Very rare and stunning RODANIA version of “Omega Seamaster a.k.a. Anakin Skywalker, Ref. 145.023” funky chronograph watch from 70s. Huge and the highly reflective 44 mm tonneau-shaped tungsten-chrome finished stainless steel case driven by a true proven and reliable Lemania 1873 (Omega 861) manually wound movement.
This is not so evil ‘Anakin Skywalker’ version (‘Darth Vader’ before he joins the dark side of ‘The Force’), but good to mention that there is also another variant of this watch, a.k.a. ‘Darth Vader’ (glossy Jet Black finished tungsten metal). Moreover, there was a Bucherer and Lemania branded versions available as well.
Watch runs great and all functions work as expected.
