This 1968 vintage Omega Seamaster Chronostop Reference: 145.008 is housed in the hard to find oversized (pristine) case with original setting crowns.
The dial is spectacular all original with inner rotating roulette style 12/24 hour bezel, and black sunken dial with checkered minute track and original baton hands.
This particular (original) bezel is a very rare variation that is seldom found. The caliber 865 manual winding OMEGA, gilt movement is sparkling and accurate after a recent cleaning.
The Chronostop has a stopwatch function which works flawlessly, and it has a 12|24 hour rotating inner bezel with an attractive orange accent line separating the hours digits. The dial, hands, and bezel are all in exceptional condition.
Appropriately signed on dial, both crowns, and case back.
