Omega Seamaster Chrono Pusher


Recommended Posts

A friend has given me his Omega Seamaster Chrono case no 176.007 cal 1040 to have a look at .

One of the crono buttons has broken off and will need replacing as the button is missing.

I have looked at Marks video on replacing the pusher in the Omega chronostop thread which looks the same although Mark did a Breitling.

My question is I see Cousins do a Horotec tool for chrono pushers and pendant tubes , does anyone know if there is a cheaper alternative and also whether they would do the job on the Seamaster and if they would do Rolex pendant tubes (looking at doing my Oyster date maybe)?

Bit reluctant to shell out £144 plus vat etc if its no good.

Mark mentions in the vid about using pliers but as it's not my watch I'd rather use the right tool , if it was mine i'd probably have a go.

Thanks Andy

I don't personally like the Horotec set as the ends are quite brittle and can break easily.

 

These are the ones I use:

Still quite pricey, but I reckon they are better quality.

 

I can't be certain but it may be the blue one you need, but please double check the size you need before you order one in case I am wrong.

Update on this i've managed to purchase it off the owner , when he found out the price of the parts , so have ordered the bits for myself and the tool Mark recommended ,It's been running and working a treat on the watch winder results are good on the timegrapher so hopefully with a new pusher crystal and caseback seal i will have got myself a keeper :-)

The case has been knocked about a bit but it does date to 1972

Hey Andyclient, I have a Omega Chronostop Genéve with the same missing pusher button. What parts did you order for that - specifically, what pusher button? Thanks!

I got it from Cousins mine was ref:086st0005 which is the complete pusher assembly you will need to put in your case number to be sure though as they might not be the same.

Right before i posted i thought i would check as i have a chrono stop and they are different but Cousins still stock them.

My chronostop case is ref no145.009 which has a smaller pusher than the seamaster , Cousins part no 086ST0002 £42.75 plus vat plus p&p

First you need to find out which reference the watch has ? That stands on the inside of the caseback . It looks to be the same as the OP ?

Hi , if the case no is the same as mine a 176.007 then the pushers are 086st0005 and the crown is 43238st but i would check the case no first

cheers Andy

    • Hi Saltire, It could be that the screw holding the lever in place isn't tight enough. If you can't tighten it any more then an additional washer should help. I have attached a photo of a silence lever from an Enfield that I have started working on. This one had two washers in place already.
    • Thanks everyone. I'll make sure I get a torch that is hot enough (probably propane) and give it a try next weekend.
    • I have a cheap version of this been using it for nearly 3 years now.  Works fine, i sometimes reshape the fork and when i past reworking i fit another fork insert. I try to save the pennies with cheap general tools  that add up to the pounds for the real goodies.  Everything takes time Michael, you take it steady. Bet you cant wait to start setting up, I have a new room planned its been on the gonna list for ages. One day . Watch the recip saw and fibreglass spells ,  a grinder does the job but you will get covered in fine fibreglass dust if thats what the tub is made of. 
    • Hi everyone, I have an enfield mantle clock where I can't get the silence lever to stay in the silent position, the first three images show the positions of chime, silent (when held), then the silent position when released. Is there something missing that helps it stay in the silent position? Are the marks of 12 & 49 the pendulum length and year? There is a stamp inside the case, is this original or a device / repair date? Any help much appreciated, thanks
    • Hi everyone! Hope you're all keeping well. I'm working on an old Chronosport Chronograph with an Ebauches Bettlach (EB) 8371-67 and broke the lower pusher's rod and leaving the other half still screwed on to the button pusher.  I was able to unscrew the upper button albeit with a little resistance perhaps glued by the previous watch repairer. However, for this lower one, the rod just wouldn't budge. I've soaked the button in Acetone in the hopes of melting the glue and it still wouldn't move. Blasted it hot with a hairdryer, touched it with a soldering iron and still no go. As you can see on the photos below, the pusher is flat on one spot due to my holding it with a vise grip, yes, that's right. Vise grip. I was desperate see. Twisting and turning both the rod and button resulted in nothing. I did, however, successfully bent the rod. So, further trying to correct the bend the next day, I ended up snapping the whole thing in two. So, I'm wondering what my options are and if someone can give guidance: Replace the rod. Where to get the replacement rod then how to remove the broken stump? If removing the stump, how and with what? Replace the whole set of pushers, ie the upper and lower buttons. If replacing, will generic parts do and where to acquire them. Any advice or solution given is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jesse   Chronosport c1970s Pictures of the same button. Note the stump and flattened button. This picture is the other pusher. Disassembled with no issues. Note the melted gasket.
