Dating vintage omega watches
One of the more unusual vintage chronographs from the Omega Watch Company.
The Chronostop was introduced by Omega following the announcement of its status of Official Timer of the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.
Hallmarking is carried out by an organisation independent of the manufacturer of the item.
In addition to the fineness, hallmarks can show where and when an item was hallmarked, and who submitted it.
The watch is fitted with a manual wind Omega calibre 865 movement which is keeping excellent time and functions flawlessly.
We have partnered with the independent review site Trust Pilot to collect our customer reviews. At Parkers we believe that genuine reviews from genuine customers are the best reflection of our service.
Please remember that this is just an approximate guide and can not be used as a 100% accurate outlook as per how old your watch might be.
