It's a scenario that most bridegrooms are familiar with - nervously watching the time tick by until their bride walks down the aisle to join them. And waiting at the altar in Venice last weekend, Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney must have felt the same palpitations as he counted down the minutes before saying "I do" on one of the most advanced Omega watches for men ever created.
The actor and Omega ambassador chose to wear a handsome Omega De Ville Trésor watch in white gold for his headline-grabbing wedding to fiancée Amal Alamuddin last Saturday.
An upgraded version of a late 1940s classic, underneath the stylish ultra-thin case - just 10.6mm thick - lies one of the world's most advanced watch movements, the Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8511, coupled with a time zone function, a date window and Omega's exclusive anti-magnetic technology. A certified-COSC chronometer watch, this elegant watch is capable of resisting magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss.
Should you want to take some tips from George Clooney's wedding style, like its predecessor, the Omega De Ville Trésor watch is characterised by a slim and elegant 40mm case and is available in either white or yellow gold.
