Omega De Ville

The de Ville, style and character

Back in the days the “de Ville” legitimately led to associations of four wheels rather than two hands. Hence the Omega de Ville is certainly considered an homage to its ancestor in car industries. The Cadillac Coupé de Ville did not only realize the American Dream in exceptional design and all dignity but also developed into one of the top-selling cars by Cadillac. Equally emphasizing style and elegance designers in charge of Cadillac and Omega must have been led by similar spirits. Over the past years Omega managed to vary surface and movement of the model without subsiding in style. For instance the coaxial escapement as introduced in 1999 was followed by the manufacture coaxial movement 8500 / 8501 as early as by 2007.
