The wristwatch featured in this offering is a gorgeously restored example of one of Omega's classic vintage Geneve watches.
It has a classic and understated case, regal dark blue dial, and very fine ultra-thin handwound Omega movement.
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) and later expanded the line of watches featuring the name. According to Omega the name referred to to the Genevan Observatory where the early 30mm calibers set a number of records.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands and winding crown and presents in true expertly restored condition. The original dial has been flawlessly refinished. The printing is perfect - it could pass as Omega factory done.
Note that the tone of the dial appears darker in the photos than it does in person.
As part of the restoration the movement has been fully overhauled and is running very true. We have 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.
Photos of the inside available upon request.
A four decade old Omega that looks like new!
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and Prince William, and one graced the wrist of President John F. Kennedy. Omega has been the official timekeeper for 21 Olympic Games and is the official chronometer of NASA.
