Back from service

Feb 11, 2021,12:19 PM

My Omega Geneve 'TV Dial' is back from the local watchmaker. The only part that needed replacement was the balance staff. It's running at 275 degrees and +5 seconds dial up. Not bad. Of course real world performance won't be anywhere near that, but performance was never really the point of this watch. I'm just glad to see that gorgeous round square back on my wrist.

Could u share more info about this watch? Such as the movement (in house or ETA) or the exact model name and number? I am asking because my father has the same one. My mother found it in the corner of her drawer in 2016 and gave it to me. I got serviced a...

I don't know too much about the fine details of this watch either. I know it is powered by the cal. 1012 movement. Another member of the forum here told me that this series of movements were designed in collaboration with lemania, but they were manufactur...

I will check the forum. I was surprised to see they started making this in 1976. Thats my birth year. Enjoy yours in great happiness!

No problem!

I'm not sure 1976 was the first year of this model. It was definitely sold in 1976 (hence its appearance in the catalogue from that year), but it may have been around before then. Either way, it is definitely a product of the 70s in every sense.
