I'm just about to start on one of those myself (my very first OMEGA), so I'm very curious to see where you were going... Any chance you'd like to finish that post, please?

Cheers!

USP technical error..

Working on a Omega Cal. 613, have done service, and watch performs well on the time-grapher, but when put dial and hand on, I can see that the second hand is ticking uneven, it sort of jumps 2 and 3 seconds at the time.

Is this an cannon pinion  issue??

Do you have the centre-seconds friction spring set correctly? It should cause enough friction to drop the overall amplitude by around 5-20 degrees. With it set too loose, you will see slack in the meshing between the 3rd wheel and CS pinion.

You mean the spring this is under this bridge?

How can I see or how to adjust right??

This is how it performs in the timegrapher without dial or hands

That looks like very good performance.

Remove the C/S cock and look at where the spring attached. Also check if it is contaminated with oil. You can then very slightly bend the spring (just lift with your tweezers) to create more pressure and therefore more friction to reduce the "slack".

I was air between the spring and the pinion, so after a little fiddling, a got in nice and easily onto the  pinion, and I got this on timegrapher,

I will try with the hand now an see...

Hello! I have an omega 613 that is in need of repair. The local watchmaker says it’s a lost cause—too rusted. I’m okay with that if that’s the case. My questions are: I know you have not seen the watch in question, but if rusted = goner? And, if so, would you say it’s worth it to consider converting to quartz (because I like the watch and it has some sentimental value)? And if possible, how would that happen?

Depends on how badly rusted, pictures would be better. Most stuff is repairable, but what it needs is hard to say. Be a shame to spoil it with a quartz.

Agree. Better to use another 613 movement than a quartz movement.

      I am currently messing about with a Chaika 1601 movement which had a very loose cannon pinion (gears turned but hands not moving). I tried nipping it up but managed to mess it up, so it is of no use now. I have got a new unused cannon pinion but it just slips on and has obviously not been crimped (is this normal?).  
      To fit/crimp it to the centrewheel pinion, do I crimp it in situ (I have a tool that will do this) or do I do it away from the pinion (I do not have a core pin that is small or hard enough to fit, so cannot do it off the movement). The movement is from a ladies watch and the cannon pinion is very small with the bore about 0.3mm.

      I seem to be having a run of loose cannon pinions, especially on small calibre (ladies) movements.  Don't have a tool for tightening so would like advice for suitable tool.  I have seen the Bergeon pliers type but wow are they expensive!  Do not want one that needs jeweling tools etc to use it.  Any suggestions/sources most appreciated.

      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!
