The quartz watch movement transformed the industry however before this was to happen, American watch manufacturer, Bulova introduced technology that could harness accurately the constant vibrations of a tuning fork! Their technology was licenced to Omega and here we have an excellent example of their F300Hz. It's battery-driven and when it's running the tuning forks can be heard humming - hence the nickname "hummer". A watch case design distinctly of the 1970s era, this is a particularly good example in excellent condition. Hardly a mark on the dial, even the dots of lume at the top of the hour batons are intact. Each gold coloured baton is topped with fine black lines. Matching gold coloured hands and a stepless sweeping second hand. Day and date at 3, adjustment of which is through the original Omega crown. Heavy gold filled case and stainless steel back both in very good condition. Inside is the Omega calibre 1260 movement. Comes complete with a non-omega strap and buckle. The watch works as it should. Superb example of an evolving technology.
