Today's offering showcases this distinctive and pleasing example of one of Omega's vintage gent's Geneve watches.
It features a strong black dial, classic gold-plated and steel case and automatic caliber 1481 Omega movement with quick-setting date.
It is fully Omega down to the hands, crown, and even crystal! It presents in gorgeous true expertly restored condition - it presents as a 9.7 out of 10.
The case presents as just short of mint with the slightest remnants of wear to the back. On the wrist it presents as mint. The dial has been meticulously refinished - its gilt printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
Its so-called tropical or hypo-allergenic case has the look of the wrist of a solid gold Omega for a fraction of the price.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with genuine Omega new-old-stock parts, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $445 value).
Its automatic movement is very clean and is running strong and true.
For the finishing touch it has been equipped it with a new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
A four and a half decade old Omega that presents like new on the wrist!
Omega Geneve line:
Beginning in 1953 Omega placed the name Geneve on the dials of some of the members of the 30mm collection which at the time were produced in the company's workshops in Geneve (to put Geneve on a dial of a watch certain components and processes must take place in Geneve). According to Omega the name referred to to the Genevan Observatory where the early 30mm calibers set a number of records.
Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, and Ernie Els Omega timepieces rank with those from the world's fine Swiss firms.
