Description
If your heart desires for a dress watch, do not be too quick to dismiss Omega; doing so will make you miss out on the stately Trésor. It is proof that the watchmaker can turn the opposite direction and still create a masterly watch that is more restrained in design yet still remarkable in features. The caliber 8511 alone makes this release a must-have.

In spite of the advances in horology and the prominence of luxury sports timepieces, a field where Omega occupies among the top positions, watch lovers around the world still clamor for relatively simpler dress watches, especially when they have a touch of vintage in them. It is not hard to see why—when watchmaking companies want to best each other by being the most innovative, they tend to jam complications in one watch, some of which may be unnecessary, and result in an impressive but ultimately cluttered and nonintuitive dial. Omega has been guilty of this in some of their releases, but what they are not is letting themselves go when manufacturing dress watches. The elegant Omega Trésor attests to this.

The new Trésor is not to be confused with a popular old model from the 1940s that shares the name, because despite the updated version’s aesthetics that remind us of a bygone era, it is still very much a modern Omega release, understated in beauty relative to other Omega timepieces. The latter was certainly an inspiration to prove the point that Omega still can push forth dress watches that are as impactful as the sports watches they are more known for, while resisting the urge to simply re-release an old model to keep up with what is in vogue.

Pros

The Omega Trésor is bound to change your mind if you’ve been used to Omega being limited to sports watches alone; it is among the most formal of its offerings, with an elaborate dial to match. It is a sight to behold, thanks the clous de paris on the dial that gives it just the right mix of shine and matte. A common complaint among Omega fans is the thickness of its selection, but with this particular dress watch, you will not have any of the bulk. The case also has a slight curve on the back to allow the watch to fit your wrist comfortably.

If you’re having doubts about the Omega Trésor being more vintage than modern, flipping over the watch will prove you wrong. It boasts of a relatively new movement from the watchmaker, the caliber 8511 which is manually wound and is co-axial. Its two barrels give the watch a total power reserve of 60 hours. It is also notable for its capacity to resist magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss.

Cons

While the caliber alone is enough to make Omega fans itch for a Trésor, the dress watch doesn’t have a particularly remarkable water resistance capacity, with only a rating of 30 meters. Consequently, the watch also does not have a screw-down crown to ensure more water resistance. We doubt though that anyone would be so careless to let this beaut be wrecked by water.
