I couldn't resist this one

I've been really getting into vintage Omega lately. The Omega sport watches from the 60s/70s are so cool and the ability to get an Extract from the Archives confirming date of production and where the watch was delivered is a huge plus.

This Seamaster 176.007 Chronograph totally blew me away. Blue dial, tropic totalizer subdial, orange "airplane" hand minute counter, 24 hr day night indicator. And a quick date. Plus, it has the 1040 Lemania movement and it Omega's first automatic Chronograph. It's just freakin' awesome.

Why aren't more people collecting these?

I'm haunted by this watch ...

Had one for few hours and the seller had a "seller remorse". Saw one few weeks back but the dial was corroded. One day, it will sow up. Cheers, Nilo

I hope you find one again!

And versatile too

Blue dial against the sub dial that's gone tropic really pops. ...
