VINTAGE 1972 OMEGA GENEVE STAINLESS STEEL AUTOMATIC CALENDAR WATCH WITH CALIBRE 1481 MOVEMENT

THIS SUPER VINTAGE OMEGA WAS MANUFACTURED IN 1972, CONFIRMED BY IT’S INDIVIDUAL MOVEMENT NUMBER 33744799 AND IT IS VERY NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION. THE ‘GENEVE’ RANGE BY OMEGA WAS CONSIDERED TO BE THE BASIC LINE OF OMEGA’s AT THE TIME, HOWEVER THEY ALL USED EXACTLY THE SAME ULTRA-HIGH QUALITY MOVEMENTS AS THE MORE EXPENSIVE MODELS.
THIS PARTICULAR EXAMPLE HOUSES THE AUTOMATIC CALIBRE 1481 MOVEMENT WITH CALENDAR AND THE EXAMPLE THAT WE SEE HERE IS IN PRISTINE CONDITION. A VERY HANDSOME WATCH, THE STAINLESS-STEEL CASE MEASURES 35mm ACROSS THE BEZEL NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 44mm TIP-TO-TIP.
THE EXCELLENT ORIGINAL SUN-BURST SILVERED DIAL WITH CONTRASTING POLISHED SILVER BATON DIVISIONS, SIGNED SIMPLY ’OMEGA AUTOMATIC – GENEVE’ WITH ‘SWISS MADE’ BELOW THE SIX. THE LUMINOUS AND BLACK FILLED POLISHED SILVER HANDS CONTRAST THE DIAL PERFECTLY.
THE ORIGINAL WINDING CROWN WITH THE’ OMEGA’ SYMBOL TO THE CENTRE IS STILL PRESENT AND THE GLASS IS THE ORIGINAL WITH THE TINY OMEGA SYMBOL TO THE CENTRE.
THE WATCH IS IN VERY NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION THROUGHOUT, WITH JUST A LITTLE LIGHT SCRATCHING TO THE BACK FROM MILD USE OVER THE YEARS. FITTED WITH A NEW FINE QUALITY ALLIGATOR-GRAIN STRAP, THIS WOULD BE AN IDEAL STARTER OMEGA FOR YOUR COLLECTION.
