If you look closely at Omega’s long history, you will find some very important milestones in the field of watchmaking. In fact, it was Omega that created the first watch tourbillon movement in 1947. Nearly 50 years later, in 1994, the Swiss brand launched its first self-winding tourbillon with a central fixed cage, which was launched ten years later. With the first chronometer-certified wrist-wound tourbillon. This year, Omega unveiled its latest achievement: replica Omega De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition 43 mm watch 5220.127.116.11.01.001, the first hand-wound, wrist-borne tourbillon to meet the stringent criteria of Omega’s in-house Master Chronometer certification. This is big news, not only for Omega enthusiasts and highly sophisticated collectors, but also represents a quantum leap in tourbillon technology.
The 43 mm Case
The 43-mm case of the replica Omega De Ville Tourbillon Numbered Edition combines two precious metal alloys that have become signatures of the Omega brand. The casebody (along with and crown logo and buckle logo) are made of 18K Canopus gold, a proprietary white-gold alloy of particular brilliance, while the bezel, lugs and caseback are in 18K Sedna gold, Omega’s in-house-developed rose-gold alloy that incorporates copper and palladium for a fiery reddish gleam. The dial, also constructed of Sedna gold, has a sun-brushed, black PVD finish. In dead center of the dial is the tourbillon cage, whose hand-polished bevels are made of black ceramized titanium.
Calibre 2640 Movement
Powered by the bar-none exquisite-looking Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 2640, the latest Omega De Ville Tourbillon watch fake has its bridges and mainplate crafted from solid 18k Sedna Gold, Omega’s proprietary gold alloy that is also used for parts of the case. The Omega Caliber 2640 has three days of power reserve — something you can keep track of through the power reserve indicator on the back and, being a hand-wound movement, you can replenish through the crown. The dial side of the movement, with its openworked sections, beveled edges, and mirror-polished screws is a sight to behold — too bad that all, except the tourbillon itself, is hidden by the dial.
The big deal is what’s recorded on the dial, as well as on the mainspring barrels: the Master Chronometer certification. This is Omega’s METAS-certified in-house testing procedure that, among other things, addresses accuracy (0 to +5 seconds tolerance) and power reserve before and after exposure to an immensely powerful, 15,000 Gauss magnetic field. Attaining such properties on a low-production, highly exclusive caliber such as the Omega Caliber 2640 must have required heavy investment into R&D. Add to this the fact that most all manufactures prefer not to have their tourbillon movements submitted to COSC or other chronometry performance tests for the simple reason that wristwatch tourbillon movements are a pain to reliably regulate, and this movement powering through magnetic fields while attaining the aforementioned strict tolerance in timekeeping becomes all the more respectable. With all that in mind, it’s arguably amusing to read Omega calling the industry-standard one-minute rotation of the tourbillon an “extraordinary feat in Tourbillon creation” when there’s so much else to be proud of.
