A beautiful example of the Omega Speedsonic f300hz reference 188.0002, hailing from 1974 this Speedsonic is truly a rare gem.

The Omega Speedsonic 188.0002 was launched amid the quartz crisis of the 70's. In effort to remain relevant Omega joined many other Swiss brands by pouring millions into R&D for electronic technology. 

As a result of this the tuning fork movement was introduced. In 1972 ETA released the 9210 tuning fork movement (regarded by some as the Rolls Royce of tuning fork movements). Omega was one of many customers that would go on to produce just 21,000 examples of the 9210. Like many manufacturers Omega assigned their own reference to the movement. The 1250 (date only) and 1255 (chronograph with a day/date). Unfortunately, the 9210 movement slowly fell into the history books as the price of the quartz technology continued to fall throughout this time period which led to the tuning fork movement no longer being economically viable.

The Omega Speedsonic has a 41mm case with a stunning sunburst effect to the bezel. The dial contains a day and date calendar, 30 minute register, hour register, and continuous small seconds register. It also has a tachymetre scale around the face. The 300hz you can see on the dial relates to the frequency (300Hz) at which the movement vibrates. This example also comes with the original bracelet, with the Omega brand logo, still in fantastic condition.

In summary, the historically significant Omega Speedsonic 188.0002 is not only an attractive addition to any collection but also an excellent investment piece for any collector looking to add distinctive, individual timepieces to their multitude of watches.

Condition Report

Presented in excellent vintage condition. The dial remains in exceptionally good order. The hands, possibly later replacements, are also in excellent shape. The case is probably the cleanest example we've seen, maintaining its original sunburst effect and bevel to the case edges with only light scratching present. The bracelet, which will fit wrists upto 18cm remains in good shape with a couple of marks and some stretching but very much still usable. Finally, the movement has received a fresh service.
