    Need help ID'ing Vintage Omega Seamaster Geneve

    Hey everyone, I was wondering if you might be able to help me ID this vintage Omega Seamaster Geneve.

    My friend brought this to me, told me is was his grandfather's. He doesn't know how old it is but here are a few picures.







    The model/movement number etched into the caseback is as follows:

    136017-TOOL 107

    The watch is currently not running and I'm unsure if it's a "wind up" or just needs a new battery.
    There is no way to remove the caseback so I'm assuming access to the movement and battery, if there is one, is via the watch face.

    Any and all information you may have regarding this watch is very welcome and allow me to thank you in advance for your help.

    Thanks, WUS!

    Hi there,

    The watch looks to be a bit of a 'Franken' to me.

    The case type I have seen used on Omega seamaster cosmic watches.... I have not seen a geneve in that type of case. The case clearly says seamaster... which you should also see on the dial!

    That said, I think the dial has been refinished/replaced. The font does not look right to me (type and font style), plus, with the lack of 'swiss' or 'swiss made', the dial looks repainted.

    The hands look wrong

    as does the date wheel!

    The case may be Omega (looks ok) and you could hope the movement is also.... which should be mechanical - not 'battery'.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi there,

    it is indeed a Franken watch. Here the gold plated equivalent of this model for comparison:

    Since Omega used to apply date disks matching the color of the dial, this one formerly had a dark (black, blue...) dial.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
