De Ville: Omega's Dress Watch Collection
Omega's De Ville collection has been known for its classic, elegant watches for decades. In-house 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. First launched in the mid-1950s, these watches were originally part of the Seamaster family. In 1967, Omega turned the De Ville series into a stand-alone collection. These timepieces range 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, De Ville timepieces are the perfect accessory for formal occasions and great statement pieces for everyday wear.
If you are looking for a classic chronograph, you should consider the De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph. This 42-mm watch is available in stainless steel or rose gold. With 100 m (10 bar, 328 ft) of water resistance, you can even take it swimming. This is an impressive feat, since not even Omega's iconic Speedmaster Professional can compete with that water rating.
Thanks to their chronometer-certified Co-Axial calibers, De Ville watches are extremely precise, reliable, and efficient. Top models even come with Co-Axial Master Chronometer certification and can resist magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss, making strong magnetism no match for these timepieces.

About the Omega De Ville Collection
There is a wide selection of De Ville watches on Chrono24, meaning there is a model to suit every style and budget. You can even find pre-owned vintage watches from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s with quartz or automatic movements for a couple of hundred dollars.
The Omega De Ville Prestige series is home to the most affordable models in the current collection. You can purchase a stainless steel women's model with a quartz caliber, such as the ref. 4184.108.40.206.04.001, 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.
In the premium price range, you'll find tourbillon watches crafted from gold or platinum. The top model is the ref. 5220.127.116.11.56.001, which demands north of 600,000 USD. This hefty price tag is explained by the 170 baguette-cut diamonds adorning the platinum case, as well as the 289 diamonds sitting on its movement.
De Ville Tourbillon: Star of the Collection
The tourbillon models are the stars of the De Ville collection. Each watch 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. Very few examples leave Omega's hallowed halls each year.
Omega produces their cases exclusively from precious metals like platinum and 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 sibling models, the tourbillon occupies the middle of the dial and doubles as the 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 perfect for larger wrists. Omega lists this timepiece for 156,000 USD. However, you can find the same model on Chrono24 for about 125,000 USD in mint condition.
In 2020, Omega announced the De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition, 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 caliber 2640 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 the tourbillon model with the ref. 522.214.171.124.01.001 at an official price of 176,500 USD. This timepiece is a rare find on Chrono24.
The most exclusive De Ville Tourbillon model is the platinum ref. 5126.96.36.199.56.001. Only three copies of this limited edition exist worldwide. More than 450 diamonds adorn its 38.7-mm 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 (ref. 5188.8.131.52.99.001) features the skeletonized caliber 2636, and costs roughly 190,000 USD. The rose gold edition is significantly less expensive; it changes hands on Chrono24 for around 100,000 USD in mint condition.
Sleek and Slim: The De Ville Trésor
The automatic watches in the De Ville Trésor series are especially thin and, thus, make for fantastic 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 options to choose from, including silver, gray, blue, green, red, and mother-of-pearl versions.
The ref. 4184.108.40.206.03.001 is one of the stainless steel timepieces in the De Ville collection. Omega equips this model with the Master Chronometer caliber 8910, which you can view through the sapphire crystal case back. This movement features a blue date display at 6 o'clock that is almost camouflaged within the blue dial; the white numerals for indicating the date are the only stand-out feature. Plan to spend around 5,400 USD for one of these watches on Chrono24.
If you prefer the Sedna gold ref. 4220.127.116.11.02.002, expect prices for a model in mint condition to rise to the 10,000 USD mark.
Trésor: Small Seconds & Power Reserve
In 2021, Omega unveiled two new Trésor models: the De Ville Trésor Small Seconds and the De Ville Trésor Power Reserve. As the name reveals, the first watch has a small seconds subdial at 6 o'clock instead of the date window seen on standard Trésor models. The Trésor Power Reserve also features a small seconds complication at 6 o'clock. This watch gets its name from the additional subdial at 12 o'clock for the power reserve indicator.
Both watches measure 40-mm in diameter and are made of stainless steel, rose gold, or yellow gold. Certain versions even have diamond-set bezels. You can choose from dials in white, black, anthracite, blue, green, and dark red.
Depending on the material, prices for the De Ville Trésor Small Seconds on Chrono24 can range between 6,300 and 16,000 USD. It's a similar story for the De Ville Trésor Power Reserve: stainless steel models are on the lower end of the scale at roughly 6,500 USD, while gold watches can demand up to 16,000 USD.
