This early Seamaster Chronometer is presented in excellent overall condition. The dial furniture is especially attractive with its applied Breguet numbers and quad faceted batons. Very stylish and a very unusual combination. Matching dagger hands with sweep seconds hand. Applies Omega logo. Signed Omega, Automatic, Certified Chronometer, Seamaster and Swiss Made, all in black. Genuine Omega acrylic with light scratches. Correct signed Omega crown.
The case is stainless steel with contrasting gold capped lugs and a solid gold bezel. The case-back is stainless steel.
Inside is the Omega chronometer grade 352 calibre. Originally this would have been tested at an independent laboratory over 360 hours in 5 different positions and at 5 temperatures. I'd guess that only about 1% of Seamasters of this era were up to this chronometer standard. The 352 was introduced in 1949 and went on to be the first automatic movement to be fitted in the highly acclaimed Constellation chronometer. It's a bumper which refers to it having an internal rotor that bumps back and forth when worn, automatically winding the watch up.
Comes with a used non-Omega leather strap with a gold coloured Omega signed buckle.
