DRESSED TO IM­PRESS

Omega’s new De Ville Trè­sor Ladies’ col­lec­tion melds easy ele­gance with ef­fort­less moder­nity for watches with un­par­al­leled ver­sa­til­ity

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - OMEGA PRESENTS -

Gaz­ing straight into the cam­era, Kaia Gerber’s Gerber r’s eyes seem to pin you down from within in her mono­chrome frame, ex­per per tly cap­tured by renowned fash­ion sh­ion pho­tog­ra­pher and mas­ter of light, Peter Lind­bergh. She’s a pic tureper­fect par­a­digm of ease and as­sur­ance ssur­ancce in her over­sized pantsuit; ex­ud­ing ing a qu quiet uiet con­fi­dence that dares you to take her he er as she is—sen­ti­ments that are equally ually ec echoed choed and ac­cen­tu­ated by the watch h she wears: we ears: A De Ville Tré­sor Ladies time­piece e be­long­ing be­lon ging to Omega’s lat­est fam­ily line. “I’m “I’m re­ally real drawn to clas­sic style and for r me the Tré­sor has that vin­tage look, b but with a cool, very mod­ern twist. It’s a beau­ti­ful bea watch to look at and I love wear­ing it,” says the 17-yearold model, whose de­but on the runw run­ways dur­ing spring/sum­mer 2 2017 sa saw her ris­ing to strato­spheric he heights; ights; w with lux­ury houses ea­ger to align n thems them­selves to her brand­ing. Yet, as Omeg Omega ga an­nounced anno last Septem­ber, Kaia’s wrists aare are off lim­its to any­one but Omega, thanks tto to a dea deal that saw her be­com­ing an of­fi­cial brand b a am­bas­sador, along with her brother, Pres­ley Gerber.

And why not? The Ger­bers have as much mod­el­ling pedi­gree as they do a horo­log­i­cal one. After all, the sib­lings’ mother, Cindy Craw­ford, has been an Omega brand am­bas­sador for the past 23 years and, as Kaia read­ily shares: “I love Omega, just be­cause I grew up with it and I feel like I’ve al­ways been sur­rounded by every­one there. We’ve been a fam­ily from since I can re­mem­ber.” So when it comes to watches, Kaia clearly knows what she’s talk­ing about. RE­FINED VER­SA­TIL­ITY One look at the De Ville Tré­sor and it’s easy to see why it would be a Gerber favourite (or any woman’s, for that mat­ter). The round-faced watch presents pared down looks that have been stripped of all ex­tra­ne­ous de­tails. The fo­cus, in­stead, has been to ac­cen­tu­ate and re­fine it s ver y essence with painstak­ing care, from the trans­ferred and em­bossed Ro­man nu­mer­als that ac­com­pany the watch’s slim, pol­ished hands, to the gleam­ing crown dec­o­rated with a highly stylised di­a­mond-stud­ded flower (com­pris­ing five Omega lo g o s) in red, liq­uid ce­ramic. Fur ther ev­i­dence that Omega has pulled out all the stops for its lat­est star can be found on the watch’s mir­rored case­back, which has been en­graved with a cap­ti­vat­ing “Her Time” spiro­graph de­sign of math­e­mat­i­cal pre­ci­sion. With this watch, it’s clearly the de­tails that mat­ter, re­sult­ing in a time­less de­sign that is pro­posed with a thor­oughly mod­ern at ti­tude. Easy ele­gance is bal­anced with cal­cu­lated re­fine­ment, lux­u­ri­ous touches with a min­i­mal­ist tenet… It’s the mas­ter­ful jux­ta­po­si­tion of beau­ti­ful con­tra­dic­tions into a uni­fy­ing whole. The new Tré­sor is not a watch that shines with flam­boy­ance. In­stead, it’s a watch that was de­signed to ac­cen­tu­ate the in­di­vid­ual and unique style of its wearer, thought­fully and con­sci­en­tiously through a ul­tra-slim de­sign that wears like a sec­ond skin. A high-pre­ci­sion quartz move­ment (cal­i­bre 4061) pow­ers each of the nine de­signs in the col­lec­tion, which come in ei­ther stain­less steel or Omega’s be­guil­ing Sedna™ gold. Di­a­monds add a touch of ev­ery­day glam­our, while satin or leather straps and sev­eral dial colour­ways en­sure women find a piece that suits their style tem­per­a­ment to a tee. And in true Omega g form, , there are also two sizes to choose from—39mm and 36mm—just so you have a watch that pro­vides vides as ac­cu­rate a time as it does s a com­fort fit. Un­der­stated, mod­ern and stylishly ver­sa­tile, the new w De Ville Tré­sor Ladies’ ies’ col­lec­tion is a fit­ting ng con­tin­u­a­tion of the Omega legacy acy that sees it of­fer­ing ring ev­ery­thing that a woman wants in a watch—and more. From top: Steel and di­a­mond De Ville Tré­sor, $6,150. A red, liq­uid ce­ramic flo­ral mo­tif dresses each watch crown. An ink il­lus­tra­tion to cap­ture the col­lec­tion’s easy so­phis­ti­ca­tion OP­PO­SITE: Kaia Gerber, shot by Peter Lind­bergh for Omega. Sedna ™ gold and di­a­mond De Ville Tré­sor, $12,000
