This is an Omega Geneve manual watch from 1972 that is in exceptionally nice condition. Its elegant design is that which reflects the era it was built and is still a classic today.
The sunburst gold dial is virtually unmarked and is hardly distinguishable from the day it was made. The black stick hands match the black topped hour batons which are gold finished with chamfered sides. The sweep seconds hand is gold coloured. It is signed Omega together with the Omega logo, Geneve and Swiss Made all in black. It has a quick-set date at 3. Pull the crown out one notch to adjust the date and two notches to adjust the time. The acrylic has a beautiful bezel edge. The are no scratches and importantly no nibbles to the edge. Original crown.
The case is gold plated to 20 microns whilst the case back is stainless steel. All of the edges are still sharp and there are no signs of wear to the gold plate. Clearly, the watch has had little wrist time and when worn has been well cared for. There are a few very tiny nicks to the case but they are very difficult to see without magnification. The brush-finished stainless steel case back is also in exceptional condition and is fully marked Omega on the inside.
The watch is run by the advanced Omega 1030 fast-beat calibre.
This Geneve is fitted with an after-market Speidel expanding bracelet. It's stainless steel but gold plated on the top and in excellent condition.
This is a medium size watch from the 70s and at just over 31mm looks best on a medium to small wrist.
