FOR SALE IS AN UNBELIEVABLY SHARP OMEGA SEAMASTER F300HZ TUNING FORK CHRONOMETER DIVER FROM 1970 IN STUNNING CONDITION

  • CASE: HANDSOME TONNEAU SHAPED SOLID STEEL CASE IN SUPER CRISP SHAPE MEASURING A LARGE 41mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED SCREW-DOWN CROWN. THIS ONE HAS SOME SERIOUSLY LARGE PRESENCE ON THE WRIST AND WEARS VERY MODERN. CHECK OUT THOSE SHARP CHAMFERS AND THE GORGEOUS FACTORY ORIGINAL BRUSHING ON THE SIDES AND THE CASE TOP. ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. THE BLACK BAKELITE BEZEL HAS A BIDIRECTIONAL 60 CLICK ACTION WHICH IS CRISP AND PRECISE. THERE ARE SOME MINOR SCRATCHES ON THE BAKELITE, BUT OVERALL THE CONDITION ON THIS GUY IS QUITE IMPRESSIVE FOR A 52 YEAR OLD WATCH. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS DIAL IS SLICK AS HELL.  CHECK OUT THAT STUNNING 2-TONE SILVER DIAL WITH NEAT APPLIED STEEL MARKERS. VERY CLEAN LAYOUT.  MY FAVORITE PART OF THIS FACE HAS TO BE THAT APPLIED TRAPEZOIDAL OMEGA LOGO AT 12.  IT LOOKS SUPER SHARP.  . THAT RALLYE STYLE BLACK/STEEL HANDSET IS A HALLMARK OF THESE F3OOHZ OMEGAS FROM THE 70s.  JUST A WELL BALANCED AND VERY MASCULINE DIAL WITH JUST THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF TEXT AND SIMPLE DESIGN LANGUAGE. THIS 70s FUNK CLASSIC IS VIEWED UNDER THE ORIGINAL FLAT MINERAL CRYSTAL WITH SOME VERY MINOR SCRATCHES THAT ARE HARDLY EVEN NOTICEABLE.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS BRUTE RUNS ON THE CUTTING EDGE CHRONOMETER GRADE OMEGA 12 JEWEL CAL.1250 ELECTRONIC TUNING FORK MOVEMENT.  DATE IS QUICKSET.  THIS GILTED BEAUTY IS SQUEAKY CLEAN AND KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.  I JUST LOVE THAT SMOOTH SWEEP AND THAT GENTLE HUM OF THAT TUNING FORK MOVEMENT.  THIS ONE WAS RECENTLY SERVICED BY AN EXPERT WHO DEALS SOLELY WITH THESE TYPE OF ELECTRONIC MOVEMENTS. 

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON THE ORIGINAL NEAR MINT CONDITION STAINLESS STEEL OMEGA SIGNED BRACELET WHICH CAN ACCOMMODATE UP TO A 7 5/8" WRIST.  THIS IS THE EPITOME OF 70s MACHISMO.  IT'S A TREAT TO FIND A VINTAGE OMEGA IN THIS SHAPE.  EVERYTHING IS TIGHT AND IN SHARP SHAPE ON THIS BEAUTY.  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A LARGER GENT'S VINTAGE OMEGA, THIS HITS THE SPOT RIGHT HERE.  WHILE THE PRICE OF THE MECHANICAL OMEGA SEAMASTER DIVERS SUCH AS THE PLOPROF, THE 300, AND THE 120s HAVE GONE THROUGH THE ROOF; THESE ELECTRONIC MODELS OFFER A GOOD VALUE PROPOSITION AND A GREAT INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY. I LOVE THE WAY THIS ONE WEARS. DEFINITELY A FANTASTIC ALL-ROUNDER EVERYDAY VINTAGE WATCH WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF A TRIED AND TRUE TUNING FORK MOVEMENT, WHICH MAKES FOR AN EASY GRAB AND GO EXPERIENCE.
