Omega Mens rare Seamaster Geneve Automatic vintage 1960's mechanical watch + Box
What set's this apart from other vintage Omega is the Seamaster Geneve cross breed name on the dial. Very rare to have both Seamaster and Geneve model. Overall looks and works wonderful.
The movement (engine of the watch) is Automatic so it will never need a battery. It's self winding when being worn or to top up instant reserve power for 24 hours it can be hand wound once a day.
The new watch box seen in the picture will be supplied. Naturally this also will help protect the item in transit.
We offer a 30 day Return / Warranty.
The strap gives this a watch a modern twist and personally we think looks really good. However if you prefer a more class black or dark brown leather strap please let us know shortly after checkout and we can swap.
We do not recommend jumping into the water with any vintage watch. Although this bears the Seamaster name and was once upon a time classed as 30m waterproof this usually last 2 years then needs to be checked. This info is in the original handbook and still applies to modern Omega Seamasters although no one hardly ever reads that bit...basically keep away from high humidity rooms like shower rooms just to be sure.

The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in excellent condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.

Some trivia on Omega watches:
1. In 1848 a 23 year old named Louis Brandt is credited with starting the brand which later became Omega.

4. Omega was a major supplier of watches to large ministries of defense, especially during the 1st and 2nd World Wars. The company's timepieces would go on to be used by the armed and special forces of British, France, Italy, USA, Norway, Sweden, Canada to name a few.
5. Important musicians including Elvis, Beatles members & Buddy Holly have been photographed wearing Omega watches including the Constellation range.

9. The Geneva Line, created in 1953, was made as an homage to our workshops in Geneva where OMEGAs best regulators were working. The line was finally discontinued in 1979 as the law in Geneva stipulates that a brand must have a presence in the canton of Geneva to include the word Geneva or any variation of on the dial.
10. Omega has four main vintage watch families today that are well known to everyone interested in the brand: Seamaster, Geneve, Constellation and De Ville.
