About the Model

The style of this Seamaster Chronostop model, created in 1966 and transferred to the Geneva collection in 1967, was extremely innovative when it was marketed.

The shape of its case (water-resistant to 30m), with fixed or rotating internal bezel, its anthracite gray dial with white minute track, its white hour/minute hands and its orange central second hand make it immediately recognizable.

The Chronostops were equipped with caliber 865, derived from the famous caliber 861, whose functions are as follows:

  • pusher at 2 o’clock for the start,
  • same pusher for stopping (pressure to be maintained for time reading and reset by releasing the pressure).

The Seamaster Chronostop could be equipped either with a fixed internal bezel (reference ST 145.007, with pulsometer, telemeter, tachometer or decimal scale), or a rotating one (reference ST 145.008). In that case, the crown located at 10 o’clock sets the internal 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.
