The Chronostop is an unusual model from Omega. The watch is very characteristic of the experimental 70s. In these years Omega brought the most crazy watches on the market; some striking due to extreme case shapes, some with the striking use of color and others with exceptional uses.
For the 1968 Olympic Games, a model was presented that proved to be multi-functional: the Chronostop. What is immediately noticeable is that you do not see any additional registers with counters for the minutes or hours. There is also not two but only 1 button on the side of the cabinet. This is the start but also the stop / reset button. The button must be pressed and held again after starting to be able to read the time. If you then release it, it immediately jumps back to the starting position.
The model offered here is the most sought after in the series: the Seamaster Chronostop. It is actually a diving watch with a large case of 40mm which is equipped with the extra functions of the Chronostop. Very cool, very rare and highly sought after! This watch is in good condition, has the original steel strap and has been completely prepared by our specialists.
