1972 Omega Geneve (Ref. 162.0042) Cal. 1481
The world of vintage Omega is vast. It's filled with interesting and unique references, to a degree unlike almost any other manufacturer. This is true whether one wishes to get weird with a racing, dress, diving, or any other category of watch. Omega has them all. The 1970s especially were a time when the watch world as a whole actively tested the limits of design, of what a watch could be and how it could look, not just what it could do.
|Bracelet||Omega "Beads of Rice" Bracelet|
The ref. 162.0042 features a 35 millimeter case with a bulging square shape. The mix of curvature within the rigidity of the square creates a totally unique look that finds it just as easy to navigate casual wear as it does dressing up. The Omega Automatic features a beautiful beads of rice style bracelet and is powered by the caliber 1481, a self winding movement developed between Omega and Tissot in the early 70s.
The dial is a striking sunburst silver with black inlaid steel hour markers and black pencil shaped hands. From every angle this dial picks up fantastic light and creates a look that will pull it back onto your wrist day after day.
None. The watch is keeping time perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
