    Decided to treat myself.

    Up till now I have been using the economy screwdriver set and tweezers that I bought to first get me started. They have served me well but I got annoyed and frustrated when the tips fell out at the most inconvenient time and tweezers with one side bigger than the other. I’ve not had the chance to use them much except for trying the tweezers, and how much better they feel. So glad I took the plunge.

    Omega triple date

    Hello everyone, I have also loved watches, both quartz and mechanical. I have recently celebrated a birthday milestone and my wife has treated me to a beautiful Omega triple date. Due to the pins in the bracelet refusing to come out for adjustment it was sent to Swatch in Southampton, this took almost eight weeks and was finally returned looking good. The one thing that I feel isn't quite right is that the watch is gaining 15 seconds a day, as the watch was apparently serviced at the same time as he bracelet was adjusted I'm not overly impressed with the time keeping of the watch. This is a 1993 build according to the serial number on the case back and therefore has the 1150 calibre movement, should the watch be keeping better time or should I give it a month for the movement to settle after its service. Thanks for taking the time to read this, Andy

    Omega triple date

    Just realized I forgott to say Welcome Andy! Nucejoe if someone asked me ten years ago how to determine whats fake or not I would have written a couple of rows, these days with for example Sellita making their own versions of a movement they used to do for ETA and the quality Seagull began to produce I would say ... I have no Idea anymore.. The different grades from ETA is easier since they use slightly different components, mainly in the escapement and balance. To make it more obvious for us laymen they usually also decorate the movemnet while the standard and elaborate' always have plain sufaces. Between the Top and chronometer it's the hours they put in to adjust the movement in some more positions, things like that is invisibble for the eye.. And on top of all this we have the different modifications manufacturers gets made or make inhouse.. One just have to have a finger and gut feeling from handling large amounts of watches..

    Omega triple date

    I would say it dependes on which quality the movement is based on. The 1150 was based on the Valjoux 7751 which came in three different grades. 1. Elabore' 2. Top 3. Chronometre Depending on which one it is based on the deviation in time differs. Elaboré Average daily rate: +/- 7 seconds Maximum positional variation: 20 seconds Isochronism between 0 and 24 hours: +/- 15 seconds Top Average daily rate: +/- 4 seconds Maximum positional variation: 15 seconds Isochronism between 0 and 24 hours: +/- 10 seconds Chronometre - adjusted and timed per COSC specification. All these times are also depending on the position of the watch. As a curiousity theese movements based on the 7750 Never came in the Standard version.

    Unitas 6498 movement

    If I would have assembled this one I would not have used clamps at all. The design allows you to use case screws with wide heads and I would have used a couple of high polished ones.

    Am I MAD to buy this?

    As long as the replacement does not play God save the Queen, however Scotland the Brave would be nice. Funny enough, this clock started life before Australia was discovered. Except in Brazil. I will take photos of the repairs on the music setup, I might have to make some bits also as there seems to be a few bits missing, I don't think Google can help me with what they look like. I did not do photos of the movement as there is enough on the forum and Web already about how to repair a movement anyway I ran out of battery.
