OMEGA SEAMASTER 120 176.004 BIG BLUE Cal 1040 1973 44MM ACRYLIC AUTO CHRONO DIVEOmega
For auction is a vintage 1972 Omega Seamaster Chronograph 120m aka Big Blue caliber 1040 tropical dial original polish on original wide link bracelet. This is Omega's most massive watch of the mod period essentially; to take nothing away from a Ploprof, a 125, even an Anakin. Those are all big too. But they aren't Big Blue big. Always holding a fascination to watch collectors it has been good and value from its inception. The blue color on the blue acrylic bezel is just so blue and perfect; nothing modern looks quite the same way. Many got a tropical turn to the dial and this is one of those; halfway color change looks really cool.
