OMEGA Geneve Automatic Ref. 165.070 - 1969


Here we have cool Omega Geneve from the late 1960s, a wonderful vintage watch with a classic and simple watchdesign. This beautiful WRISTCLASSIC comes with a stainless steel case in great condition and unpolished. This particular example is a reference 165.070, which was released in the late 1960s. While other iterations of this reference might be gold-capped with plain, unadorned dials, this one has a gorgeous silver dial with an unusual brushed texture. The Omega-logo alongside the beautiful indexes and hands are designed in a simple and clean way. Omega first began applying "Genève" to the dials of their dressier 30mm watches in 1953. This was in honor of their 30mm calibre that set records at the Geneva Observatory. By 1967 the name began to be applied to models throughout Omega's range, such as the Omega Dynamic, that were produced in large volumes. The crown is original with the appropriate Omega-logo. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by an automatic movement cal. 552, running perfect and being serviced recently. This vintage Omega is a cool and classic timepiece. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling, and elegance. It is a splendid model inside and out, so be ready for the constant compliments sure to come your way.


Omega was founded in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt. Out of this small watch manufacture grew a large company: In 1894, the famous 19-ligne pocket watch movement was developed and named “Omega”. Omega, as the final letter of the Greek alphabet, stands for the ultimate level in perfection and quality. In the 1930 the company entered into collaboration with the S.S.I.H. (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). Out of this collaboration the Swatch Group developed. Today, Omega is the flagship of this huge company. In 1932, Omega entered its partnership with the Olympics which continues till today. When in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished the first moon landing there were equipped by Omega with the Speedmaster, and this so-called „Moonwatch“ is still regarded as one of the most significant watches in history.
