1956 Omega Geneve in Solid 9ct Gold with Original Two-Tone Dial & Arrowhead Batons

This Watch

A rather popular and sought-after vintage Omega model with a beautiful original two tone dial along with very prominent, facet, applied arrow markers . A highly attractive dial with an unusually simple and understated cross-hair subsidiary seconds. Also note a quite unusual 'Geneve' in script. The dial has a soft even patina there which gives no doubt on originality. Three piece solid 9ct yellow gold, fully signed Omega case, fully hallmarked and correctly signed, 'Omega.' This is the more compact 33mm version and others were produced in 36mm

What we think

This watch speaks for its self really.  The pictures only giving a feel for how attractive it really is. This one needs to be seen to be believed and about as good a vintage, preowned dress Omega watch as you will find. All original and a very attractive patina to the dial. Fully serviced by us in our on site workshop and running strongly.   Perfect for the vintage watch newbie or even the hardened collector.
