    Omega Geneve $60 Pawn Find!

    Hey guys hadn't posted this here on the Public forum but I am now since I got everything figured out. Picked this up for $60 at a pawn shop and they had priced it so low because the crystal was banged up. The watch itself is nearly perfect except for the crystal. No gold wearing off the case, dial is original, crown is original, runs smoothly but could use a simple service. Had the crystal polished up although it could use a new one as it's still in poorer shape. Watch has a complete 600 Caliber movement which apparently is a very nice Omega movement. The watch needs a good brown leather strap... I'm thinking lizard. Extremely pleased with this purchase and I love finding Omegas for cheap!

    Very nice Omega Geneve. Expansion bracelets can abrade the lugs so you may want to get a nice leather strap.

    jOHN ms IS RIGHT ABOUT EXPANSION BRACELETS MESSING UP LUGS. eVEN WORSE IS THE FACT THAT THEY CAN HOLD THEIR WEIGHT IN PREVIOUS OWNERS SWEAT/OIL/EXFOLIATED SKIN CELLS.

    A big Fonzy style thumbs up on your score. I'd rip off the bracelet and put it on a leather strap, but that's just my preference.
