Omega Rattrapante Stopwatch - Model Ref MG6358 - C. 1970s - Lemania Caliber  19063A Movement  - Excellent condition

Omega has long upheld a tradition of timing events, particularly large-scale sporting events so when OMEGA began its relationship with the Olympic Games at the summer events in Los Angeles, it made history. It was the first time the Olympic Games entrusted a single brand to be the official timekeeper. So of course if you are going to buy a stopwatch - it should be an OMEGA, based on this illustrious history and pedigree. And what a beauty we have here for you. 

What’s On Offer 

This vintage Omega stopwatch is in wonderful condition with only slight signs of wear to the case which is remarkable given its age. The stopwatch boasts a Lemania rattrapante movement (rattrapante roughly translated from French means “catch up,” - a chronograph movement with an additional seconds hand for the chronograph function superimposed over the normal second's hand and an additional pusher).

To the reverse of the case, engraving details the watch was gifted to somebody for the longevity of service in 1974, a lovely bit of provenance and insight into the watch's history. This really is a thing of beauty and would make a great addition to any collection or an absolutely wonderful gift in keeping with its story so far...
