Delve deep into Omega's illustrious history with the Omega Geneve Automatic Date, a gem from the vibrant 1970s. The Geneve model occupies a special place in Omega's legacy, launched during a time when the brand sought to capture the spirit of the Swiss city known for its watchmaking prowess: Geneva.

This Geneve model stands as a testament to that period. It represents Omega's ambition to blend Geneva's horological traditions with its own innovative vision. The well proportioned 37mm case and steel bracelet give this watch a lovely weight on the wrist. 

Fresh from a comprehensive service, this vintage timepiece is in great condition, ensuring precision and reliability for every day (or special occasion only) wear.
