ICON: DE VILLE LADY­MATIC

With its in­tri­cate vin­tage-in­spired de­sign and gem-adorned dial, Omega’s Lady­matic has been the quin­tes­sen­tial women’s lux­ury watch since 1955. For the bet­ter part of a gen­er­a­tion, the Lady­matic wrist­watch defi ned savoir-faire.

A mile­stone for the Swiss watch­maker, the Lady­matic was one of the brand’s first self-wind­ing watches to be de­signed es­pe­cially for women, and fea­tured the small­est au­to­matic move­ment Omega had ever made.

The lat­est ad­di­tion to the Lady­matic fam­ily – the De Ville Lady­matic coloured dial – en­com­passes all the ele­ments that made the orig­i­nal such a clas­sic, but sur­passes it on ev­ery level. Boast­ing the time­less style of ev­ery Lady­matic be­fore it, the De Ville fl aunts an ex­quis­ite dial (in pink mother- of-pearl, pur­ple or grey) embellished with an en­chant­ing su­per­nova pat­tern and 11 di­a­mond in­dices set into faceted 18K gold hold­ers. A domed scratch-re­sis­tant sap­phire crys­tal with anti-re­flec­tive treat­ment on both sides pro­tects the spec­tac­u­lar dial.

The hour, minute and sec­onds hands are also crafted from 18K gold, while the bezels are pol­ished stain­less steel or paved with di­a­monds in a snow-set pat­tern. The piece de re­sis­tance is a sin­gle “Bril­liant Omega Cut” di­a­mond on the crown. All this op­u­lence is pre­sented on an 18K rose or yel­low gold and stain­less steel bracelet, or on a grace­ful satin-brushed white or brown leather strap.

The De Ville Lady­matic looks glo­ri­ous, to say the least, but its in­te­rior is no less mag­nif­i­cent. At the heart of this state­ment-mak­ing wrist­watch is Omega’s ex­clu­sive au­to­matic Co-Ax­ial cal­i­bre 8520, which has been COSC-

When it comes to bring­ing out the fairer side of horol­ogy, no­body does it bet­ter than Omega. Its lat­est ladies’ watches are a flaw­less sym­phony of grace and pre­ci­sion.

cer­ti­fied as a chronome­ter. Al­though you’re un­likely to take a dive with this beauty, it is none­the­less wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 10 bar (about 100m). Such a fash­ion-for­ward timepiece that so per­fectly mar­ries con­sum­mate de­sign with state- of-the-art tech­nol­ogy deserves a place on your wrist.

BREAK­THROUGH: 18K SEDNA GOLD

When it comes to ex­e­cut­ing an idea, Omega goes all the way. In an in­dus­try­first, Omega has launched two time­pieces, Con­stel­la­tion Sedna 1952 and De Ville Lady­matic “Di­a­monds & Pearls”, us­ing 18K Sedna Gold – an all-new al­loy ex­clu­sively de­vel­oped by the Swatch Group, which blends gold, cop­per and pal­la­dium for an un­com­monly long-last­ing red­dish hue.

The name Sedna comes from a trans-Nep­tu­nian ob­ject that as­tronomers have de­scribed as the red­dest ob­ject in our so­lar sys­tem, so it’s an apt moniker for a model in Omega’s Con­stel­la­tion range. Be­sides us­ing ground­break­ing ma­te­rial, Con­stel­la­tion Sedna also fea­tures en­graved tone-on-tone Ro­man nu­mer­als, a sil­very “pie-pan” dial rem­i­nis­cent of the first Omega Con­stel­la­tion launched in 1952, and a Co-Ax­ial Cal­i­bre 8501 move­ment that’s vis­i­ble through the trans­par­ent sap­phire case back.

For a more fem­i­nine take, the De Ville Lady­matic “Di­a­monds & Pearls” stuns with its el­e­gant con­struc­tion and lav­ish fin­ish – fea­tur­ing 18K Sedna gold not just on its dainty face, but also on the elab­o­rate jewellery bracelet adorned with iri­des­cent white Akoya pearls, pol­ished 18K Sedna gold pearls and scin­til­lat­ing full-cut di­a­monds.
