© David K. Edwards. Bulova Accutron wristwatch, from the early 1970's. It uses a 360 hertz (neighborhood of F#) tuning fork as its timekeeping element. It hums.

Yes David those little tuning forks were pretty accurate and far cheaper than a Quartz crystal.

Such tuning forks were produced to use as tone filters in multi tone signalling systems in two way radios used by emergency services and also in press button telephones where numbers 0 - 9 are represented by a different tone in the CCIR or ZVIE scale, where two consecutive numbers were the same a Repeat tone was used. I used forks made by "MuRata" a Japanese company.
