ORIGINAL 1970'S RETRO WATCH  

OMEGA CONSTELLATION ELECTROQUARTZ F8192 Hz REF 16f8

A rare treat for all you omega lovers - classic 1970s watch using the latest electronic technology and the cutting edge of its time. This is Omega is one of only two different models that they made with the seriously rare Beta 21 movement . This was also fitted to no less than IWC , Longines Patek Philippe and Rolex so it is in the best of company . The movement makes a low humming noise much like Bulovas Accutron and uses similar technology to the tuning fork module . Vibrations are caused by small electromagnets and the vibrations are used as the power source for the watches mechanical movement. It was extremely accurate and the beta 21 set a new record in 1969 with deviation of 0.004 seconds per day .

Swiss made , fantastic build quality, case and bracelet hewed out of solid stainless , a large and heavy watch . This model is a fine example and in great used condition . Time is shown on a sunken dial in black with chrome hour batons and a date window unusually at 6. This is a very very rare watch due to the black dial which you are unlikely to see again , they were nearly all silver dials . There is a tiny touch up mark near the centre that I have shown in the photos . If it was not for that the watch would be for sale at a lot higher price . The glass crystal is totally scratch free . Case and bracelet are free from any heavy dings or deep scratches and nothing really worth a mention . Please see pictures for full condition

It is running perfectly and holding time ( hear the classic and tell tale humming when you put it to your ear ) . Fits up to a 7.5" wrist and large dimensions all round on this serious man's retro watch. This watch is a real investment and such a rare piece that you are unlikely to find one anywhere else . .

Watch dimensions
Top case to bottom 44mm , side to side ( without crown ) 37mm , thickness ( crystal to back cover ) 11.5mm
