Omega "Automatic Seamaster"

, Ref. 176.001 / 176.007, Cal. 1040, 41 x 51 mm, circa 1972

An automatic 1970's vintage chronograph in "Tonneau" shape with blue tachymeter scale, central 60 min. counter with blue tip and cult caliber 1040 in near mint condition

Case: steel, screw back with Seamaster logo. Dial: radial satined blue. Movm.: rotorwind movement.

This chronograph has achieved cult status not just with the gorgeous combination of a satin-finished blue dial with a blue 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 orange-coloured seconds counter; its striking form reminds the viewer of an aeroplane. 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: very good
Dial: as new
Movm.: very good, capable of running
