A rare Omega Geneve tank model in an oversized case. Never seen another! Model reference 111.0116.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1973.
As shown in the photos. tis watch takes a lot of wrist space and is immediately noticeable. But it isn’t uncomfortable, partly due to the light weight and the very thin case. The dial is a walnut brown, and reflects light in a nice manner. The oversized hour markers are applied and certainly eye catching. The case is 20 micron gold plated and has stood up well over the years. The crystal is the original, with the Ω symbol in the centre. The movement is an Omega caliber 625, which is time only and small allowing the designer free range with the case design. It is working well. The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred (but brown is best!).
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
