    Hi,

    I am selling this "true" Omega Seamaster "Jedi" ref. 145.024.

    "Featuring the hand-wind calibre 861, the "Jedi" received its nickname as a result of the late Chuck Maddox's passion for the star wars movies and his naming the black-cased Omega Seamaster ref. 145.0023 the "Dart Vader". While it is not known if Chuck continued with this theme and invented the terms "Jedi" and "Anakin Skywalker" for the other calibre 861 Seamasters, what is known is that he embraced and used the terms at least as a very early adaptor. Confusion about the "jedi"-name arose in 2007 when those who compiled the Omegamania catalogue reffered to the 176.005 as the so-called "Jedi". But let there be no mistake, the reference 145.024 is the true “Jedi"."

    ( extract from: http://omega-constellation-collecto.../real-omega-seamaster-145025-jedi-please.html )

    The watch is in a completely untouched/never messed with condition.
    All parts are 100% original.
    Case still has the original sunburst graining with several very minor scratches for normal use.
    Seahorse and "Seamaster" are still very visible on the case-back.

    Dial and hands have their original lume, so never been relumed.
    Minute and hour hand still have their very bright orange color.

    Mechanically 100%, keeping fantastic time and with a great power reserve.
    Chrono functions also perfect; winding and setting time goes very smooth.

    Model: Omega Seamaster ref. 145.024
    Movement: Hand-wind calibre 861


    Price: 1750 euros ( insured shipping and new Bulangandsons leather strap included )
    optional: NSA signed braclet: +250 euros
    ( I give a full refund in case of a problem or if the watch should not be as described )

    Kind regards,
    Bernard De Vos
