Omega Seamaster Soccer Timer (Ref. 145.016-68)

This particular Omega Seamaster “Soccer Timer” Chronograph, Reference 145.016-68, escaped the jealous hands of time unaltered, weathering decades of use in remarkable shape. Its sharp, unpolished case and exotic dial give it a commanding but slim wrist presence. All original, it features the venerable cal. 861 manual wind chronograph, the very same used in the Speedmaster Moonwatch, inside a cushion case 38mm in diameter, with round pushers, signed Omega crown, and hesalite crystal. The signed 17 jewel movement has been recently serviced, keeps excellent time, all chronograph functions work as designed, and crisply reset to zero. The screw down caseback features the deep embossed, raised relief Hippocampus as well as Seameaster and Omega signage.

The dial is exceptional, with black and red halved, quartered, and ringed subregisters and a nicely contrasting white outer minute track. A nice and even patina has formed over the years, with the dial and subregisters giving way to a somewhat tropic olive-grey. Bright orange prototype hands for minute and hour make reading the time a breeze. An exquisite composition of colors and function, this unique piece promises a lifetime of fun and won’t disappoint on any wrist.

This Omega “Soccer Timer” feels perfectly matched with a grey canvas strap with normal padding that tapers from 20mm to 18mm. The orange contrast stitching coordinates with the uniquely colored dial and gives this timepiece an added punch.
