    Help Identifying a stolen Omega Genève - Post dedicated to all pictures of the Genève

    This is my first post here, but I love Omega's, since the point I inherited one on my grandfather's death. Unfortunately this watch was later stolen from me in a robbery. I have always been deeply disappointed with it's loss as it was a great time-piece as well having lots of sentimental value.

    After a number of years I have finally been able to afford to buy a new Omega replacement, but this has renewed my interest in identifying the stolen watch.

    In posting a description here I am hoping that someone will be able to recognise the watch from my description and provide some details.

    Please post pictures of any OMEGA Genève you have, information about the model will be particularly helpful: -
    * Omega Reference Number
    * Production Year
    * Case Material
    * etc.

    Here is as much as detailed description of the stolen watch as possible (unfortunately I don't have any other details or pictures).

    Glass: Had a small Omega sign in the very centre.
    Dial: Had a gold face at the mid-top has the Omega sign, Omega underneith followed by AUTOMATIC. On the mid-bottom the face had the word Genève. The hours had black markers surrounded by gold, except at the three o-clock position where there was the date surrounded by a black box. In between the hour markers was 5 minute markers, marked in black. At the very bottom was the marking T - Swiss Made - T. Each hour mark had a luminous dot. The hands were also marked with luminous inserts, and the watch had a sweep second hand.
    Case Material: I am 99% sure the case was solid gold (18ct).
    Case Back: Stainless steel, I cannot remember what was there apart from numbers and squarish holes to undo the back.
    Winder: had the Omega mark on it.
    Bracelet: was gold plated stretch strap, with stainless steel underside. At the wrist there was a square with the Omega sign.

    Not sure if this is a good description, but I am happy to clarify/ammend if you would like to add comments. Please help by posting pictures, and hopefully I will see something similar.

    Here is a link to an old webpage which featured the Omega Geneve line. Unfortunately, the pictures have been taken down.

    Here is another collector's Geneve site:

    Gonna be a tough one

    Whew, this is going to be a tough one, just because Omega branded so many different watches as "Geneve" over the course of several decades.

    I'd suggest you look through some catalogues on Steve's excellent old-omegas.com and see if you can spot it.

    Best of luck!

    Re: Help Identifying a stolen Omega Genève - Post dedicated to all pictures of the Genève

    I have been doing some research into my missing watch and have found out what it was. It was a cal. 565, and I think was a BA166.????

    I have found the following pictures of a watch which looks really similar. It was 18ct gold, and had the same strap as this. If anyone can identify this watch model I would be really grateful.
