A fine and rare example of the Omega Speedsonic F300hz ref. From circa 1973, the Omega Speedsonic F300hz was launched amid the quartz crisis of the 70's. Iin an effort to remain relevant Swiss brands poured millions into R&D for electronic technology. One such result was the introduction of the tuning fork movement.

In 1972 ETA released the 9210 tuning fork movement (regarded by some as the Rolls Royce of tuning fork movements), they would go onto produce just 21,000 examples. Omega were one such customer for the 9210 and like many manufactures they assigned their own reference to the movement - the Omega 1255. The 300hz you can see on the dial relates to the frequency (300Hz) at which the movement vibrates.

Unfortunately as quartz technology continued to fall in price, production of movements such as the 9210 would no longer be economically viable and the movement slowly slipped into the history books. This particular example of the. Is in very good original condition. The case seems to be unpolished.

Crystal is new and scratch free. Movement is clean and fully functional. Comes on original Omega reference 1162 steel bracelet. In summary, this attractive and historically significant Omega Speedsonic F300h is not only an attractive watch but is likely to be a good investment in the years to come as examples in this condition become increasingly hard to find.
