1969 OMEGA Seamaster Soccer Timer (Ref. 145.016) Cal. 861
The Omega Soccer Timer is one of the coolest purpose-built chronographs that came from Omega. Produced from the 1960s to the 1980s, each soccer timer reference was either outfitted with a gray or white dial and all featured the stunning black and red chronograph sub-dials. What distinguishes the soccer timer from other cal. 861 powered Omega chronograph's of the era is the chronograph minute sub-dial was marked with a 45-minute indicator below the “30.” This feature was included 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. We love the soccer timer because it offers a unique vibe that we love so much from the era of which it's from. Casual to formal this pice would make a unique example sure to start a couple of conversations.
