The Watch

.

Omega introduced the Chronostop Ref.145.009 in 1966. The unusual chronograph movement allows the centre seconds hand to be used either as a constant seconds hand or to time events up to one minute in duration. The pusher for the chronograph will start the seconds hand running when pressed for the first time, pressing a second time will automatically zero the seconds hand to the 12 o’clock position. This function can also be used to synchronise the watch to a time signal if the seconds hand is kept in its running position.

.

Considered one of the most pointless Chrono's ever but all part of this guy's charm.  It looks absolutely amazing on the Wrist and is one for those who like a bit of quirkiness.
