Vintage Omega Geneve in stainless steel case with automatic movement.
This ultra clean vintage Omega Geneve is in what could easily substitute for an Omega Seamaster case. The watch features a large dial and thin steel bezel. The larger dial gives the watch more wrist presence and makes it appear larger. The dial was recently restored ad features a two tone pattern with cross hair lines dividing the quadrants of the dial. Large steel hour markers ring the outer chapter of the dial. Steel baton hour and minute hands compliment a thin steel sweep seconds hand.
Powering the watch is a 24 jewel automatic Omega calibre 552 movement. This is the same movement used in the iconic vintage Omega Seamaster 300 diver watch. The movement was just serviced and is running flawlessly. The serial number of the watch, in the 17 million range, dates the watch to 1960.
The caseback is stamped inside with the Omega logo and a case reference number 14702-1.
Overall the watch is in fantastic restored condition.Please note the original signed Omega crown which was just replaced during the service and restoration.
The steel case measures 34 mm wide by 41 mm long. The watch is pictured on a brown calf skin strap but can be supplied with a black leather strap also.
These watches fill an interesting gap between a dress watch and a sports watch. I refer to them as casual watches. A jack of all trades and equally at home with a casual shirt or a suit.
