Omega 1045 / Lemania 5100 Part

Question

I recently acquired an Omega Speedmaster automatic from the 1970's that has the Omega 1045 / Lemania 5100 movement inside.  Long story short- the previous owner tried to service it and made a mess instead.  I've managed to source all the parts I think I need except one for the automatic works- the Stop Spring (part no. 1414).  This looks like a part I may be able to fabricate but if the original is available I would prefer that.  Unfortunately I've come up empty with my usual suppliers.   Cousins is the one one who may have it, but it's Restricted which I suppose means you need to be an Omega authorized technician (which I naturally am not) to purchase.

If anyone has a lead to follow I would be most grateful for your assistance.  This piece is a proper mess right now but I think I'm close to bringing it back from the dead.

Thanks Stuart- I can't imagine why I didn't think to check Watchguy's listing.  I've sent an inquiry to him today.

You’re most welcome! I enjoy the challenge. There’s one here too

One day I will write a list of how to find watch parts!!

Okay cannot help you .... But just wanted to wish you luck and success for your project. I hope one day I can get my hands on one of those to work on myself. If you get it done I would like to see the results.

Hello @RyMoeller,

I looked up the part using Bestfit MATSYS and, if you come across any of them, these are the only cross references I found that use that spring: Rodania (Lemania 5012) and Tissot 2910.  I just checked Borel, but A/8767 is out of stock.

Thanks J- that's very helpful.  As @rogart63 pointed out- I just discovered that ETA is producing a movement that's based on the 5100 again so I'll try that avenue as well.

I must say, it's a simple spring and a very "common" shape. You can easily fit a similar spring from many other scrap movements (or springs assortment) to that recess in the plate.

Yes and no, it has a sort of raised portion at the business end, that sort of does the business . It's also surprisingly light in force for its size.

      I wish I had more projects to report on but things have really bogged down lately as I continue to bite of more than I can chew.  I'm in the middle of three long term projects (the Favre Leuba Bivouac going on year three) and am running short of workbench space.  I'm in the middle of changing out the engine in my wife's Mini Cooper too (that's another story but if you own a Mini- be sure and replace the timing chain guides!) and that has really eaten into my "fun time".
      I thought I'd bring this one to the board for comments before I'm underwater- it's an old Gallet from the 60's.  Do you think it can be salvaged?

      We clearly have some water damaged however, the seconds hand will move if the crown is given a little pressure. 

      Water entered in through the chronograph buttons and the pendant tube.  I haven't tried depressing the buttons- I think that would just lead to bits snapping and rust moving about.
      I'll need a new stem for sure...

      The dial actually looks quite good.


      I wonder what it looks like underneath though...

      It's not terrible, but it's not great either.  Most of the rust damage is concentrated in the keyless works.

      There's a bit of damage to the hour recording mechanism...

      That's as far as I've gotten thus far.  The screw for the Operating Lever is rusted tight and is now being treated with a bit of penetrating oil.  Once removed I can pull the second pusher button out and remove the movement from the case.  I'll know the full extent of the damage once it's in a pile of bits and pieces.
      This is an Excelsior Park EP40-68 movement.  I've wanted to work on one of these for quite a while but couldn't afford a proper working piece. Excelsior Park parts are difficult to source though so I may not be able to bring this one back to life.

      Cheers mates!!
      Had to get new winding stem to an Omega cal. 342 , beacuse not original crown.
      Got an replacement from Ronda, but does not fit.
      Tried to fit the stem yesterday, but Im not able to get in in right in the movment.   The original just go right in every time, but the new Ronda stem will not go properly in.   Are there anyone that have some ide why this not fit?   Can the notch in the stem where I have put red arrow have somthing todo with this??   Its slightly smaller on the Ronda stem...  se photo

      Hello all
      i wonder if anyone could offer some advice. I have an Omega seamaster 1345 quartz day date. Working well. However it seems the date is stuck (as shown in pictures) i know the push button at the 4 o clock position is meant to filter through the date? However when pushed in nothing seems to happen. As a result of this the watch works fine but only up untill 11pm it doesnt turn over to midnight and therefor change the day or date. Minute hand works perfectly but it seems i have to change the hour position every morning.
      when i turn the crown, hour hand moves fune and after the 12 o clock position changes the day, but date does not moth along with it.
      anyone know how i can resolve this safely without removing too many parts of the movement? 
      Many thanks

    • Welcome to the forum.
    • Your original description reminded me of a recent problem I had with a different movement.  I switched screws.......The head on the screw holding the pallet cock turned out to look the same, but had a minutely thicker head.  This caught the balance and stopped it.  I felt really silly but it was a very rewarding fix!
    • If you didn't clean the balance jewels introducing fresh oil could dislodge the old gummed up oil and make things worse. I'm afraid you you wont make much progress without cleaning the balance jewels. Assuming you have checked that all jewels are clean and balance pivots are not bent bu the problem still persists,... I would check the endshake of the balance. A watch this old may have had the balance staff replaced and the replacement may not have been an exact fit. On most watches you can adjust the endshake a bit by pushing the jewel housing in the mainplate up or down a bit (using a staking set). Note that this may change the interface between roller jewel and pallet fork so this needs to be considered. On larger mens watches you can sometimes get a screwdriver between the hairspring coils to remove the jewels but on these smaller ladies watches its not so easy. Good luck Anilv
    • Hello all, Imnew to the group, been collecting for only a short time. saw Marks youtube vids, and gave a crack at the basic course. I've retired from the open heart team and very used to working with loops on mm objects. This subject of watchmaking has always interested me, but family and work always to precedence.
    • I have a Solution - Clear nail polish Find an inconspicuous spot then under magnification put a small drop on the tip of a pin and try to mix it into the plastic. If it polish changes colour you have your glue if not, let it set to see how well it adheres anyway. If above fails try another brand - nail polish is just a solution designed to dissolve shiny plastics an their additives.
