Omega Chronostop Genève Ref. 146.009 Vintage Chronograph, circa 1968
Description 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. Omega used two movements for its Chronostop models: the cal.920 (with a date), and the cal.865 (no date). Both manual-wind movements had 17 jewels, run at a rapid 21,600 bph, and were used only on the Chronostop. The cal.865 movement was introduced in 1966 and Omega used that model for 124,000 Chronostops. 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.
Encased in 35 mm steel case that is protected by original Omega Plexiglass.
The watch is in good condition: keeps accurate time and has aged patina.
