Omega Chronostop 'Drivers' Edition Watch
If you hold out your wrist and imagine wearing this you'd realise pretty quick that this watch is the wrong way around.
Interestingly, the award winning Omega Chronostop was designed so drivers could wear it under their wrist and glance down at the time without taking their hand off the steering wheel.
Even better, if you needed to time your 0-60mph in 1966 the chronograph was a one button push to start, stop and reset and you could measure up to 60 seconds.
The chronostop won the 1967 Swiss Watchmaking Federations Honour Prize for 'chronographs & sport watches'. It was also awarded 1st prize for Industrial Aesthetics at the Utrecht Spring Fair in '68. The model also became the official Omega timer at the Pan-American Games in Winnipeg and the Olympic Games in Mexico the same year.
Presented here is a fantastic example from the period. The dial is in superb condition and the case has been restored back to the factory finish. The watch comes complete with all original features, original mesh bracelet with original Omega folding clasp.
This is a watch only example.
