Up for sale is an Omega Seamaster Chronostop, the Jumbo Diver version with a GMT/Pilot inner bezel. I am selling the watch to fund an Omega Seamaster 300 Watchco.
The watch case measures 41mm wide (without the crowns), 47 mm lug to lug and is in unpolished condition, retaining its beautiful original sunburst finish. The case back retains its original markings that are very visible - despite the shallow etching method that was used by Omega. The dial is in very good condition with some minor tarnishing on the stainless steel markers - see the photos, at https://imgur.com/a/jTD4vka, for more details (excuse the reflections of my down lights on the watch face). The inner GMT/Pilot bezel turns perfectly and is in great condition with only some minor fading of some numerals - namely 21 and 5. The GMT/Pilot variation of this reference 145.008 is quite uncommon and the bezel is original to the watch. The crystal has some scratches but those can be polished out - best of all, the crystal is original to the watch and you can see the Omega logo in the centre.
All in all, everything on the watch is original - save for the vintage Heuer winding crown, which I think is quite 'cute' and adds some character and is why I have not sought to get it replaced. A correct crown can be sourced, on sites like eBay or Ofrei, for around fifty usd.
Service history is unknown but the watch keeps very good time and the movement looks clean. The 60 second chronograph works perfectly.
The watch is located in Sydney, Australia and comes with the leather Fossil strap, which really compliments the watch.
The price is $2300 USD (or the AUD equivalent), inclusive of worldwide, expedited shipping. Bankwire preferred. I am a well established user on eBay - my username is yeoldesingles. You are free to message me on that platform. Payment by Paypal available on a case by case basis.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for viewing
