1968 Omega Seamaster Chronometer Large Vintage Mens Cal. 564 Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 7059

Seamaster Chronometer made post 1952 are one of Omega's seldom seen vintage watches. These watches featured all of the rugged spottiness of the Seamaster line coupled with an officially certified chronometer movement.

After their release and after Omega divided the line into two models, the "plain" Seamaster, a sport watch without chronometer certification, and the Constellation, the higher-end chromometer option, Omega only made a relatively few Seamaster Chronometer, and these watches with caliber 564 movements are desirable and uncommon.

With a large 36.5mm diameter, it is full size, just slightly larger than a Rolex Datejust.

Today's offering showcases this pleasing Seamaster Chronometer with original spun silver dial that is just short of perfect mint. It has all its original parts down to all of the hands, crown, and even signed Omega crysta! Its case is scratch-free.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.Its officially certified chronometer movement is near pristine. Photos of the inside available upon request.

For the finishing touch we have installed a new genuine crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

A dress watch with truly impressive capabilities.

Note: A published example of a Seamaster chronometer watch can be found in John Goldberger's work Omega Watches, 2005, pg. 137.
