Has an Omega Jaques Mayol 120 m watch incoming . Its a repair or parts watch with an Omega 1337 engine . Don't now if i could service it . Would be nice to see if i could get it going again . Any tips until then . Is their any one out there servicing quartz movement . Preferably Europe

Nice Omega, check this out:

I hope you find what you are looking for for servicing the Omega. Did you check out Mark's video on quartz servicing? Maybe it will help.

 

Cheers,

 

Bob

Nope .Is that thread in here somewhere ? Or is it youtube ?

Thats a bad one.   I have used before supplied by meadows & passmores "tarnish remover" followed by "rust remover"

Mark uses bicarbonate of soda. These products might help I but must say that is a real challenge.

In a pinch a few drops of CocaCola would work too...but then it needs to be cleaned well!

 

Cheers,

PS. Not that the watch looks thirsty thought... :) I couldn't resist!

 

PS It does work on battery rust...

We used to put copper coins into Coca Cola years ago - shone them up beautifully - lord knows what it does to one's stomach (I never drink it).

 

That's a challenging movement you have there, but it's looking better already. Good luck with it!

That cover plate cleaned up remarkably well ... very impressive.

The coil looks in good shape too.  Have you ohmed it out to see if it's a goer?

Is the IC Board is still viable? And is a replacement still available?

Yepp .Going to do the whole movement when i have time to dismount it  . Will post then  . Have a nicer movement on an auction site going . Hope it doesn't get to expensive . But sure will test to clean this up anyway . My electric nohow isn't that good but how do i Ohm it ? Have an ohm meter . The IC board is really a mess . Don't now if it works .

Ohms is an electrical unit of resistance. George Ohm named it after himself ... the sanctimonious scallywag! :P

Anyhoo, what you are trying to find here, is how much resistance has been created by the windings in that coil of wire.  Normally it will either be on spec, give no reading at all (an open circuit), or to low (a short in the wiring).

Each an every coil of wire, whether it be in a quartz watch, or the electric motor in a vibrator, will have a specific Ohm reading: depending on how the factory wound the coil.  Every coil is different, so you have to have the factory spec sheet to know what resistance it should have.

 

As an example: here is the spec sheet for the coil on an ETA 955.412 Movement.

You will have something similar for your caliber.

 

To test the coil, place the probes of the meter on the two copper pads connecting to the wire making up the coil (as shown below), and note the reading.

BE CAREFUL!  That wire is VERY fine and delicate.

Hope this helps mate ... and I wish you well on restoring this little gem :)

More pictures tomorrow . Have put in the keyless work and some other parts . Some of the wheel is in nafta over night . Will go in the UL tomorrow . Atl east i will try to get it to work again . If the electric doesn't work i will see if i could find it sometime in the future .

Don't do this :) . A really hard job getting all the gears in place . But now it's there ! First side finished .Geartrain running smooth . Haven't  measured the coil yet

    • I was wondering what this tool is for?    Some kind of runner?
    • The JLC sealed barrels I've dealt with are sealed, with the lip burnished over like Nevenbekriev says. They can be opened, but you have to push the lip more open to get the lid to seat again correctly and it's still a bit hairy. They aren't as bad as Zodiac (those you can forget about opening much less closing without issue).   The chances of mucking it up are high enough that it's probably safest just to add a little lubricant at the arbor and call it good.
    • I have a few pin pallets,they are challenging to get any half decent reading on a tg, thats part of the allure of them for me  you can see here the trace is not that good, the lines are a little dotted around, though i have had better on a couple of others. You just have to live with what you can get, when you watch how the pallet pin releases the escape teeth you will understand why, it has no finesse. The tolerances make Russian watches look like Rolexes 🤣. The amplitude is a bit of a guess as there is no lift angle for the Oris 291 anywhere, visually the impulse pin is reaching to around 3/4 of a beat possibly a little more, this is due entirely to the mainspring i put in ( likely it will shake itself to pieces if keep fully winding the movement. But generally 220- 240 would be about the average I've managed to get up to now besides this , so no not as high a swiss lever for me anyway, maybe they're not designed for it, they are cheap movements. If they keep to a minute a day thats probably good, though my Smiths Empire after a lot of adjustment over time has reached within a minute of accurate per week a couple of times, precision record has averaged at approx 4 minutes per week over 2 months so 2 minutes either side of accurate time.  Good question oh i wondered that myself , i can only assume its from something else . The 261 and 292 are sweep seconds, i wonder if the cannon pinion is the same from them ?
    • Ok, I'm glad. It then looks like you are in a good place with the client/friend. That's the key. And also my approach with friends/clients.   Yes, I also understand that, too. But if it's not a question of being stingy, but only impatient, I'd maybe urge him/her even more towards the virtue of patience. It would be worth it. But you are right, just wait until you can open it and you'll (hopefully?) find good reasons to recommend the full service at this moment.