Women's De Ville Trésor Watches
Omega also offers numerous women's watches in the De Ville collection. Many of these models feature diamonds, as seen on the ref. 418.104.22.168.13.001. 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 7,800 USD. The stainless steel variants demand significantly less at around 4,100 USD.
Those who prefer larger watches should take a 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 steel variant sit at around 4,100 USD on Chrono24. The top Trésor women's watch is the ref. 422.214.171.124.02.001 in Moonshine gold. You can find the same gold alloy on the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition. Moonshine gold has a brighter yellow tone that doesn't fade as quickly as conventional yellow gold. A never-worn ref. 4126.96.36.199.02.001 will set you back around 9,800 USD.
In 2022, Omega added the Mini Trésor to the lineup. The design remains the same, but the case measures just 26 mm across. You can choose between watches in stainless steel or Moonshine gold, paired with a Moonshine gold bracelet or "toile-de-Jouy" fabric strap. Toile de Jouy is a type of printed pattern that was first seen in France in the 1700s. These watches are a rare find on the Chrono24 marketplace. Omega's official retail prices for these models range between 8,000 and 24,800 USD.
Omega Ladymatic: A De Ville for the Classic Woman
Omega first released the Ladymatic in 1955 and later reintroduced 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 34-mm watches dazzle with precious materials like diamonds, pearls, gold, and mother-of-pearl. The round case and T-shaped lugs give the watch a very feminine feel.
The top De Ville Ladymatic watches are found in the Luxury Editions series. As the name implies, these timepieces are especially opulent. The Pearls and Diamonds ref. 4188.8.131.52.55.013 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, while the hands and case are crafted from 18-karat white gold. Omega lists this treasure for 186,000 USD.
The stainless steel and other gold editions are much more budget-friendly and only feature diamonds on their dials. One example is the ref. 4184.108.40.206.55.003 in 18-karat yellow gold on a matching gold bracelet. This women's watch comes with a mother-of-pearl dial and demands about 25,000 USD. You can call one of the stainless steel variants your own for around 6,500 USD.
About the Omega De Ville Prestige
The men's and women's watches in the Omega De Ville Prestige series are classic dress watches with diameters between 24.4 and 39.5 mm. Clear, streamlined designs define this line. With the men's models, you have the choice between timeless, three-hand versions with a date display or those with a small seconds at 9 o'clock in addition to a date window at 3. The latter also has a power reserve display at 6 o'clock. The caliber 2627 has a 48-hour power reserve. The case measures 39.5 mm in diameter. For the case material, you have the choice between stainless steel or yellow, rose, or white gold.
You can buy the stainless steel De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Power Reserve for around 3,600 USD. The three-hand stainless steel edition sells for approximately 2,900 USD. If you are in the market for a gold watch, expect prices anywhere between 8,500 and 18,000 USD, depending on the exact model.
Omega generally outfits the women's watches in this series with quartz movements. One example is the stainless steel ref. 4220.127.116.11.55.001. This 24.4-mm timepiece features a mother-of-pearl dial with diamond indices and comes on a seven-piece link bracelet. Plan to spend around 2,500 USD on this Omega watch. The 18-karat yellow gold versions are significantly more expensive at 12,000 USD. If you would like to add a diamond-set bezel, expect prices to rise by another 6,000 USD.
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. 418.104.22.168.03.001 and 422.214.171.124.03.001 are the only models to still feature 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. Prices for the ref. 4126.96.36.199.03.001 come in at roughly 6,200 USD. The 4188.8.131.52.03.001 features an annual calendar and costs about 6,000 USD.
If you'd prefer a case with opaque sides, you should consider the ref. 4184.108.40.206.10.001. 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 date and month appear at 3 o'clock. You can purchase this timepiece for about 5,400 USD.
The ref. 4220.127.116.11.03.001 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. This edition requires an investment of roughly 28,500 USD.
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, and 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 collection should take a closer look at the De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph series. These timepieces feature either two or three subdials and 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 band options, you can choose between a leather strap or a nine-piece link metal bracelet.
The dial is available in silver, blue, or black. The version with two subdials has a combined hour and minute counter at 3 o'clock and a small seconds at 9. The date appears at the bottom of the dial at 6 o'clock. On the edition with three subdials, the minute counter is positioned at 3 o'clock, the hour counter and date display are at 6 o'clock, and the small seconds can again be found at 9.
Listings for stainless editions on Chrono24 come in at around 3,800 USD. The Sedna gold chronographs demand an investment closer to 16,000 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 Genevan chic from the very beginning. Omega's designers paired rectangular cases with the super-flat manual caliber 620, linking 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.
