A client has sent in his lovely Omega 300 case ref: 166024 – 67 SC It’s in need of a service.
Movement looks to be in decent condition.
Watch is running, but loosing a lot of time.
Here you can see the inside of the autowinder mechanism.
The screw head for the rotor Gib broke, but luckily I managed to wiggle out the screw.
Here you can see the date changing mechanism for the 565.
Here you can see the setting/winding mechanism. You can also see the long thin post from the second hand pinion protruding though the centre wheel.
Here you can see the gear train layout of the 550 series with the bridge removed.
All the parts cleaned and ready to be put back together.
New mainspring in the cleaned barrel.
Here I see that the balance moves freely after fitting the cap jewels.
Gear train back together.
Base movement almost back together.
Base movement back together and ticking. I like the micro regulator you find on these Omega movements.
Watch is performing very well.
Dial and hands goes back on the movement.
Movement back in the case looking good!
Nice looking classic.
