The Omega Geneve is a line of watches produced by the Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega. The Geneve collection is known for its elegant and timeless design, focusing on classic aesthetics and understated luxury.

The Omega Geneve was introduced in 1960s as a separate line within the Omega brand. It was created to cater to customers who preferred a more sporty and chic style compared to some of Omega's less sportier offerings. The early Geneve models featured manual-winding movements and a clean, refined design.

During the quartz revolution of the 1970s, Omega adapted by incorporating quartz movements into their range of watches. This period saw the introduction of both analog and digital quartz Geneve models, reflecting the changing preferences of the era.

In the 1990s, Omega refocused on mechanical movements and traditional craftsmanship. The Geneve collection received renewed attention, with watches powered by automatic and hand-wound movements. The designs continued to emphasize sophistication and classic design elements.

The De Ville collection also offers a range of watches designed specifically for women. These models often feature smaller case sizes, intricate detailing, and a mix of materials and precious stones.

Here we have a serviced Stainless Steel 1969 Omega Geneve Lady movement 485 calibre Mechanical Watch in excellent condition.

It has a beautifully preserved and unique bluish-black dial, 3D-styled baton Indices, and hands that were given a good clean-up.

Its classy and stylish silver case was buffed as best as possible without compromising its shape and lines albeit a few minor scratches that are barely noticeable to the naked eye. The crystal is original and is constructed from mineral glass.

The crown is located at the traditional 3H position and is easily accessible.

The movement was given a general service and general calibration on 28 August 2023. Its timekeeping is excellent i.e. ± 1 minute every 24 hours, and should be able to operate unhindered for the next 5 to 10 years at the very least thereby providing the owner peace of mind.

The case width and height are approximately 23.5mm (without crown) and 26mm respectively. The lug width is 10mm and the leather strap can accommodate wrists up to 18.0cm.

A brand new good quality vintage crocodile style genuine black leather strap with silver buckle is provided as part of the deal.

Due to its age, this timepiece has not been water-resistant tested.

The pictures provided show the watch is in mint condition. It has also been demagnetised to improve parts reliability, minimise wear & tear, and improve accuracy. The only drawback is the lack of documentation and original box. An aftermarket box or purposeful carrying case will be provided instead.

Bear in mind that this watch has seen many of the previous owners’ ups and downs in life, and should be cherished and preserved for the next generation to savour such engineering beauty.

Yes, there are many other same / similar models in the market, BUT none as beautifully aged and as well maintained as what you see here. Another no-brainer is the fact that the value of this watch will appreciate over time.

Do also bear in mind that it will cost between S$ 80.00 to S$ 100.00 for a general but good servicing and S$ 60.00 for basic calibration of an Omega timepiece; and S$ 30.00 to polish the watch case - these costs do not apply when purchasing this timepiece. So, if anyone was to sell such a timepiece at a low price yet claim that it has been serviced, one has to ask what kind of servicing was conducted, if any.

This is a beautiful timepiece that would make a beautiful present for that special someone.

This is a must-have for the Omega die-hard fan, and in fact, any serious watch collector for that matter!
