hey guys.

This is off a omega 283. Can someone please tell me whats wrong with it as i cannot see it.

 i can post pics of that if needed.  If i move train wheels by hand they all work through to the escape wheel. If i wind it a little it runs through turning the escape wheel as before.

But if i put this balance on even though the balance is seated properly and if i touch it with a brush it move back and forward it will not work with the train.


If i move the pallet by hand it goes through the esc ape wheel step by step. So i am left with the balance.

Any ideas?

    • Was the pallet secured in place with the pallet bridge when the mainspring unwound suddenly or was the bridge removed or loose?  Since all the mainspring power was suddenly let down, you have to check for broken pivots in the escape wheel as well as in the pallet.  If this is the case you will need a jeweling tool in order to get the lower escape wheel jewel back in place. If the entry pallet jewel is out of place, it can be moved, but you will need to measure the appropriate distance from the escape wheel tooth in both the locking phase and impulse phase. This can be done "by eye" or with a dedicated measuring tool. You will also need to learn how to work Shellac in order to adjust that jewel. 🙂 Your enthusiasm for solving this problem is wonderful!! Even if you buy a new movement (which is my recommendation), keep working on this one until you find the problem. It's the best way to learn in watch repair and watch making.  Regards,  Guido
