Omega 196.00.52 : Seamaster Chrono-Quartz

Omega 196.00.52 description

The Omega Seamaster Chrono-Quartz was released in 1976 to celebrate the Montreal Olympics. Its remarkable design was based on the score boards used in sports timing. Its width of over 51mm and weight of over 150 grams make sure this watch won't go unnoticed!

The caseback of the Chrono-Quartz bears both the Seamaster logo as well as the Olympic crest. It is the only watch to be powered by Omega's in-house caliber 1611 'Albatros' movement, which was one of the first analog/digital hybrid movements. At the time of introduction, its price was over twice that of a Speedmaster Professional.
