Omega Seamaster Chronostop

Omega Seamaster Chronostop

SKU: VWS-1514

Here is a wonderful, all original Omega Seamaster Chronostop from 1968. The charcoal dial is in very fine condition, with a red Omega logo and white lettering. It has faceted steel hour markers with lume dots at the outer ends, while the 12 o’clock marker is wedge shaped and filled with lume. Outside the hour markers is the chapter ring with markings per 0.2 second for the stopwatch function. The black rehaut shows the tachymeter scale. The white baton hands have the original lume and black roots and are in very fine condition. The seconds hand is painted red and is in very fine condition.


The stainless steel watch face has a sunburst pattern and is in very fine condition, with only light overall wear. The stainless steel case with the original crown and pusher and embedded lugs is in overall very fine condition, with brushed sides and sharp, polished bevels and very little visible wear apart from a scuff on the left case side. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition, with a well preserved hippocampus logo and a few scratches at the notches in the rim.


The stopwatch function is started, stopped and reset by successive presses on the pusher. It can record time up to 60 seconds. Many users like to keep the seconds hand running to show the seconds as in a standard watch.


The watch comes on an after market bovine leather strap of good quality. 


Inside the watch, Omega’s high grade caliber 865 beats strongly and accurately to within about +-8 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in November 2021 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Chronostop is a piece of watch history and this one looks spectacular on the wrist. This is a watch that can be worn for both formal and more casual occasions and it is great as part of a regular rotation schedule.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
