The Omega Seamaster SMF300 was introduced in the early 1970’s as a semiprofessional divers watch and was amongst Omegas flagship range of watches. When news these watches were £144.50 compared to the Moonwatch at £124.50, the build quality was reflected in the price.
What makes the watches special is their ‘tuning fork’ movement, known as the Omegas mosaba movement a mechanical movement which ran on a battery and was controlled by tuning forks which vibrated at a frequency of 300Hz
The movement was made under licence by Bulova, the chronograph version then adapted with basically and extra 'layer' for the chronograph operation. The movement in this watch was known as the Mosaba meaning 'montre sans balancier' translates for 'watch with no balance'
These are becoming increasingly rare and desirable watches, they are fast appreciating in value and finding good examples is harder and harder.The stainless Steel case measures 41.3 mm which makes it a perfect modern size yet maintaining that vintage appeal.
