Catalogue Note

Omega launched this model, Ref. ST145.019, in 1969. It remains popular today due to its very unusual dial color combination. In addition, soccer fans have always appreciated this model for its so-called 'soccer-timer' function that features an additional 45-minute indication on the 30-minute register. This allows the user to measure, by one and a half rotations of the register, the time in a half of a soccer match.
