Today's offering showcases this gorgeously restored example of one of Omega's uncommon vintage gent's Geneve watches. Made for only parts of two years in 1974 and 1975, it has a Television shaped water-resistant style case with screw back, Tiffany blue / turquoise color dial, and quick-setting date.
Full sized, it measures 35mm in diameter, in between the sizes of a Rolex Date and a Datejust.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands and signed winding crown. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration and presents in gorgeous condition.
The water-resistant style case presents as mint. The original dial is a meticulous custom restoration - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has just overhauled the movement. Like a new Omega it is keeping chronometer grade time in averaged five chronometer positions.
For the finishing touch a new calfskin leather strap has been installed making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

An four and a half decade old Omega that presents on the wrist like new!
Omega Geneve line:
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, 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.
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. They later expanded the use of the model name to other watches like this one.
