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.
This particular Omega Genève dates from 1960 and boasts a wonderful Crosshair "Pie Pan Dial, which is in fantastic condition and is extremely aesthetically pleasing.
