there is something for every style and budget. Pre-owned vintage watches with a quartz or automatic caliber often sell for only a few hundred dollars. On the other end of the scale, you'll find gold and platinum tourbillon watches, which generally cost several hundred thousand dollars. One example is the ref. 5220.127.116.11.56.001. This model features 170 baguette-cut diamonds on its case and a further 289 diamonds on its movement.
Among the more affordable vintage editions, you'll find the popular Seamaster De Ville, many of which date back to the 1960s. Today, their prices range from about 600 USD for a well-worn stainless steel watch to 6,000 USD for a gold watch on a gold Milanese bracelet in near-mint condition. Prices for pre-owned mechanical timepieces from the 1990s begin around 1,200 USD.
The Omega De Ville Prestige serves as the entry point to the current collection. You can purchase a stainless steel women's model with a quartz caliber for as little as 2,000 USD. Men's watches with 39.5-mm cases and automatic Co-Axial calibers change hands for roughly 2,900 USD new and 2,400 USD pre-owned.

Prices for the De Ville Tourbillon
Tourbillon watches are the De Ville collection's top models. Omega produces these timepieces in strictly limited numbers and crafts their cases exclusively from precious metals like platinum or Sedna gold, Omega's proprietary rose gold alloy. One Sedna gold model is the ref. 518.104.22.168.03.001 with a blue dial and leather strap. Like its sister models, the tourbillon occupies the middle of the dial and doubles as a second hand. The hour and minute hands sit atop sapphire crystal and appear to be floating in midair. At 44 mm, this Sedna gold watch is best suited to larger wrists. Omega lists this timepiece for 156,000 USD. However, you can find the same model on Chrono24 for about 108,000 USD in mint condition.
In 2020, Omega announced the first Master Chronometer-certified tourbillon watch with manual winding. The company builds this 43-mm timepiece by hand. Its case is a combination of Sedna and Canopus gold, Omega's proprietary rose and white gold alloys. Canopus gold's bright hue heightens this watch's refined aesthetic. The dial and movement's bridges both come in 18-karat Sedna gold. You can view the wonderfully finished movement through the sapphire crystal case back. The dial features a black PVD coating with an elegant sunburst pattern. A matching black leather strap completes the look and holds the watch securely on the wrist. The manufacturer lists this tourbillon model at an official price of 176,500 USD.
The most exclusive De Ville Tourbillon model is the platinum ref. 522.214.171.124.56.001. Only three copies of this limited edition exist worldwide. More than 450 diamonds adorn its case and movement. The Co-Axial caliber 2637's winding rotor is also made of platinum. This luxurious timepiece has a recommended retail price of 725,000 USD. The version without diamonds costs much less at about 227,000 USD. The rose gold edition is even less expensive. While its list price sits at 137,000 USD, it changes hands on Chrono24 for just over 100,000 USD in mint condition.
Each watch in the De Ville Tourbillon series is handmade by a single watchmaker over the course of more than 500 hours. You can find the name of the master watchmaker engraved on the tourbillon's main plate.
Prices for the De Ville Trésor
The automatic watches in the De Ville Trésor series are especially flat and, thus, make ideal dress watches. The 40-mm editions are only 10.6 mm thick and available in stainless steel, yellow gold, white gold, or Sedna gold. There are also several dial color options to choose from, including silver, gray, blue, and red.
The red dial is made of enamel and appears on the 125th Anniversary Edition, which celebrates 125 years since adopting the "Omega" brand name. This model has an 18-karat yellow gold case. On the case back, you'll find a yellow gold medallion filled with red enamel. Omega mounts the watch on a burgundy leather strap. Inside the case, you'll find the caliber 8929, the first manual Master Chronometer movement. You can purchase a new version for around 16,000 USD on Chrono24. Its official list price is 19,450 USD.
Stainless steel De Ville Trésor watches are much more affordable. The ref. 4126.96.36.199.03.001 with a blue dial sells for roughly 5,300 USD in mint condition and 4,500 USD used. Unlike the 125th Anniversary Edition, this stainless steel timepiece comes with a date display at 6 o'clock. This display features a blue date disc with white numerals surrounded by a white-trimmed window. Omega equips this model with the Master Chronometer caliber 8910, which you can view through the sapphire crystal case back.
If you'd prefer a Sedna gold watch, you should be prepared to spend between 7,100 and 11,500 USD. You can find this watch under the reference number 4188.8.131.52.02.002. Omega officially sells this timepiece for 13,800 USD.
