    On the suggestion of @Bill Sohne how about we have a thread on these under appreciated, Gerald Genta designed chronometers?

    I’ll kick things off!

    I picked up this 168.029 with a cal. 751 inside, out of an auction last year, took it to STS for a service, and some links, wore it a handful of times, and then needed funds to pay for boring things, so off it went to live with @Tiger8888.

    I kinda regretted this, but nerds must.

    This week I picked up this 168.017 from a couple of fuzzy eBay pictures.

    I called in to see Tony at STS today, and am pleased to report that it contained a dirty, if untouched cal. 564.

    It’s booked in for a full service, and gentle case refinish to bring it back to tip-top shape.

    So those are mine (for now) - let’s see what you’ve got ladies and gents!

    That gold one @Bill Sohne - WOW!

    Is this the model that gets referred to as the “deluxe”?

    Gold everything... :cool:

    I like them. I've always assumed that C case stood for cushion, but never had confirmation. Does it?

    Hey,

    Here is my 18k gold one. It has a different bracelet. What do you think about the condition? The seller made an over 1000€ revision at Omega

    Regards

    There was a time less than a decade ago that you could get really nice examples for that money. With original bracelets they were under $600.
