Vintage Omega Seamaster Chronograph 145.016-68 Cal. 861 Radial Dial
These Seamaster chronographs are a great time capsule of late 60s chronograph design with a 38mm stainless steel cushion case, and a "reverse panda" black dial with white subdials, laid out radially which adds a sporty element to the dial. The reverse panda layout also offers maximum legibility with contrasting white hands for timekeeping and contrasting black hands for the subdials, with a bright orange chronograph seconds hand on top. This Seamaster is powered by the Omega caliber 861 hand wound chronograph movement also found in the Speedmaster, and has just undergone a full mechanical service.
