An Appealing Omega Geneve Automatic with a Beautiful Silver Brushed Satin Dial - Applied Polished Metal Hour Markers, Omega Signed Glass, Crown and Bracelet 

Omega first began applying "Genève" to the dials of their dressier 30mm watches in 1953. This was in honour of their 30mm calibre that set records at the Geneva Observatory. By 1967 the name began to be applied to models throughout Omega's range. 

The Geneve is the perfect entry-level vintage Swiss watch, many variations of the model were produced from the early 1960s up until the early 1980s, united by their simple 3 hand designs, amalgamating into a stylish and wearable collection, of which, this is a really nice example.

What’s On Offer 

A beautiful vintage Omega Geneve automatic with a silver brushed dial which is in absolutely stunning, blemish-free condition! The dial boasts polished metal hour markers with black inserts and the slim sword hands have coordinating black inserts.

A central sweep seconds hand glides around the dial past a crisp Omega signature at 12 and subtle date aperture at 3 o'clock. This watch is Omega through and through, with originally signed plexiglass, a signed crown and an original folding clasp bracelet also signed by Omega. A good-sized watch at 36mm, this watch has a stylish slim bezel which allows it to look larger on the wrist, it's also very comfortable. A timeless design that simply doesn't age, and is more than worthy of any collection and a very affordable introduction to vintage watches for any budding collector.

Recently serviced by our master watchmaker, and lightly polished, this watch is in superb vintage condition.
