Omega Chronostop Ref. 145.009 vintage wristwatch, 1967
A stainless steel manually wound fly-back chronograph wristwatch with grey dial
Omega introduced the Chronostop Ref.145.009 in 1966. The unusual chronograph movement allows the centre seconds hand to be used either as a constant seconds hand or to time events up to one minute in duration. The pusher for the chronograph will start the seconds hand running when pressed for the first time, pressing a second time will automatically zero the seconds hand to the 12 o’clock position. This function can also be used to synchronise the watch to a time signal if the seconds hand is kept in its running position.
Omega manually wound calibre 865 movement with lever escapement, 17 jewels, mono-metallic balance, 21,600 BPH, Incabloc shock absorber ; matte grey dial, applied wedge shaped baton numerals with luminous dots above, luminescent hands (please note that luminescence will have naturally dulled with age), orange chronograph seconds hand; stainless steel case with satin finished bezel, screw-down case back, Omega crystal and winding crown; case, dial, movement and crown signed.
