Earlier this week, Felix took a closer look at a watch that has to be a frontrunner for nicest dress watch of the year, the blue dial Omega Trésor. While it’s certainly a good-looking watch, there are two other members of the Trésor family that might even beat it to the punch.
The Omega Trésor has also been released in a yellow gold case, and a steel case with a diamond bezel, both with the same svelte case shape. Each piece brings its own character to the table, but these two options offer a little bit of something extra, with the respective warmth of the coloured precious metal case and a single row of diamonds. In the yellow gold example, the dial is cleanly refined without a date window to remind of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s quote: “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
In the steel example with a diamond bezel, you have a watch that offers less of a sense of restrained minimalism (which is only slightly oxymoronic), and more of a self-assured confidence that is an attractive reprieve from the typically conservative dress watch. An expression of sophisticated vitality that is the perfect companion to any event you need to wear a tie.
