A bit of history on the 176007 and its caliber 1040:
(excerpt from Hodinkee’s article here)
The Omega calibre 1040 that powers this Seamaster 176007 is a modified Lemania 1340, and is significant for several reasons. Introduced in 1970, the Lemania 1340 was the first automatic chronograph movement to run at 28,800 bph.
In addition, the other unique feature of the Lemania 1340 was its use of a central minutes chronograph hand. As you can see in the photos, the minutes chrono hand lies under the seconds counter and distinguished by its “airplane” tip and orange color. Therefore making it perfect for quick, easy reading of the elapsed time.
Omega made it their own 1040 calibre by adding a 24-hour indicator inside the running seconds subdial and increasing the jewel count from 17 to 22.
Manufactured during a short period of less than five years, the 176007. Due to its short run, the ST 176001 is not a common watch to find, but a favorite among lovers of vintage Omegas who love its distinctive ‘70s shape, the blue dial and that great movement.
