Omega De Ville Automatic Men's Watch 424.

Double mainsprings have a variety of advantages. To begin with, they can be relatively easy to fit into a view of a specific diameter rather than a single giant mainspring, which sometimes necessitates building a movement at the top of or around the part, the IWC Portofino 8 Days being a great example of what looks like. Another advantage, at least with successive mainsprings like with this Omega, is it may level out the energy delivery, decreasing instability caused by varying levels of energy in the mainsprings. This is an area where the stats to the 8601 differ marginally, receiving the still-excellent 55 hour power reserve as opposed to the 8500’s 60. That is still quite great, however, about 15 over the business average.Now it is time to discuss the escapement, actually the series of components making a watch actually a watch. This is actually even more important for Omega since they’re the only company permitted to produce co-axial escapements.Due to the design of the watch, and most watches really, we can not see the majority of the escapement, but we are able to look straight down to the very unusual escape wheel. Its strange layout is the consequence of the co-axial strategy, which was made to reduce friction between the escape wheel (revealed) and the pallet fork. This is the toughest working place of a watch and it requires service comparatively frequently. The co-axial escapement was made to improve time between needed service periods and so increase stability (within the long term) within those periods. It is actually an extremely exotic design and quite interesting to see at the kinds of movements ordinary individuals can afford.

In my opinion, this De Ville strikes something of an perfect equilibrium between a reserved, austere look and something that’s more visually daring. Watches like the Nomos Orion Weiss or Girard Perregaux 1966 in steel, for instance, are all the way over on the austere side, and while pretty, are not especially striking. Conversely, you can look at the Omega Planet Ocean GoodPlanet GMT, that is absolutely striking but not the very discreet watch accessible. This De Ville is certainly more on the subtle side, but I believe that it finds a wonderful compromise.Of course, half of the reason you are even looking at this watch is due to the movement, especially since it’s the unusual annual calendar complication. The 8500-based 8601 here actually “knows” (to anthropomorphize the movement) which months have 30 days or 31 days, meaning that, with the exception of February (since it’s changeable days depending on the year) the owner doesn’t have to adjust the date in the end of short weeks. You may assume, as most do, that besides this complication, the rest of this 8601 is pretty much exactly the exact same as the other 8500s you’ve seen, but you would be wrong. There are in fact several important changes found everywhere, but we will get to this in the movement section.The dial is just marvelous, and it truly exists as an example of how much you can do with very little. It is, without a doubt, one of the best looking dials I have ever reviewed.

The dial, although it looks white, is actually silver, made in the type of prototypical German fashion that you may find in Nomos, Glashutte Original or ALS. That gives the silver a type of matte white appearance and allows it to have adequate contrast from the silver palms and markers.The great design actually begins with the hands. These are very simple multifaceted stick hands, all which have a slight taper. The opposing angles of every side give it a sort of brushed look, and this allows it to capture very different lighting on every border, increasing legibility. The seconds hand is heat blued and seems brilliant against the dial. While these elements are great, it is what Omega does together elsewhere that actually makes the watch encounter together.What I love this is that the same design of the hands was carried over into tasteful Roman numerals. They are extremely angular and finely polished, but what is more important is that it’s cohesive. A true designer, or team of designers, sat down and actually believed this view. I don’t even generally like Roman numerals and I’m dismissed by these.Here we find the largest visual difference between the yearly calendar and regular model. Many people expect to find a day complication in this position, but rather you’ll discover that the month complication. This was (more or less) necessary very for purposes of placing the watch although it does have the functionality of just being able to see the month (in case you forget?) . The date/month rings match the dial nicely and there’s a nice beveled border that easily transitions into the complications. I truly enjoy the somewhat shortened III mark rather than simply removing it altogether. You really don’t notice that it is abbreviated at a glance.Of program, the dial additionally acknowledges itself to be a yearly calendar should you forget. The text is approximately equal from top to bottom and is quite balanced, although in general I think less is more when it comes to writing on the dial.
