1970 Omega Chronostop Vintage Mens Retro Sporting Chronograph Watch with Date - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5838

In 1968, Omega introduced to the world a very cool new timing instrument called the Chronostop. Capable of timing events precisely to within 1/5 second, but accomplishing this in a way unlike all previous chronographs and stopwatches, this innovative wristwatch was in a class by itself.

What you first notice when you view a Chronostop is that it is not a traditional chronograph - it seems that its second pusher and a subdial for tracking elapsed time are missing. And this is what makes these watches distinctive; the Chronostrop doesn't need them. It is in essence a stripped down chronograph with flyback. Once the chronograph has started its timing, the button can be depressed and held to read the time and when it is released it flysback to a stopped zero position.

Our Chronostop is in gorgeous restored condition. It is fully Omega and has been restored to present in beautiful condition. The dial has been previously refinished in a slightly more dressier custom style than the original - in gloss black and without 1/5 second markings. The printing is very high quality and could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

As part of the restoration the movement has been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmakers and is running very true.

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