About this watch

The Omega F300 is one of Omega most important watches of the 1970’s, it was the first electronic chronometer watch produced in the world and a remarkable leap forward in watch making technology. Not to be confused with a quartz watch this watch is a mechanical watch but instead of having a balance wheel has a tuning fork mechanism which is powered by a battery.

The F300 was Omegas flagship watch of the day and as such has all of the technology and build quality in a watch that cost the equivalent of 6 months’ wages at the time. It truly is a work of art and as well made if not better than virtually all other watches of the time. When new this watch was virtually double the price of the now famous Ploprof and considerably more expensive than the equivalent Rolex submariner.

This example is something really special, not only is it one of Omegas iconic divers’ watches of the 1970’s and made to the highest professional divers standards but it is also new old stock, even retaining the red wax seal on the case back. The watch has been fully overhauled by an F300 specialist and comes with full balance of our Watch Collector warranty. The 41 mm stainless steel case is flawless as is the rest of the watch and it is presented with original Omega corfam and all of the boxes and papers.

Omega divers’ watches are famed across the world for being amongst the best there is and this one is no exception, it is depth rated to 120 M, it has one of the most important watch movements of the 20thc entury inside it and it is a once in a life time opportunity to buy a new old stock example, what more can we say.

A great piece of watch making history and a wonderful investment opportunity to buy a flawless example of this iconic watch.
