1969 Omega Seamaster chronograph ref. 145.016
One of Omega’s flagship models was the Seamaster family, which appeared in 1948. Marking the brand’s centenary, the now-iconic Seamaster originated from Omega’s military prowess, and was built to withstand any challenge at any altitude, whether in the skies or below the surface of the ocean.
Since 1948, the Omega Seamaster family has seen many models and variations, from dress watches, dive watches or chronographs.
The reference 145.016, made in a strong stainless steel case, is the perfect example of the early 1970s look. The 35mm cushion-shaped case shows strong presence while the black and white dial gives a sporty look to the whole, with the help of the dashes of orange provided by the chrono hand.
It features a 861 movement, often found in 1970s Speedmasters.
In top condition, with a nice yellow tritium tone to the dial and hands, unpolished case and original parts, it is a true killer.
