Omega "Automatic Seamaster"

, Movement No. 35074836, Ref. 176.007, Cal. 1040, 38 x 43 mm, circa 1973

An automatic 1970's 'new old stock' vintage chronograph with central 60 min. counter with orange-coloured tip and cult caliber 1040

Case: steel, screw back. Dial: radial satined silvered. Movm.: rotorwind movement.

This chronograph has achieved cult status not just with the gorgeous combination of a matte silvered dial with a wide white tachymetre scale and the curved brushed steel case but also with its automatic movement featuring Omega’s "cult" calibre 1040.
It is a modified Lemania calibre 1340 and important for a number of reasons. The calibre was first introduced in 1970 as the first automatic chronograph movement with 28,800 oscillations per hour. It also permitted the use of a central minute chronograph hand which sits below the blue seconds counter. The Seamaster Chronograph was launched in 1971 and remained on the market until 1974. It is considered a highly desirable collector’s piece amongst the lovers of vintage Omega watches.
Case: as new, restaurations
Dial: as new
Movm.: as new, capable of running
