About the Model

Launched in 1968-1969, the Omega Seamaster Chronograph model is equipped with the famous Speedmaster caliber 861.

It was produced with a white or anthracite gray dial, with a specific sub-counter located at 3 o’clock, which is a 30-minute totalizer, red and black, with the highlighting of the last 5 minutes of half-time (40- 45), hence his nickname Soccer.

The sub-counter located at 6 o’clock is a 12-hour totalizer divided into 4 red and black sectors.

This model was available in 2 versions:

  • reference ST 145.020 (large format, 41 mm), with a dial fitted with a 500-60 km/h tachometric scale,
  • reference ST 145.016 (38,5 mm) without tachymeter scale.

In 1969, a new version was commercialized by Omega, with an internal rotating bezel: the reference ST 145.019 (large format, 41 mm).

This brand new model could be fitted with 4 optional bezels:

  • Diver, with a 0-60 scale,
  • Regata, with a 60-0 scale and the last 10 minutes blue and red,
  • Pilot, with a gray 1/12-13/24 scale,
  • or Roulette, with a white 1/12-13/24 scale (the rarest of all).

The secondary crown at 10 o’clock sets the internal rotating bezel.

About the Brand

In 1848, Louis Brandt founded a company in La Chaux-de-Fonds which would become Omega. In the 1880s, the Louis Brandt & Fils company moved to its current site in Bienne and in 1894 the caliber Omega was created, which would give its name to the company. Renowned for its precise, innovative and affordable watches, it became the largest supplier of watches to the British Army during World War II. It also became the first company to time the Olympic Games in 1932. Among its range of numerous professional watches, the Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the moon in 1969.
