OMEGA Seamaster Automatic (1973) ST 176.005

The Rogue Jedi

"TV Case" Omega Seamaster Chronograph with blue accents - housing the Calibre 1040 movement. Produced from 1972 until 1976. Water resistant to 60 meters. A watch which has falsely been named the Seamaster Jedi. This is due to the Antiquorum auction catalogue misallocating the name in 2007.


  • Normally issued on bracelet, the 005 can be found in steel or gold-plated.
  • The original brushed finish had sharp, straight edges that are obvious on well-preserved, unpolished examples.
  • The steel cases should have blue or silver dials; the gold-plated case should have brown or gold dials.
  • Estimates are that there were around 8,500 176.005 STs in steel made, and 5,500 gold-plated 176.005 MDs.
