It’s not as popular as earlier Omega movements, but I like the 1030. This customer watch is in very good original condition underneath the damaged crystal and only needs a routine service.
Performance is not too bad, but a service is in order as the movement is dry.
The melted case back tells me it’s a long time since this case back was last opened. The movement is also in excellent condition.
Case ref 136.0102
I remove the hands and dial.
Dial and date cover removed and everything looks pretty good.
There is the odd piece of dirt here and there, but overall pretty good.
Here you can see the gear train layout and the hacking lever.
Winding/setting and quick set mechanism is nice when in good condition but not so much when rusted and worn!
All the parts cleaned and ready to be put back together.
New mainspring in the barrel.
I start putting the movement back together. Here you can see the tension spring for the central second pinion.
Gear train coming back in place.
Winding/setting/quickset and date mechanism back in place.
Dial and hands back on the movement. Looks like the day it left the factory.
Very nice movement when in good condition like this!
Also a great performer!
Great looking classic!
