NOTES: The name ‘Jedi’ apparently came from the late Chuck Maddox, who was a writer and publisher on the subject of chronographs and the foremost connoisseur of Omegas in the US.

‘’The Omega caliber 1040 that powers this Seamaster 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. Sure, the Zenith El Primero ran at 36,000, but 28,800 has become the most common oscillation rate for most watches in the past four decades, thanks to its balance of precision and service life.’’
