At the best of times an Omega Chronostop in good working condition is a collectors item, when you throw in the fact that this watch comes freshly serviced, with all documentation from the original sale in Manchester 1968, an Omega steel presentation box, original Omega shark mesh bracelet and clasp and is in great all round condition you’re looking at an opportunity that comes along very rarely.
Collectors will be aware of the history of this watch but in essence it was a watch Omega originally produced as part of the Seamaster range in 1966 then rebranded and made part of their Geneve offering prior to the 1968 Mexico Olympics, it was designed, marketed and priced to appeal to a younger buyer. It features a single Chronograph pusher, press to start the timer, press again to stop and release to send it back to the start. The case is a compact 35mm diameter by 10mm thickness, the stainless steel bracelet was only ever used on this model and is so fine it feels like you could be wearing a NATO strap. The movement , crown and glass are all marked with the Omega insignia.
This has been my own watch and it’s been a tough decision to let it go but it’s rarely worn, anyone buying this will be getting a stone cold classic. The box and bracelet alone are valuable so I won’t be letting this go on the cheap. If you want to make a sensible offer that reflects the above please message.
