Omega Genève Ref. 136.015 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1969
An unusual stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch with crown guards
Ref. 136.015 is a very unusual model that was first introduced by Omega in 1967. This reference has a distinctive matt white dial with printed orange markers at each five-minute/five-second increment together with a matching orange centre seconds hand. The steel case has unusual long lugs and there are pronounced crown guards, a feature seldom seen on vintage Omega models. Manually wound the watch is powered by Omega’s calibre 613 which has provision for quick date change – when the crown is pulled out to its second position, the date automatically flips forwards.
