|Jedi master Belth Allusis|
But let's talk about this reference 145.024 and that "Jedi" story. Featuring the hand-wind calibre 861, the "jedi" received its nickname as a result of the late Chuck Maddox's passion for the star wars movies and his naming the black-cased Omega Seamaster ref. 145.0023 the "Dart Vader". While it is not known if Chuck continued with this theme and invented the terms "Jedi" and "Anakin Skywalker" for the other calibre 861 Seamasters, what is known is that he embraced and used the terms at least as a very early adaptor. Confusion about the "jedi"-name arose in 2007 when those who compiled the Omegamania catalogue reffered to the 176.005 as the so-called "Jedi". Consequently some dealers saw money in this mistake, especially since the 176.005 is much more easy to find. But let there be no mistake, the reference 145.024 is the true "Jedi".
