You might have missed the slick new updates to Omega’s dressy Trésor line amidst the cavalcade of Speedmaster and Seamaster releases this year but, trust me, they’re worth closer inspection. For one thing, steel joins the family this year, across a few versions.
Of particular note is this gorgeous bleu number. Not only is the 40mm steel case an exercise in classic, everyday style of the old school variety, with a slender case and truly top-notch mechanical movement, but the dial is something else. For starters, the thin, long hands and hour markers are timeless. And then there’s the dial itself. It’s domed, which adds complexity and depth, and then there’s the pattern, a printed cross-hatched pattern that brings to mind the ‘linen’ dials of yore. And while it’s fair to say that the Trésor will never be the main arrow in Omega’s quiver — the Speedmaster and Seamaster families are far too strong for that — it’s an excellent, impressive take on a classic genre, and certainly one worth considering if a flexible dress watch is in your future.
