OMEGA De Ville Co-Axial Escapement Limited Edition
Launched in 1999, the Omega Co-Axial calibre 2500 was introduced to the world initially, in three limited edition individually-numbered models of which 1,000 were in red gold, a further 1,000 in yellow gold and 100 in platinum. The world’s first movement to feature a Co-Axial escapement has been heralded as one of the century’s major inventions in mechanical watches. With its’ design inspired by the Central Tourbillion watch, the merit of this high precision chronometer is the long-term stability of its regulating system. Notable features of this watch include the circular-grained Geneva waves, twelve-sided dial with a 0.5mm raised central zone, domed applied Roman numerals at quarter hours, fitted faceted hour markers with integral Superlite dots and luminous skeleton leaf-shaped hands. The screw-on back is engraved with the De Ville medallion, the legend bearing the words “ Co-Axial Escapement ” and the limited edition numbering. The edged alligator strap comes with matching deployment clasp.
