Horological Milestones: Electronic Watches, pt 7/8

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

A horological milestone each day:

1973 Omega once again proved their prime position in horology and innovation by presenting their MegaQuartz movement: A quartz is vibrating at a rate of 2.4MHz -- each second! -- and makes it the most precise wrist watch back then and until today. A milestone!

The watch shown is a cal1510 -- one of 1'000 made.
