Vintage Omega Seamaster “Reverse Panda” Chronograph 145.005 from 1968


When you think of Omega chronographs the first thing you think of is ofcourse the speedmaster line. But in fact Omega made many different chronographs, like the de ville chronograph line and the beautiful Seamaster chronographs. These Seamasters were made to accompany the Speedmaster line offering a less sporty and more elegant look. With the famous 321 movement inside which was used in many pre-moon speedmasters this watch is truly a stunner!

Made in 1968 this Omega Seamaster chronograph has something extra. It is an extremely rare variant with a “Reverse Panda” dial and orange “Ultra Man” style chronograph hand. This configuration is considered to be one of the rarest Seamaster configuration around and will likely not pop up for sale again in the coming years. I bought this particular watch for my personal collection, but very soon after found my birth year (and day!) Speedy. This Seamaster is not getting the wrist time it deserves and so it’s ready to find its way to a soon-to-be very happy collector. As this watch is from my personal collection, it will be sold privately. Please contact me before placing the order. Moving on with the description:

This dressy 35mm chronograph has pump pushers without crown guards creating a clean and crisp look. The dial houses an applied Omega logo and has a tachymeter scale at the outer rim. Under the hood is the famous 321 movement, a very well-established and sturdy movement liked by many collectors. The condition of this watch is good, with some remarks: the lume is not fully intact on the indices and, during the last service the crown and one pusher were replaced (with correct parts). Overall this piece is lovely for the eye and holds great collector value as these don’t pop up often.

What we love:

  • Gorgeous Reverse Panda dial
  • Collector’s piece

What you should know:

  • Replaced (correct) crown and pusher
  • Opening marks on caseback 
  • Not fully intact lume

OMEGA Seamaster

back to 1948, the birth year of the Seamaster CK 2518. The model, when released, was to be a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the company. What made the Seamaster revolutionary at the time was its use of a rubber gasket for its water resistance. The technology was the same used in submarines at that time and remains in use even today.
