OMEGA Stopwatch 1970s

 

Here we have beautiful OMEGA Stopwatch from the 1970s. Omega has a huge history in sports.

This is a 2 pusher version to stop time at any sort of sports competition. The big crystal offers a fairly wide-set bezel that gives this watch a nice presence. The dial is allover in clean condition with only light signs of use and a beautiful even patina. The simple red Omega-logo alongside the indexes and beautiful hands are harmonious and well balanced. The stopwatch is all original and powered by a mechanic Omega movement, running strong and keeping time well. It’s a cool timepiece with perfect proportions, timeless styling, and a great reference to sports.

 

Omega was founded in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt. Out of this small watch manufacture grew a large company: In 1894, the famous 19-ligne pocket watch movement was developed and named “Omega”. Omega, as the final letter of the Greek alphabet, stands for the ultimate level in perfection and quality. In the 1930 the company entered into collaboration with the S.S.I.H. (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). Out of this collaboration the Swatch Group developed. Today, Omega is the flagship of this huge company. In 1932, Omega entered its partnership with the Olympics which continues till today. When in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished the first moon landing there were equipped by Omega with the Speedmaster, and this so-called „Moonwatch“ is still regarded as one of the most significant watches in history.
