A watch can be a thoughtful Valentine's Day gift ― it's practical yet romantic. In fact, some luxury timepieces are created keeping this particular day, dedicated to love, in mind. So, if you are specifically looking for Valentine's Day-themed watches, you may want to check out the new Omega De Ville Mini Trésor watches. Meant for lean wrists, the De Ville Mini Trésor Ladies’ Collection comes with cases made of stainless steel and the brand's iconic Moonshine™ Gold. Just as its name suggests, the Mini Trésor is the smallest watch model from Omega.
Omega introduced the Trésor line in 1949; it was defined by its legendary 30 mm calibre. This collection is known for its elegant and slim designs, and it typically features models that showcase Omega's advanced mechanical movements and refined, luxurious aesthetics. The Trésor range includes models for both men and women, featuring various sizes, materials, and colour schemes. The latest collection, while featuring contemporary design and technology, pays homage to the brand's rich heritage.
Let us now look at what’s common in the new models. Irrespective of the materials, all these Mini Trésor models have diamond-set cases that measure 26 mm in diameter and have 13 mm lugs. Similarly, all have domed sapphire crystals above their dials, mirrored casebacks that are adorned with the brand’s “Her Time” pattern, and ornate crowns at 3 o’clock, each of which is decorated with an inlay of a red ceramic flower and set with a single diamond.
The three new Omega De Ville Mini Trésor watches with stainless steel cases feature the same domed off-white Grand Feu enamel dials, each of which has elongated grey-coloured Roman numerals printed on its surface. Ref. 4220.127.116.11.04.005 has a double-tour brown Novonappa leather strap, while Ref. 418.104.22.168.04.001 is completed on a grey alligator leather strap; Ref. 422.214.171.124.04.007 is fitted with a double-tour lacquered black calfskin leather strap that has a quilted diamond-shaped pattern embossed into its outer surface. These straps provide a unique and distinctive identity to the watches.
The two new Moonshine™ watches have unique dials. Ref. 4126.96.36.199.99.001 features a yellow Moonshine™ Gold dial with a silk-textured pattern on its surface and elongated Roman hour markers whose colour matches the colour of the case, the dial, and the bezel, lending it a monochromatic look. This model gets paired with a black fabric strap with a Moonshine™ Gold buckle. Meanwhile, Ref. 4188.8.131.52.04.003 is fitted with an off-white Grand Feu enamel dial that has red elongated Roman numeral hour markers; it gets completed by a matching double-tour strap made of red alligator leather. The hour and minute hands are also crafted from Moonshine™ Gold.
All five Omega De Ville Mini Trésor watches are powered by the brand’s Cal. 4061 Swiss quartz movement. The movement features rhodium-plated components and is decorated with circular graining. The Omega Calibre 4061 includes a “Long Life” feature to maximise its autonomy and this allows the Omega Mini Trésor models to run uninterruptedly for approximately 48 months in between battery replacements.
