Omega Seamaster 300M Chronograph Hands For Cal 1164

Question

I've just refurbished a rusty 1164 movement following marks video of the Valjoux 7750. It running like a dream. I have a new seamaster 300m dial for it but now need some genuine omega hands.

Anybody know the ref numbers for silver skeleton hands to fit the 1164 please.

Also while I'm on the subject does anyone know a site that references omega cases and compatible movements that fit?

Thanks all !!

I usually use Cousins for my Omega parts - you can search by movement for hands and dials etc.. you search by case number for crowns, bezels etc.

 

This may change next year when the Swatch Group drops the hammer.

That's the double bind that Cousins gets you in. If you want a new case for a movement, then it's mandatory that you know the case number. But, if you don't know the number, how can you order a case - or hands - or anything else?

 

I would have thought that calibre was more important than case.

Willfly that's my problem.. I use cousins all the time but sometimes there referencing methods are floored. I have found some hands which look correct at cousins but there is no information of the pinion sizes,lengths or calibre. Product code: x28178, omega part number: 065PZ3988.

I always use the Omega Vintage Watch database. You can search using calibre or case number.

I punched in 1164 and it came up with a list

This is the 300

With regards to Mark,s comment "Swatch Group drops the hammer". In this months (November)  bhi mag there is an article on the 33rd Hong kong watch & clock fair. In the article it states that Asian industry heads discussed issues related to the industry. The principal question at the seminar was the impact of the Swiss monopolistic policies of restricted parts supply. It reported there are" legislative moves afoot in France & Germany that may well have some impact on these restrictive practices"

Just wondering if anyone has any updates on this or is it just a false hope.

Fantastic job, its a shame you may not be able to repeat this in a couple of years time if those idiots at Smersh Spectre err Swatch have their way, mind you, I expect there will be a good supply of pattern parts coming out of the Orient by then.

Speaking about the Orient, I wonder if the Japanese will take advantage of this market issue and try to supply parts too....Orient is a well known brand of mechanical/automatic in house movements, just like Seiko that might be interested!

I would guess that China will lead the charge.

Thanks for the kind words.

I chose this movement carefully for my first chronograph restoration.

As its base calibre is a valjoux 7750 I knew I could get parts cheaply and easily. I cant see omega clamping down on this one. Also hopefully having a good resale value as its a prestigious brand. You don't see many 1164 movements for sale.

Apologies if this is a rude question, but I am very curious...

What did this transformation cost, from the rusted Omega to the parts? i have been amazed at some of the watch transformations I've seen on this website and Mark's videos, but I have no idea what things cost.

Hi chrisbuxton27, 

Thought this forum is from 3 years ago, i am having an issue with my 1164 movement, it stopped working, i would like to know how did you refurbish the movement, it will be a great help if you can share information/document/videos. this is my first time working on a automatic watch, i know it takes a lot of patience and skill, please help me .Thanks in Advance

      Got a ladies Omega De Ville in an auction lot today. My limit for repairs to this point has been installing batteries. The watch runs but runs several hours fast. 
      I know there are a few reasons it could be running fast. I don't have a degausser but suspect it could be magnetized. 
      What are some other things I should consider or questions I should ask if I take it in for repair?
      Also, do you know if there was originally a plastic retaining ring to secure the movement in the case? There was none when I opened the back.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello!
      Not sure if this is the right place for my question since I do not intend to do the repair myself. However I am wondering if anyone knows an approximate price of a tachymeter for the Omega 3520.50 day-date (tripple date).
      If anyone has any idea what a insert and the "repair" would cost at a watch shop, please let me know.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello. 
      I am about to work on a Omega ladies automatic watch.
      I found out that the axis of the rotor is out of place and shakes up and down.
      What could be done in this situation?
      Thanks!

    • Given the relatively small size of the mainsprings, and the relative complexity of the associated gearing, and the large balance,  I suspect that the most likely explanation is that they were looking for improved accuracy rather than run time. As you say it looks more like their aim was to reduce isochronism errors. Your freshly cleaned version seems to suggest that this might have been a successful engineering endevour. Compare with for example the double barrel Seiko spring drive. https://www.grand-seiko.com/us-en/special/sd20th_elegance/ "This same elite team of watchmakers now presents Caliber 9R02, a new movement that has two mainsprings set in parallel within a single barrel and uses the unique Torque Return System* to deliver a power reserve of 84 hours." In that particular caliber the setup of the two springs is some what different. I suspect the increased jewel count in the Seiko might be put to a  somewhat more productive use too.     
    • Pivot must be out of jewel hole in the first picture. Let us see a top view of the coil with pivot in jewel hole. Looks repairable specially if the collet is removable.  Next you may need to detatch the balance complete from the cock. Lets see the coil then. As for the broken screw, check if any of it sticks out the other end, else you will need some alum.    
    • I thought pretty much the same to start with but the relatively small increase in power reserve (up to 47 hrs according to Ranfft) didn't seem to justify the increase in complexity of design and corresponding increase in manufacturing costs so I did a bit of thinking around the subject. To be fair the conclusion I came to was in part speculation on my part, but it was also alluded to in a number of the articles that I read at the time, and it does make sense. Another aspect to consider though is that using two small barrels instead of one larger barrel provides a different set of options regarding how you fit all of the bits into the limited real estate of the base plate, and this may also have been a consideration during the design process.
    • Absolutely, the hairspring is the most delicate thing in the watch- when it comes to manipulation.   It's unlikely that the hairspring was like that before you removed the balance cock. It simply wouldn't have run. It can't get like that from a drop or even being thrown from a rooftop.   As I understand it, the Chinese movements often leave the factory unlubricated and even with manufacturing debris present. This was probably the cause of stopping.
    • Am I understanding that it is possible to deform the hairspring like this without breaking the pivots of the balance wheel?
