The Watch
.

When a Vintage title is a mouthful, you know this is something good. This Türler signed Omega Genève has all the details worth mentioning yet comes together to create a cohesively stunning Wristwatch.

.

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.

.

Today's example dates to 1968 and was originally retailed by the prestigious Zurich retailer Türler, whose name sits proudly on the fantastic and unusual golden Roman Numeral Dial. Inside the quality 18k Gold Case sits the excellent Omega Calibre 565 Movement, which boasts a quick set date function by pulling the Crown out fully.
