Rare Omega f300 Electronic Chronometer Watch Ref. 196001 Circa. 1970

This beautiful Omega has very precise “tuning fork” movement – cal.1250 developed from ESA 9162.

The ESA 9162 movement is often considered the “Rolls Royce” of tuning fork movements.
It was designed by Max Hetzel, who had previously worked for Bulova and was also responsible for the Accutron 214.
The model name f300 represents the frequency of the tuning fork – 300 Hz
This particular example is notable for an extremely crisp stainless steel case and stunning deep blue dial showing vertical satin finishing pattern.

Case diameter: 36mm 

Crown: Original signed steel crown

Movement:

  • Precise tuning-fork chronometer-grade movement with sweep seconds and date
  • Cal. 1250 signed “Omega”.
  • Rose-gold plated, 12 jewels, 300Hz.
Watch is in good working and in good cosmetic condition with some scratches on the back case
