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?
Good evening everyone. I am new to this forum and i can see we have some outstanding experts on the site.
brand new to watch repair and looking to get some advice. I purchased an Omega seamaster quarts 1342 watch (not currently working and not tested) as it was a bargain and understand that 329 is the equivalent of the original mercury battery used when the watch was manufactured?
I am hoping the battery change will mean it is functional but in the event it does not work, how easy/costly is it to repair. (I’ve heard parts can turn this bargain into a money pit)
would anyone in this community willing to have a go at fixing it after i try battery change?
paid service of course.
any help advice would be much appreciated
Got this into my bench, but I wonder how ta get the movment out?
I have taken of the glass, removed the stem, but when I trie to move the ring with grooves(red circles) the movment follows anti clock wice.
Is it so simple that I have to hold the movment tight while Im doing it?
Hi folks , I’m working on the Omega t17 that have a really strange problem, if i wind it to full power it seems to run like crazy with mad reading , but if i wind it ..say 5-7 time it keep the rate better , also the amplitude is almost the same on 5-7 turn and full turn at 290-320
i attaches the photo of the read
I also noted that the beat rate is expanding and close on the reading too, Balance swings is not even ?
thanks for the read and answer!
From Maryland USA, I began tinkering with pocket watch repair a few years ago and then...drones got in the way. The watch 'itch' has returned and I've got to scratch it with a project I have in mind. I'm glad I found this forum cause I've got a few questions.... See ya' soon!
you can buy a a parts case and pull the stem and sleeve from that one. just make sure the size and manufacturer are the same. if you plan on making a stem you will have to machine so its works with a sleeve if not the stem will just fall out. there are plenty of parts watches and cases on ebay. finding a stem and sleeve on their own is dam near impossible
Thanks- I'm sure one will show up in time. ;o)
Yes, the movements are in-house column wheel chronographs; you might know I'm trying to work my way through all of the manual chronographs of the golden age! They're quite nice though- they do look better in person but feel better than any other watch I've had thus far. Movado made some keepers back in the day.
