De Ville Hour Vision is a wristwatch by Omega.

Series of elegant men's watches, brought to market 2007, and equipped with the high quality manufacture movements Omega 8500 / Omega 8501, presented the same year. They feature the co-axial escapement invented by George Daniels and are certified as chronometer by the COSC. Through two barrels in series the movements attain a remarkably high power reserve of 60 hours. Watch magazine Chronos (1/2007) “In the test the new movement convinced with excellent rate results and a stable amplitude.”

The most striking feature of all models is the with rhodium coated hour trail, which is complemented by faceted golden hour numerals. The date window at 3 o'clock is framed by a diamond-polished 18ct white or red gold insert.

The caseback with sapphire crystal offers a look at the elaborate finishing, where the rhodinated and blackened screws with delicate azuré surface engraving ensure a futuristic look. Another special feature are the four sapphire crystal windows, by which at the sides of the case, a view of the inside of the watch is enabled. A complete sapphire housing is placed into the steel or rose gold case, so that the watch is still waterproof up to 10 atm and up to 5000 G shockproof. Thus, the term “Hour Vision” for the models of this series is justified in an unusual way.

During the year 2008 a limited edition (160 pieces) of eight models with annual calendar was launched, equipped with the manufacture movement Omega 8611, see De Ville Hour Vision Annual Calendar. Also a series of chronographs is planned.
