OMEGA SEAMASTER CHRONOGRAPH
Rare and fine stainless steel manual-winding chronograph wristwatch with grey dial and 3 registers
In 1948, Omega introduced in its range the “Seamaster” model. It was produced in various versions, from the simple classic three-hand to the chronograph or diver’s watch. They all have the same thing in common: good water-resistance, to effectively prevent dust from blocking the train wheel or humidity from oxidizing the movements and deteriorating the dials. Omega then manufactures a large number of models called Seamaster.
In the 1970s, the masterminds working at the manufacture of timepieces began to let their imagination run wild. New case shapes with extravagant dimensions, bright and varied colours appeared, which upset the rather austere criteria of watches from the past. About ten crazy years that really produce new watches, before returning in the 1980s to a “wiser” production.
So in 1970 is launched this Seamaster chronograph, which respects the very interesting criteria of this period.
A 40-mm diameter stainless steel tonneau-shaped case, a very beautiful grey dial matches perfectly with the orange hour, minute and second hands which are different from the white chronograph hands.
The chronograph has three registers, a permanent second hand at 9, a 30-min totalizer at 3 and a 12-hour totalizer at 6.
Manual-winding mechanical manufactured movement.
This Omega chronograph with original criteria remains very elegant. Its very current colors make it a very interesting and successful watch overall, to be worn of course without any moderation.
