1970s Genova Super De Luxe Swiss Made Retro Vintage Watch


c.1970s Genova Super De Luxe Swiss Made vintage watch

A funky blast from the past, this Genova combines retro aesthetics and quality watchmaking. It is a manually-wound watch in a 36mm stainless steel plated case, and features an eye-catching reflective dial with horizontal texturing. The hour plots at 12 and 6 are vertical, adding to the chunky/funky aesthetic further in contrast to the rest of the horizontal dial plots. 

Genova, the Italian name for the Swiss town of Genoa, produced affordable but high quality watches in the 1970s for an international market. Their work as a company was important for making sound, quality mechanical watches more affordable and diverse in their aesthetic: not everyone wants a GMT or a Speedmaster!

What's on offer

An honest, affordable, retro Swiss-powered 1970s watch. This is a reliable wearer and one to stand apart from the crowd with. The watch is keeping excellent time. There are marks to the case back and edges, though these are to be expected for the watch's age and not significant.
