The Omega Soccer Timer is one of the coolest purpose built chronographs that came from Omega starting in the 60's which lasted until the early 80's. Each soccer timer reference was either outfitted with a gray or white dial and all featured uniquely stunning black and red chronograph subdials. What makes the soccer timer unique to the other cal. 861 powered omega chronograph of a similar era is the chronograph minute subdial was marked with a 45-minute indicator below the “30” to make it easier to time halves of a soccer match. Otherwise, the various Soccer Timers weren’t much different from the other caliber 861-powered Omega chronographs available at the time of production.

This is a unique and different Omega Chronograph that is sure to stand out when worn on the wrist, especially being a tropical dial. This piece is sure to be a stand out in a growing collection. We love the soccer timer because it offers a unique vibe that we love so much from the era in which it came from.
