The Geneve range was introduced by Omega in 1953 to represent some of its more luxurious watches. They were named after the famous Geneve observatory. The models were less bulky than the robust Seamasters and had a more elegant appearance.
This is a 1969 model in a 14k solid gold case. The champagne coloured dial is in very good condition with only a few very light marks. The gold hour batons are riveted to the dial and are topped with black lines. Matching hour and minute hands. Sweep seconds hand. Signed Omega, Geneve and Swiss Made. The crown has been replaced.
The case is very presentable and, as always with solid gold, it could be polished to look new. There are minor dints and scratches but little to suggest that this is a 50-year-old watch. Inside the case back it's fully hallmarked for Omega and gold.
The movement is the Omega calibre 601. This successful slim calibre was manufactured for 14 years.
Comes fitted with a new brown leatyher non-Omega strap.
