    Nice read and hell of a lot of bang for your €. If I was a starting collector these would be right up my street with all of those interesting coloured dials

    Love them on original bracelets. I bet a silver dialed version on the bracelet will have a huge '70's wrist presence!

    As a newbie watch collector, I definitely have my eyes set on snatching one of these up at some point. I do think they look amazing with brown or blue leather straps in particular. My only worry is that they may look big on wrist (which measures just under 7").

    At under 7”, the world is your oyster for vintage pieces in the 31-34mm range. Small wrists has its privileges so revel in it!

    This is very true! I always figured something around 34mm would probably do the trick, depending on the lug to lug measurement.

    Great article! My 136.0102 pair says hi :)

    Genève 136.0102 might be the value choice in vintage Omega (together with 135.041). I think these look fun with just the right amount of 70s funk. I've been looking for a red dial variant, but those are getting expensive. Good ones end up in the $400-500 range.

    Yes sir. Plenty of sun 36 goodness for the small wristed among us.
