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.
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.
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
Small repairs like the above can easily be done hand held. It's when working of deep dings or large areas (bracelet clasp are surprisingly time consuming) that a motor or a bracket really becomes really a saver. Don't forget to wear cotton gloves and work inside a cardboard box because is a bit of messy work.
