1973 Omega Geneve ref. 166.0173 with its 1181/215 bracelet
A vintage Omega is always a good choice. So what makes the difference between a good and a very good choice?
It all started in the early 1950’s when Omega began adding the word “Genève” to their 30mm watches. A watch of this type set records at the Geneva Observatory tests in 1953, and the marketing department decided to commemorate the occasion.
The success of their professional line (Seamaster, Speedmaster and Railmaster) in the late 1950s unfortunately hurt the marketing of the Geneve line. But Omega succeeds to create some of the most desirable timepieces on the market, whether it’s with their Seamaster, Speedmmaster, Constellation or Genève line.
The reference 166.0173 is coming from 1973, has all the 70s look that we love. The dial shows a nice sunburst finish, with nice indexes and batons hands.
A very cool watch, in top condition.
