The Omega Geneve line was created in 1953 as a homage to Omega workshops in Geneva where the best regulators were working. The line represents 60% of the brands production by 1970 and was discontinued in 1979 as the law in Geneva stipulates that a brand must have a presence in the canton of Geneva to include the word Geneva or any variation on the dial. At the beginning of the 70s, the latter gentleman’s model was offered to all male employees having worked at Omega for at least one year. Female employees had a funding supplement, which they could use toward any model of their choice, the majority chose the Dynamic.
