Omega made some wonderful chronographs during the 60s and 70s and this one is no exception. This outstanding chronograph was released in 1968 and Omega produced 10,000 of these compared to the 300,000 movements produced of the Caliber 861, making this rare indeed.
The Omega 145.017 De Ville was always meant to be a compact chronograph, with its clean and restrained dial. The silver dial was the most common, the black was produced in more limited numbers, the blue being the most difficult variant to find, and for us, the most beautiful of them all.
The blue colouring changes at every angle on the wrist with the clean white baton hands providing a strong visibility.
The 35mm case is perfectly proportioned, and has only light wearing marks to the case.
The movement is running well and is in clean condition with strong amplitude showing + 3/4 seconds over 24hrs.
