The Omega Seamaster dates back to 1948 when it was introduced as a watch for the "active man". In 1965 the Seamaster Geneve was introduced which to all intents and purposes was a Seamaster - same case and movement. That finally morphed into simply the Geneve in 1967.
This is an exceptionally good example from 1968. It has seen little wrist time and has been well looked after.
The sunburst silver dial is almost as new. It has stainless steel hands with matching stainless steel hour batons. Sweep seconds hand. It has an applied stainless steel Omega logo and in black print, it is marked Omega Geneve. Original Omega crown and original Omega acrylic with the Omega logo etched in the centre.
The stainless steel case has only very minor scratches from light use. On the case back, it is etched with the Omega logo, Seamaster and the Seamaster sea monster. Inside is the Omega 601 manual wind movement in excellent condition.
The watch comes with an excellent David Shackman (DS & S) Milanese steel deployment bracelet. These top-quality bracelets by Shackman sell for about £300 in good used condition! It has the Omega logo and a personal inscription. Currently, it is set up for a wrist of about 170mm but can be expanded to about 182mm.
