Omega Geneve stainless steel gentlemans' automatic calendar wristwatch manufactured 49 years ago in 1970, in great un-restored condition. This model houses the cal. 565 movement, considered to one of the finest automatic mechanisms manufactured by Omega. The case and dial present very well on the wrist and the movement is running strongly and keeping time. It is signed four times, on the dial, case, crown, crystal and movement. Vintage Omega watches are now rapidly increasing in value. And when you look at the price of a new Omega watches, which in my opinion lack both the style, quality and robustness of vintage timepieces, it is little wonder why. They are currently less than a third of the price of a new model, suitable for everyday use and in my view far superior.
Dial: factory original with a superb satin silver finish, signed "Omega Automatic Swiss Made" with silver coloured batons marking the hours. The hands are in good shape and the signed crystal is clean and clear.
Case: stainless steel in good condition, presenting very well on the wrist and measuring approximately 35 mm across, excluding the signed crown and 42 mm from lug to lug. It is signed Omega on the inside of the screw back cover. The case shows the inevitable signs of use over the years with too marks on the back of the case.
Movement: cal. 565 automatic movement with 24 jewels, running strongly and keeping time. The serial number dates the watch to 1970.
Strap: fitted with a new generic brown leather strap which attached to the watch the strap measures approximately 215 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
