This modern Omega Geneve pocket watch was one of Omega’s longest running models. Model reference 121.1740.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1973.
It is unusual that pocket watches were finding new buyers in the seventies and eighties. This model ran from 1971 to 1985, a time that saw huge changes in the style and technology used in watches. But the good thing about being retro is the styling has already been proved to stand the test of time. This Omega Geneve pocket watch has a manual wind movement, calibre 940, with sub seconds at 6. This fifteen jewel movement is based on a Unitas calibre and that will make spares easier to get should you ever need them. The movement also features balance shock protection, something that older pocket watches never had. The white dial is close to perfect, and as the black leaf hands that provide a high contrast, making the watch very legible either in low light or as a desk clock. The acrylic crystal is the original one, signed with the Ω symbol in the centre. The chrome case is also extremely good, and overall this a very good example.
This watch will be supplied with a basic presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
