Mens 1972 Omega Seamaster Chromometer Electronic F300Hz Daydate Watch – Working

Wow just wow!

This was Omegas first electronic chronometer. Known as the sand pile or cone due to its unusual shape, this watch is also distinctive in that it was originally water-resistand to 60-metres (but dont wear it in the shower now!) and it housed the iconic Omega 1260 “hummer” calibre. Called that because it hums and does so because it has a vibrating tuning fork inside powered by a battery. It vibrates at 300 (hence f300 Hz on the dial) times per second and when manufactured was accurate to 60 seconds per month – and it still is! Bullet-proof engineering, this is a heavy watch at 108gms.

The case back is signed Omega and has the Omega sea monster. Omega signed crown for adjusting the time, day and date. The silver dial Great with no marks. Silver baton hands partly finished in deep black. Red sweep seconds hand. Fully functional day and date at 3. Signed Seamaster Chronometer and below is the applied Omega script and signed Electronic f300Hz. At 12 is the applied Omega logo set in red, so identifying it as an f300.

Set on it original strap which is in good condition with a couple of marks and dings.

The pictures provided form part of the description and should be checked thoroughly. I do not service the watches, only refurbish unless specified in title/description. I am happy to discuss work done on watches and every effort is taken to keep the watch completely original. If I have changed something I will detail it in the listing.

Timekeeping

In working/serviced condition watches are guaranteed by -5/+5 minutes and is checked manually, item in working condition and keeps time to the best of my knowledge and runs for at least 12+ hours, give or take -5/+5 minutes over 24 hours from a full wind, unless specified in the description. With any vintage watch not serviced, there could be a few minutes lost or gained over 24 hours. Item has been wound and left stationary running over night and face up, to make sure the watch is functional. We do not check power reserves/amplitude nor do we put them on a timegrapher, if it works for 12+ hours, it will be sold as working. With any vintage watch we recommend a service, this can be arranged at a cost by us or we can provide recommendations, please contact us if you would like to arrange this before purchasing. The best way to describe a vintage watch is like an old car, regular servicing, oil and care will keep your watch healthy and improve longevity.
