Just Another Omega F300...


Recommended Posts

No denying it...it is just another Omega f300 but not one you see very often. I bought it as a non-runner a few months ago and finally got round to sorting it out.

It is case number 198.0062 and has a massive (for f300's) 22mm lug gap...had to buy a strap especially for it. These f300s, where the latter part of the case number is above approx 0035, are definitely much less common than the lower numbers, and once you get up into the 0060 range, even more so. The numbers do reflect production dates and quartz movements were starting to appear in quantity by 0060 and higher, so the writing was on the wall for these tuning fork movements. I think the last f300 had a case number of 198.0076.

Your watch looks just like my Titus F300.

I assume at some time in the past Omega sold off all remaining stock to Titus who then de-branded them.

The crown of my Titus still has the outline of an Omega symbol where they tried to polish it out.

If you look obliquely across the crystal, you should also see the Omega symbol engraved dead centre on the inner surface of the crystal.
