      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

      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
      thank you

      Cheers mates!!
      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!

    • Dose it run in static positions, crown up, fcae down at 45 degree angle? Could pivot be slipping out of upper  jewel hole.
    • I like it...pure watch.
    • I usually grab the balance cock and then hold the cock and balance in my hand and then flip it over. Btw if this were not a watch repair blog and someone were to read what I just said, the site could be shut down:)

    • Just finished the Level 3 Watch repair course and it was great. Tons of great information and excellent instruction by Mark. Scored well too. Can’t wait for the Level 4 Course just to see it I’m doing it right. Great tips throughout the course as well.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
    • Nice one Andy, but I can't help but wonder how that watch came to be. No branding at all is certainly not the norm. The chapter ring is a nice addition and I feel certain that it's a fairly recent design since it has the date but no day. More and more that complication is missing from new watches. Could you at least tell the country of origin from the movement when you had it open?
