This sale is for a Titus Tuning Fork Watch .   

A lot of collectors out there know why this looks nearly identical to omegas f300Hz divers watches , this is because Titus used Omegas ex stock to make there own versions of this watch . They rebranded the dial and used their own hands . The back cover would originally have had Omegas Seamaster badge but has been machined out and restamped with Titus symbol . These are the poorer cousin but a lot rarer .  

 

High grade watch and cutting edge technology of its time . Based around Bulova's Accutron system using a tuning fork that is vibrated by electromagnets . The vibrations are used as a power source for the watch mechanical parts . The movement is a Mosaba ESA 9162 which is also used by Omega , IWC , Eterna , Tissot , Zenith , Certina , Baume and Rado as well as others . Circa 1969 to 1976 .
