DAPPER~1969 OMEGA GENEVE TANK~SERVICED

Regular price $0.00 $999.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER SWANKY OMEGA DEVILLE TANK FROM 1969. ALL ORIGINAL WITH FRESHLY SERVICED CAL.601

 

  • CASE: SEXY ALL STEEL SQUARE TANK CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MEASURING 31mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN.  ALL THE ORIGINAL FACTORY FINISHES ARE INTACT AND THE CONDITION IS AMAZING. SOME VERY MINOR SMALL DINGS ON THE LUGS, BUT OVERALL THIS THING IS PRETTY CLOSE TO MINT.  
  • DIAL: I'LL TELL YOU WHAT....THIS DIAL IS PRETY SWANK'D OUT. THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOLD BLACK MARKERS AND HANDSET AGAINST THAT SUNBURST SILVER DIAL. AND, WITH  ONLY 2 LINES OF TEXT, ITS MINIMALIST LOOK REALLY COMES TO LIFE AMID THAT POWERFUL CONTRAST. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THOSE APPLIED STEEL/ONYX MARKERS AT 12/3/6/9 WHICH ADD A NICE POP OF DEPTH. ALL VIEWED UNDER THE ORIGINAL SIGNED CRYSTAL. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS GENEVE RUNS ON AN IN-HOUSE  17J OMEGA CAL.601 MANUAL WINDER WHICH HAS BEEN KEEPING GOOD TIME AND WINDING EFFORTLESSLY.  I JUST HAD THIS ONE SERVICED, AND SHE'S TICKING AWAY WITH PURPOSE AND EFFICIENCY. 

    I'VE GOT THIS SEAMASTER MOUNTED ON A QUITE LOVELY 18mm TAN LEATHER STRAP WHICH LENDS A NICE CASUAL VIBE TO THIS GENTLEMANLY WATCH. I'VE SEEN SIMILAR OMEGA GENEVEs  BEFORE, BUT NEVER ONE WITH THIS EXACT DIAL/HANDSET COMBO, AND IT'S A REALLY FAR-OUT LOOK. POP THIS GUY ON A BLACK CROCODILE STRAP TO DRESS IT UP, OR LEAVE IT AS-IS ON THE TAN STRAP TO PLAY A FEW ROUNDS OF STICK BALL IN THE ALLEY. THIS IS JUST A GREAT CLASSIC PIECE FROM MY FAVORITE YEAR IN WATCH DESIGN HISTORY: 1969, BABY.
