Indulge me for a moment,,, as far as watchmaking is concerned the 1970's is sadly most remembered for the so called quartz crisis during which many great Swiss watch makers disappeared as they couldn’t compete with the cheaper quartz watches arriving from the far East ,what many people overlook is that prior to the seventies many great Swiss watchmakers had already been pursuing the development of quartz powered watches ,the famous and highly collectible Beta 21 movement was the result of a group of these companies including Rolex and Omega working together to develop a highly accurate and reliable movement .
During the late sixties Omega was also working on a solo project with development costs rumoured to be around 30,000,000 Swiss Francs, a huge amount of money 50 years ago the sole aim of this project was to produce the world’s most accurate wrist watch and one example of the result of this endeavour sits proudly in the British Museum and happily now I am offering someone the opportunity to purchase a stunning example of this remarkable feat
This example is in all original condition and remains unpolished , The case is solid stainless steel with 14 K gold plaque and bezel, and the integrated stainless bracelet is tight and full size.
The watch keeps great time and is sure to be a talking point whenever its worn .
