Upon its release in 1966, the Chronostop was equipped with all the bells and whistles afforded to a top-of-the-line sports watch of that era. With an extremely accurate 21,600 half beats per hour running speed, shock resistance and internal anti magnetic protection, it immediately garnered the top prize in the prestigious Federation Horologer competition.
More notably, the Chronostop came equipped essentially with the same manual wind, 17 jewels Omega caliber 865 movement, as the technically superior Speedmaster models. Though it was merely missing the additional 12 hour register and external anti magnetic dust cover, possessed instead by the Speedmaster,it was valued only at about half the price. Though at the time of its release it was considered as an expensive luxury watch a, the Chronostop is now regarded as one of the best bargains among vintage watch collectors. A total of 124,000 units were produced, and yet, it has become increasingly difficult to lay hands on an original piece.
This Chronostop is in excellent working condition with a bold red chrono hand against a sea grey dial. Enquire for more details.
