TV-Shaped 1970 Constellation f300Hz Tuning Fork Chronometer in Serva Case
Omega Constellation f300Hz Electronic Chronometer, 18K, Tuning Fork, Full Set
- Time (Hour, Minute, Central Second)
We love the f300Hz tuning fork movement: it is precise, even after 50 years, it has a sweep second, it is a brilliant idea that bridges mechanics and electronics and that sparked the development of electronic watches and it hums.
The special thing about this watch: it is solid 18K yellow gold, yes. But even more interesting it was made in 1970 and this makes it one of the first Omega f300Hz ever made -- historical.
Furthermore, this more than 50 years ago-made Omega in in perfect condition: The movement is clean and working perfect and was serviced right now so it will hum another five decades. The case, glass and dial is in similar beautiful and well preserved condition, even after 50 years. By the way, the case was made by the Serva SA in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
A beautiful watch with a beautiful and interesting movement and a rare one especially well preserved and in 18K solid gold, with manual paper and its box.
