A rare, retro, vintage, Omega Chronostop Driver Watch model ST146.010 with Cal.920 movement - with date appature - from 1970. A stunning example and in near original condition & even rarer still on it's original Omega mesh bracelet Ref. 1120/116! Both the watch and bracelet have only the most minor of blemishes/signs of wear. The dial however is showing some Patina as you will see from the close up photographs and we hope you will agree this only adds to the overall character of this piece!

We have dated this watch exactly to 20th July 1970, from the original documentation that comes with this watch along with the original box (a rarity to come across one as complete).

In beautiful original condition and although working well and keeping excellent time as this calibre of watch should, it has just been sent to our workshop (13-8-13) for a complete service and light clean of the case and bracelet, so we can be 100% confident when giving it our full 12 months guarantee upon it's sale!

Rare as hens teeth to find this "Drivers with Date" model Omega and the added bonus that it comes with its original mesh bracelet fitted and box and papers, Omega signed crown and Omega signed glass. (After all it is over 43 years old)!

This is a stunning watch for any collection or to use as an everyday watch.

The watch is priced to sell and we believe the cheapest of this model and as complete a package with it's bracelet, box and papers etc. in this condition that we can find anywhere.

All the others we have seen listed for sale or indeed one previously in our own collection, seem either to have replacement leather none Omega straps or none original bracelets fitted. The bracelet alone in it's condition we think is worth over £200.00!

Be quick as we don't think this will be around long!

Your watch taken in PX! Please contact us.

 

A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND ON THIS PARTICULAR MODEL FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO KNOW!

Omega marketed this version as the "DRIVER" model. Please note, ...DRIVER not DIVER . With 12 o'clock at where 3 o'clock normally is, it was designed to be worn "under" the wrist, instead of in the normal position "above" the wrist. The thinking was that whilst driving ( with your hands in the "quarter to two" position ), you could read the time, without removing your hands from the steering wheel.
These watches appear to have been available with a wide variety of dial & strap colours.
