A fine and rare example of the Omega Speedsonic F300hz reference 188.0002.

Hailing from circa 1973, the Omega Speedsonic F300hz was launched amid the quartz crisis of the '70s. In an effort to remain relevant Swiss brands poured millions into R&D for electronic technology.

One such result was the introduction of the tuning fork movement. In 1972 ETA released the 9210 tuning fork movement (regarded by some as the Rolls Royce of tuning fork movements), they would go onto produce just 21,000 examples. Omega were one such customer for the 9210 and like many manufactures, they assigned their own reference to the movement - the Omega 1250 (date only) and 1255 (chronograph with a day/date). The 300hz you can see on the dial relates to the frequency (300Hz) at which the movement vibrates. 

Unfortunately, as quartz technology continued to fall in price, production of movements such as the 9210 would no longer be economically viable and the movement slowly slipped into the history books. 

This particular example of the Omega Speedsonic F300hz is in excellent condition. The movement has recently received a full service and works well. It appears the nameplate on the movement was replaced with one from a calibre 1250 during a previous service. The case and dial are both in excellent condition as is the reference 1198 bracelet. It also comes with an Omega inner and outer box, although the inner box suffers from significant wear. 

In summary, this attractive and historically significant Omega Speedsonic F300h is not only an attractive watch but is likely to be a good investment in the years to come as examples in this condition become increasingly hard to find.

The Watches

Are all watches authenticated?

All our watches pass through a double authentication process to insure their authenticity. We also provide detailed photos of the watch from all angles to allow you to undertake your own anlysis. Finally as with everything, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly team

What if something goes wrong with the watch

Whilst all our watches are fully serviced before sale, if something does go wrong, we'll repair it for free as part of our 1 year warranty

Do watches come with original box and papers?

It depends on the individual watch. You can see details under "The Basics" heading on this page. For the majority of vintage watches their original box and papers have been lost to time. Whilst they are nice to have, it’s important to note that “box and papers” DO NOT authenticate a watch despite what many in our trade say. It’s also important to realise alot of sellers (including some of the most well known in the UK) put together full sets of box, papers, hang tags etc by buying blank paperwork and boxes in the secondary market. This is a very regrettable, but unfortunately common occurrence in the trade but something we will never do!

How do I know it will fit?

For metal bracelets we provide the size it will currently fit in the description section of this page. If this measurement is too large or too small we are able to assist in either adding or removing links. We also offer this service, post service on a at-cost basis (i.e. we don't add a margin).

Can you change the strap?

Absolutely! If you don't like the current strap, let us know and we'll change it for free! We maintain a broad selection of styles and can also source straps to your specification free of charge.

Can you source something similar?

Absolutely! If its not quite what you’re looking for just get in touch and we can source one with our Free, No Obligation sourcing service. You can contact us on phone, live chat or simply submit the details of what you’re looking for on our “Find a Watch” page.

Payment

What payment options do you offer?

We accept payment by all leading credit and debit cards, ApplePay as well as bank transfer.

Do you offer financing?

Currently we don't offer financing but it’s something we're exploring.

Shipping & Returns

Can you ship an order to arrive on a certain day?

We can certainly try! We can request with our shipment partners for delivery on a certain day but ultimately the exact delivery date is subject to a number of factors outside our control.

How do I return a watch?

Simply let us know you want to send the watch back within the 14 return period and return it to us via Royal Mail Special Delivery. We’ll process your refund the same day we receive the watch back.
