1972 Omega Geneve (Ref. 166.098) Blue Dial 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 wristwatch. 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||2pc Handmade Leather Strap|
The no-nonsense and classic straight lug case is in beautiful original condition, showing no major signs of use. The case retains its original Omega-signed crown. The case back is crisp, showing on gentle signs of use.
The original blue sunburst dial is both vibrant and striking, remaining in fantastic condition with only nominal elements of age. The tritium lume plots have taken on a handsome golden coloration and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original white hands contrast the dial for high visibility, the tritium lume in the hands has aged a shade darker than the dial and features some subtle cracking but remains stable when inspected under U.V. light.
None. The watch is keeping time perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
