Omega Chronostop Genève Ref. 146.009 circa 1969

A steel vintage chronograph wristwatch with date

A handsome example of the Chronostop model, this Omega has a matt grey dial which is in excellent condition. The luminescent dots above the numerals have an attractive, warm tone with perfect colour match to the luminescent panels within the hands. The stainless steel case retains good definition and has an Omega signed crystal and crown – there are some light scuffs and scratches to the case.

Ref. 146.009 was first introduced in 1968. The 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. The date changes each day at midnight, however, the watch also has provision for semi-quick date change, allowing the date to be manually advanced, when required, by turning the hands backwards and forwards between 10pm and midnight.

The watch is fitted with its original long Omega folding adjustable clasp and a new handmade wild boar leather tapered strap.
