Omega De Ville Men's Watches Review: Co-Axial, Prestige, X2, Automatic, Quartz

Updated on June 2, 2013

Omega DeVille Gents

Omega De Ville men's watches constitute the brand's most versatile, both in terms of design and complications, department of luxury dress and fashion timepieces. Adding such models as Hour Vision and X2, and including certified chronometers, it expands considerably on DeVille ladies and, offering over a hundred of variations, becomes a true master collection.

Complications rival aesthetic for diversity by providing such functions as chronograph, rattrapante, power reserve indicator, annual calendar, GMT, and date – many of which have been ensconced in Omega trademark Co-Axial movement. Regular quartz and automatic calibers fill the cases of thinner Prestige pieces.

While the robust and modern Constellation relied mainly on bracelets to support the cases, DeVille clearly prefers traditional and comfort-oriented leather straps. Bracelets that do appear in several Co-Axial and Prestige lines, display a much more supple physique – many small bricks and links instead of the massive powerful bars of the Constellation.

As befits tradition-conscious designs, these watches display a restrained palette, black, gray (silver), white, and brown (for the straps) playing the primary decorative role.

Co-Axial Chronographs

These timers occupy the top of the dress/complicated “food chain” in Omega assortment, echoing the all-encompassing approach of such collections as Vacheron Constantin Malte and Blancpain Leman. Such models as the Co-Axial Chronoscope and Rattrapante demonstrate why the chronograph utility is without a doubt the brand's most elaborate (foreshadowing the professional Speedmaster).

Hour Vision

Hour Vision keeps the basic visual organization of the chronographs – thick bezel, prominent indexes – but opts for standard company chronometers for the mechanism. A closer look reveals that hands changed from lance-type to baton-type: leaner dials also allow for a more direct layout.

Prestige

With DeVille Prestige watches Omega give their answer to Vacheron Constantin Patrimony, Blancpain Villeret, and Patek Philippe Calatrava on the high-end end of the luxury spectrum, and Longines Grand Classique, Longines Heritage, and Baume&Mercier Classima on the more affordable side.

(We recommend that you take the time to examine and compare between these collections).

Minimalist, restrained facade that avoids flourishes, and exhibits a clean, assured composition – classic and ultra-conservative design that never goes out of fashion.

X2

X2 watches comprise the square case line of DeVille, in a way complimenting the parallel Constellation Ladies Quadra and Quadrella. The title derives from the Roman and Arabic combo at twelve o'clock; this sharp creative approach extends to the dials, which feature a zebra-like linear pattern, and cases, which carry four unusual pyramid-like lugs.

Jewelry models introduce rose and white gold, mother-of-pearl, and diamonds paving the upper index. Omega essentially render this line a full-fledged collection by equipping it with chronograph and chronometer movements.
