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.
