A very cool Omega stopwatch in good condition, working perfectly and can even measure 1/10th seconds. Model reference MG 6306
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this Omega Stopwatch to being made in 1970.
The movement in this watch is branded as an Omega 8001A, but actually it is a badge engineered Lemania 8000. This is no bad thing – it is a Lemania base movement used in the original Speedmaster so these highly respected individual companies have a good history of working together. The case is an unusual metal we can not identify, and while it arrived with us in a case (a Heuer rubber case for a three button stopwatch that we will keep to pair with the right stopwatch) there is a mark on one side. The back has a interesting engraving – either the original engraver misspelled Jo-Anne by just putting Ann, or Mike later met Jo-Anne and the engraving was crudely adjusted. We will never know! The stopwatch runs at 5 beats per second, so in order to be able to measure 1/10th of a second the central hand sweeps round once every 30 seconds – a neat solution to solve the problem.
This Stopwatch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
