Referred to as the ‘Jedi’, wrongly to be correct, as this nickname was in fact given to another model initially but then caught up to this one and it stuck.
The 176.005 is an amazing example of 70’s design with it`s TV shaped case that was used during that period by some brands although never more then a few models. It measures 42mm and is made of stainless steel with a fantastic sunray finishing contrasting with polished surfaces.
It's powered by an Omega Automatic movement 1040 which is actually a variation of the Lemania 1340. It was actually the first Seamaster to feature this movement.
The dial is a beautiful brushed silver, with striking light blue accents on the sub seconds, 12 hour counter and central minute counter and is just amazingly beautiful and original. Not your most common configuration for sure.
This watch was found in virtually NOS condition! Only a small hairline scratch on the left side that is barely visible, otherwise this watch is in as new condition! One of those one in a lifetime finds. The dial and hands are just absolutely perfect. Probably the best condition Jedi for sale anywhere!
Comes on a generic unbranded bracelet but that in my opinion fits this watch perfectly, in width as in looks.
