The De Ville Chronograph OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300/9301 carries on the line’s tradition of classic design and its most innovative technology. It is powered by the chronograph in the brand’s family of proprietary Co-Axial movements. Equipped with OMEGA’s Si14 silicon balance spring, the timepiece is delivered with a four-year warranty. Frequent travellers will appreciate the fact that they can change the hour hand without affecting the minute and second hands – ideal for moving between time zones or for adjusting to the twice yearly time change in most parts of the world.
This new De Ville Chronograph is available with either a 42 mm 18 Ct red gold case on a brown or blue leather strap, or with a stainless steel case on a stainless steel bracelet or on a black or blue leather strap.
The 18 Ct gold model’s Co-Axial calibre 9301 has an 18 Ct gold rotor and balance bridge; the stainless steel model is powered by the Co-Axial calibre 9300, which has a rhodium-plated rotor and balance bridge.
The two-zone dial has been created in a choice of opaline-silver or blue for the 18 Ct red gold models and opaline-silver or black or blue for the De Ville Chronograph in stainless steel. It has two domed sub-dials. The chronograph sub-dial at 3 o’clock has both the 60-minute and 12-hour counters so reading the elapsed time is intuitive. At the 9 o’clock position is the small seconds hand. The watch has a central chronograph seconds hand as well as 18 Ct gold diamond-polished, facetted central hour and minute hands. Its applied Roman numeral indexes are also crafted from 18 Ct gold, facetted on the sides and ends and fully diamond-polished.
The De Ville Chronograph is water resistant to 10 bar / 100 metres / 330 feet.
