What sets this apart from other Geneve Chronstop's is the original Omega Milanese Bracelet for this model.

It's Mechanical (Hand-Winding) and working perfectly. It will need a daily hand wind if being used daily.

Please be realistic with condition and do not expect new. Please study the photos but overall good condition for used / vintage dating back to the 1969.

The date display is obviously a useful / essential tool for some.

The vintage Omega market is very strong at the moment and this makes it an solid investment especially as these will only get rarer as the years go by. Perhaps a great watch to pass onto a son / grandson one day.

Some Background on this rare model

The Chronostop was well-regarded within the watch industry: the watch won the 1967 Honor Prize for “Chronographs and Sport Watches” in the competition sponsored by the Swiss Watchmaking Federation to boost creativity.

The Chronostop also took the first prize for Industrial Aesthetics at the Utrecht Spring Fair in 1968.

To be honest, the Chronostop is not the most functional chronograph ever made, but at least it is fun to use. The second hand for the stopwatch is started by pressing the single pusher, then pressed again and held to freeze the hand and read the seconds. Release the pusher and the hand fly back to 12 o’clock zero.

Unlike conventional chronographs that record seconds, minutes, and hours with two or three subdials, the Chronostop was designed to be used for short interval timing - less than one minute - with a central hand for seconds and a single pusher.

Despite the limitations of the Chronostop, some people found a good use for the specialized stopwatch: doctors and nurses used the timer to take patients’ pulses, and engineers and technicians working with production lines found the feature to be handy.

Omega released the Chronostop in 1966. Originally intended to be part of the Seamaster collection, the Chronostop was transferred to the Geneve collection in 1967 as a lower-priced chronograph watch for younger buyers.

9. The Geneva Line, created in 1953, was made as an homage to our workshops in Geneva where OMEGAs best regulators were working.

11. OMEGA SEAMASTER DE VILLE: The Omega De Ville was introduced into the Seamaster range in 1963. It was considered by Omega to be the ultimate dress-watch, the personification of elegance, but retaining the country sport mantra so eagerly aspired to by certain echelons of society in the 1960s. Although subtle and understated, at its heart remained a very sturdy accurate sports movement in a unique one-piece case.
12. The Omega Seamaster was introduced in 1948. The De Ville version of the Seamaster featured a front-loading case where the access to the movement was gained through the front of the watch rather than the back. The Seamaster De Ville was available from 1963.
