Omega Synchrobeat

1953

Originally intended to be a 1,000-piece exclusive release for the U.S. market, the Omega Synchrobeat was born from an order by watch dealer Norman Morris in the early 1950s. Unfortunately, lubrication issues with the Cal. 372 forced Omega to halt production and initiate a recall of the 720 shipped watches, of which only 703 were successfully located. Only 17 examples escaped the horrible fate of destruction or becoming a donor of spare parts.

The Chronometer certified Omega Cal. 372 appears to tick every second, much like a quartz movement, but it is undoubtedly a mechanical movement through and through, featuring a dead-beat mechanism, allowing the wearer to take a more precise reading of the second at a glance.
