Up for grabs,

1969 Omega Grand Sport (right near the end). Bought in original but non-running shape, gone through servicing now. The Grand Sport is a pretty rare Canadian market model, 35mm case (without crown).

The movement is a cal 565 (which is found in some Seamasters, deVilles, and others) is a gorgeous automatic 24 jewel movement. Movement is quick-set date, and is gorgeously finished. Ilya at Goldtime just serviced this (a week ago), full work over on the movement and some work on the hairspring. He put a lot of effort into it, and it runs and keeps time beautifully! Case is 18k either plated or filled yellow gold with a screw-down back. 

The dial, hands and most components are all original and unrestored (so they show some patina and wear), case has not been polished heavily and has some wear scratches. The crystal was replaced when the watch was serviced as was the crown (but it's now got an original signed crown).  

I love the watch, but have my sights set on something a tiny bit different! Takes an 18mm strap, currently on a piero magli genuine lizard strap. 

Asking $1200, only listed on here right now. If you want to take a look I'd suggest seeing it in person as the pics don't do it justice...come have a coffee and see it!
