See my hands-on post with this watch here.
Omega has released a number of new models, not just updates this year, something they rarely do. The major companies aren't usually big new model people. However, it looks like this year things changed. Rolex released the Cellini, Omega released the Mark II, 300m, and now the Tresor. The Tresor is available in an 18-carat sedna, yellow, or white gold case . It comes with Omega's new 8511 movement, which is a manual wound watch featuring similar decoration to the 8500 and also has the newer >15,000 gauss technology. Following the theme of the dress watch the case is a modest 40mm in diameter. In addition the watch has both the co-axial escapement and the Si14 balance spring, so it is offered with a four-year warranty. The silvery dial has clous de Paris texture dial, taking away the plainness of the dial. Without the decoration the dial would be a bit too plain. The price of the watch in all the versions is 11,500 CHF (~$13,000 USD). With the classic design, textured dial, and new hand-wound caliber I think Omega hit it out of the park.
