Other: Looking for a gorgeous vintage dress watch from a powerhouse brand without breaking the bank? Look no further than this Omega Genève Automatic watch. At 35mm excluding the crown and powered by a thin, self-winding movement, it's the perfect size for a dress watch and is sure to slide under the cuff of a shirt or dinner jacket. We also recommend wearing it casually with a plain t-shirt and your favorite pair of jeans. Speaking of the movement, the Omega cal. 1010 hums along at a high rate of 28,800 beats per hour and features a convenient quick-set date with hacking seconds capability. This particular Omega Genève also comes with a bit of history. It was presented to Harold O. Dole in 1976 for 30 years of service to A. O. Smith Corp. A. O. Smith is headquartered in Milwaukee, so it comes as no surprise that we found the watch locally here in Wisconsin. It must have been an incredibly exciting and proud moment for Harold to receive a brand new Omega watch for that many years of loyal service and dedication to one company. It is our honor to pass his watch along to the next deserving caretaker.
