This sale is for a Omega Constellation Electroquartz f8192Hz Watch
A very collectible Omega with a rare quartz movement , in perfect working order and fabulous cosmetic condition .
Circa 1970s watch using the latest electronic technology and cutting edge of its time. This 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 electro magnets 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 .
