Omega Genève Chronostop Ref. 145.009 circa 1967 | steel vintage chronograph
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.
A good clean example of the model, the case has been lightly and sympathetically polished and the bezel re-satined. The dial is in very attractive condition, the luminescent dots and panels to the hands have an even and warm patina – they still glow well, indicating that they have been refreshed at some stage in the past. We have fitted the watch with one of our rally-style leather watch straps.
