Omega Electronic Seamaster Chronometer 300Hz
(Colwyn Bay, N. Wales)
I aquirered this Omega Electronic Seamaster Chronometer 300Hz from my father's sock draw about a decade ago, where it had been sitting for some time. He said that he bought the watch in the early 1970's from an authorised omega dealer in Colwyn Bay, North Wales.
The watch was already well worn by the time I took charge of it, I sent it to Omega for a service which cost a few hundred pounds. However, I cannot now remember what was done to it.
Since then, a bracelet pin sheared of in the shoulder and it then spent the next 5 years in my sock draw. I also bought myself a new Planet Ocean to replace.
As you can see from the photo's, the watch is extremely well worn. I did read about the bezel being quite rare, due to being 1 - 12 and not the standard 0 - 60, and so thought I would send you the details to ascertain whether it would be worthwhile restoring, how much that might cost and how much the watch may be worth.
