This 1972 vintage OMEGA SEAMASTER AUTOMATIC WINDING CHRONOGRAPH. The caliber 1040 automatic is an uncommon variant of the Speedmaster MK3. The 39mm. gold filled case with signed, steel screw back is in very good condition for its age. The slate gray dial with blue accents, having date aperture, inner tachymetre bezel displays very fine condition. The gold running seconds (and 24 hour indicator), with exotic blue and gold 12 hour chrono register and gold sweep seconds add a refined appeal. Please note: the airplane style chrono hands returns exactly to 12:00-it was not reset in the photo. The caliber 1040 automatic winding movement was amongst the most complicated ever produced by OMEGA…this one, cleaned and overhauled recently and keeping time quite well. This is an uncommon OMEGA complication that will certainly appreciate “over time”.
