It's here!  The color of the hands can look wildly different depending on lighting, from brown to dark grey to dark blue to light blue. The dial is also sometimes white and sometimes creme colored.  I'd bought the brown Omega strap and Omega deployant clasp last year, in the hopes that I'd have a watch to put it on (was going to try it on my Moonwatch).

Here's pics wearing the new watch on bracelet and leather strap.  I kinda prefer the leather.  In the sunlight the watch is simply stunning, and the applied blue metal Omega logo and text really stands out too.

That is a very well-done dial, although it may have a touch too much texture for me. 

I think they did well with the fine-textured clou de paris dial, more so than some watches that have a more coarse block texture (although the AP RO ultra-thin blue dial stops my heart, in looks and price).

I like this Omega more than the PP and VC watches I tried on, as it doesn't seem too dressy for a solid gold watch and I could wear it with jeans if I wanted to.  My Aqua Terra 2503.33 isn't really a dress watch, but my incoming NOMOS Orion Midnight Limited Ed might fill that role as well as the Tresor, although not as elegant looking (nor as costly).
