I have inherited an Omega Electronic Chronometer,with a second hand. The date space is on the right side. This model does not have a date of the week. It could be an early 1970's model.
Below the 12 o'clock point at the top of the face is the Omega Logo on a red back ground.
Just below the middle of the face appears "f300"
The case is a gold colour with an gold colour expansion band.
The back of the case is stainless steel and the reverese side of the expasion band is also stainless steel.
I am not sure if the gold in this watch is simply gold filled or 14 or 18 karat gold. I would like to wear this watch but the expansion band it too large for me. A jeweller in my city said that he could not make the band shorter. I find that hard to believe. Can you please tell me what model I have, is it a Seamaster or Speedmaster, the type gold in the case and bracelet, and whether or not I can shorter the bracelet to fit me. By the way, the colour of the gold expansion bracelet is brighter than that of the gold colour of the case.
Many thanks for any light you can shed on this.
