The Omega F300 series of watches was a remarkable turning point in watch making, combining a mechanical movement which ran via a tuning fork mechanism and a battery as opposed to a traditional balance.
The watches where Omegas flagship pieces when introduced and were considerably more expensive than their mechanical brothers and the build quality of the pieces reflected the higher price tag when new ,however these terrific pieces are currently a bit of a sleeper with many collectors not realizing just how good they are ,this situation is starting to change and once it gathers momentum I can see these great watches becoming the star they should be with prices reflecting that .
This example is in stunning all round condition , the 36 mm solid 9ct gold case is made by Shackman’s, a British gold smith who produced a huge range of Gold cases for Omega right through the 1960’s and 1970’s (due to gold import restrictions in the UK). Shackman's were renowned worldwide for producing cases of the highest quality.
The serial number dates this stunning piece to 1973