Women's De Ville Trésor Watches
Omega also offers numerous women's watches in the De Ville collection. Most of these models feature diamonds, as seen on the ref. 4184.108.40.206.13.001. This 36-mm watch comes in Sedna gold and uses a quartz caliber. Two curved lines of 19 diamonds each gently hug the case, beginning from the upper left and lower right lugs and running to 8 and 2 o'clock, respectively. The final result looks especially feminine.
The brown dial features large elongated Roman numerals. Both the hands and numerals are made of Sedna gold. You can call this watch your own for about 7,500 USD. The stainless steel variants demand significantly less, with prices ranging from 3,100 to 3,600 USD.
Those who prefer larger watches should take a closer look at the 39-mm edition. Other than its size, this version's design is identical to that of the 36-mm models. Omega also outfits these timepieces with reliable and precise quartz calibers. Prices for a new stainless still variant sit around 4,200 USD on Chrono24. The top Trésor women's watch is the ref. 4220.127.116.11.02.001 in Moonshine gold. You can find the same gold alloy on the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition. Moonshine gold has a muted yellow tone that doesn't fade as quickly as conventional yellow gold. A never-worn ref. 418.104.22.168.02.001 will set you back around 9,800 USD.
An Homage to Watches From the 1940s
Modern Trésor models pay homage to Omega watches from the late 1940s, which got their power from the legendary 30-mm caliber. This manual movement has been powering watches since 1939, and its size is typical of the era. Over the course of many tests and trials, the 30-mm caliber never failed to fulfill all of the requirements laid out by the Swiss observatory. Omega was one of the few manufacturers to regularly participate in such trials.
The manual caliber 8511 also boasts chronometer precision and powers current Trésor models. The Swiss manufacturer equips this movement with their in-house co-axial escapement, which is an alternative to the conventional Swiss anchor escapement. The co-axial escapement owes its staggering precision to its improved energy efficiency and reduced friction. This results in a double-barrel movement with a 60-hour power reserve.
It also has a freely oscillating silicon balance spring, which makes it resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. Thanks to the sapphire crystal case back, you can watch these manual movements at work and admire the rose gold balance bridge with Geneva stripes. Omega engraves the words "Anti-magnetic" and "> 15'000 Gauss" on the case back as well.
A Clear View with the De Ville Hour Vision
In 2007, Omega launched the De Ville Hour Vision. The Hour Vision gives the wearer a clear view of the movement not only from below but also from the side.
Today, most Hour Vision watches have opaque case sides. You can choose from stainless steel and 18-karat Sedna gold models, each of which measures 41 mm in diameter. All modern editions feature Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibers. The refs. 422.214.171.124.03.001 and 4126.96.36.199.03.001 are the only remaining models with a sapphire inner case that offers a side view of the caliber within. Blue dials and leather straps lend these timepieces a sporty and elegant look. A mint-condition 4188.8.131.52.03.001 demands roughly 5,500 USD. Pre-owned pieces change hands for approximately 4,800 USD. On the other hand, the 4184.108.40.206.03.001 features an annual calendar and costs about 8,600 USD new. Used versions are rare.
If you'd prefer a case with opaque sides, you should consider the ref. 4220.127.116.11.10.001. This stainless steel watch comes with a brown sunburst dial and matching brown leather strap. Roman numerals and narrow hands highlight this timepiece's classic aesthetic. The manufacturer crafts both the hands and numerals from 18-karat white gold. The caliber 8902 powers the watch and provides it with an annual calendar. The current date and month appear at 3 o'clock. You can purchase this timepiece for about 8,000 USD. The version without an annual calendar sells for anywhere between 4,400 and 5,100 USD.
The ref. 418.104.22.168.03.001 is one of the most exquisite and expensive Hour Vision models. Omega uses 18-karat Sedna gold for its case and bracelet. The hands and Roman numerals are made of the same material. A blue sunburst dial blends perfectly with the overall design and lends a sporty touch to this watch with an annual calendar. A never-worn edition requires an investment of roughly 31,000 USD. This watch rarely appears on the pre-owned market. The Sedna gold Hour Vision with a silver dial and date display costs about 27,500 USD.
The Hour Vision and State-of-the-Art Co-Axial Caliber
The automatic caliber 8500 powers early Hour Vision models. Omega developed this movement around the turn of the millennium in collaboration with the world's largest ébauche manufacturer and fellow Swatch Group member, ETA. One highlight of the 8500 is its co-axial escapement. It boasts several other improvements as well, including a winding rotor with low-maintenance zirconium-oxide jewels, a larger escapement, and two barrels instead of one. The two barrels give this movement an improved power reserve of 60 hours. The adjustable second hand is also a practical addition. Mechanical calibers often only have a balance stop or a second hand that doesn't stop at all.
