The first Omega watch with the name Genéve on the dial reached the market in 1953. These watches were sleek and elegant wristwatches made in the city of Genéva. The model rapidly gained in popularity and was made on a bigger and bigger scale. But, Omega also made a special version of the Genéve in 1969, viz an Omega Genéve Chronometer, reference: BA 137.001. This is the only Genéve model with Chronometer certificate and is crowned with the very unusual cal. 602 in a solid 18 carat gold case. According to records Omega made less than 4000 examples of this model. It would be fun to know how many of them that still are alive and well (and haven’t fallen in the hands of looters and gold hunter). This condition is nothing to joke about either! It is amazing and we really love it!
