Introduced in 1968, this oval shaped Omega vintage watch, the Geneve Dynamic, is one of the most memorable watches from this period. It’s so unusual compared to the other Omega watches with beautiful sweeping curves and amazing retro design.
A big, chunky eye catching watch at 42mm width this watch is gloriously large. The Dynamic is instantly recognisable making it a real collector’s item in today’s market.
It was designed in 1967 by Raymond Thevonaz, a classically trained architect, and then refined by Michel Cattin, the head of the Omega owned atelier Boites-Fabrication in Beinne.
In 1969 the Dynamic won first prize for innovative industrial design in a major exhibition, DYBS, held in Bienne. What makes this award so interesting is that it was not a competition in anyway related specifically to the watch industry, but to manufacturers in general. The jury there chose the Dynamic out of a selection of two hundred and fifty competing products, stating its blend of pioneering aesthetics with genuine practical improvements as the reasons for their final decision.
Condition wise, this piece is excellent. It’s pre-owned, great condition and these photos truly do not do this piece justice. For the collector looking to buy a fantastic Omega vintage watch, this piece that will only rocket in value, this makes a good choice.
If you’re merely a fan of late 60’s, early 70’s retro fashion then could certainly be the best item you ever add to your wardrobe.