Omega currently uses the newest generation of their Co-Axial Master calibers in the Hour Vision series. Some versions feature an annual calendar at 3 o'clock (caliber 8903), which displays the date alongside the current month. You only have to correct the date once a year on February 28th or 29th. On the other hand, watches with caliber 8901 show the date at 3 o'clock but lack a month.
The Hour Vision's Design
Omega went with a sportier look when designing the Hour Vision. At the same time, they incorporated classic design elements such as Roman numerals, Sedna gold cases, and leather straps in black, blue, or brown. There is also a wide range of dials available. Whether you prefer brown, black, silver, or blue, there's a color for you.
If you're going for a slightly sportier look, you might enjoy one of the stainless steel models. They come with a nine-piece link stainless steel bracelet and a 60-minute graduated scale on the rim of the dial. The horn-like lugs and two-tone dials in black/silver or brown/silver underscore the Hour Vision's sporty nature.
The De Ville Co-Axial With a Stopwatch Function
Those ready to add an elegant chronograph to their portfolio should take a closer look at the De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph series. These 42-mm timepieces share several design features with the Hour Vision such as Roman numerals, baton hands, and lugs that resemble a bull's horns. Omega offers these watches in stainless steel or Sedna gold. In terms of a band, you can choose between a leather strap or a nine-piece link metal bracelet.
The dial is available in silver, blue, or black. It features a combined hour and minute counter with two hands at 3 o'clock and a small seconds at 9. The date appears at the bottom of the dial at 6. The stainless steel edition on a metal bracelet costs around 6,500 USD new and 4,700 USD used. You can find a Sedna gold chronograph on a leather strap for anywhere from 15,000 to 22,500 USD, depending on its condition.
Omega Ladymatic: A De Ville for the Classic Woman
Omega first released the Ladymatic in 1955 and would reintroduce the series as the De Ville Ladymatic at the start of the 21st century. While these models resemble their predecessors, their technology is anything but vintage. Unlike other manufacturers, who outfit their women's watches with cheap quartz calibers, Omega has chosen state-of-the-art Co-Axial calibers with silicon balance springs for the Ladymatic. From a design perspective, these watches dazzle with precious materials like diamonds, pearls, gold, and mother-of-pearl.
Top De Ville Ladymatic watches belong to the Luxury Editions series. As the name implies, these timepieces are especially opulent. The Pearls and Diamonds ref. 422.214.171.124.55.013 is one such model. It features countless diamonds and pearls, especially on its white gold bracelet. A further 12 diamonds serve as hour indices on its mother-of-pearl dial. These sparkling gems also adorn the crown and bezel. Omega lists this treasure for 186,000 USD. At roughly 155,000 USD, you can save tens of thousands of dollars by purchasing it on Chrono24.
The stainless steel and other gold editions are much more budget-friendly and only feature diamonds on their dials. One example is the ref. 4126.96.36.199.55.003 in 18-karat yellow gold on a matching gold bracelet. This women's watch comes with a mother-of-pearl dial and demands about 23,000 USD. You can call one of the stainless steel variants your own for around 6,200 USD new and 5,500 USD pre-owned.
Prices: Omega De Ville Prestige
The men's and women's watches in the Omega De Ville Prestige series are classic dress watches. Clear, streamlined designs define this series. With the men's models, you have the choice between timeless, three-hand versions or those with small seconds at 9 o'clock. The latter also has a power reserve indicator at 6 o'clock. This function uses a small hand to show how much power the watch has left. The caliber 2627 has a 48-hour power reserve and sits within a 39.5-mm case. For the case material, you have the choice between stainless steel or yellow, rose, or white gold. The caliber 2500 powers the model with decentralized seconds, which also has a date display at 3 o'clock.
A new stainless steel De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Power Reserve demands around 3,600 USD, and used watches change hands for about 3,000 USD. The three-hand stainless steel edition sells for approximately 2,700 USD.
The De Ville Philosophy
The watches in the De Ville collection have their origins in the Seamaster De Ville, which Omega produced in the mid-1960s. The De Ville has been an independent collection since 1967. With it came a new Omega philosophy of creating classic, elegant watches. Accordingly, the company didn't design these watches at their Biel headquarters, but rather in Switzerland's watchmaking capital, Geneva. This city represents watchmaking like nowhere else on Earth. World-famous luxury brands like Rolex and Patek Philippe have their headquarters there.
The De Ville collection has embodied Geneva chic from the very beginning. Omega's designers paired rectangular cases with the super-flat manual caliber 620, connecting classic watchmaking traditions with modern 20th-century technology. This combination of progress and timelessness helped transform De Ville watches into icons of watchmaking history. Modern editions still combine innovative technology with traditional designs.
