Omega 2500C/ETA 2982.A2 Co-Axial

Question

Evening all. 

Would anyone be able to tell me if the ratchet wheel from the Omega 2500c and the ETA 2892.A2 are the same? i've been having a look at cousins and the part for the Omega 2500c seems to be coming up as - Ratchet Wheel, Frederik Piquet 0021 31.020 priced at just over £14.

However the Omega 2500c is based on the ETA 2892.A2 and the ratchet wheel for that is - Ratchet Wheel ( 415 ), ETA 2890 priced at £8.95

Its the Co-axial Movement.

Thanks for any advice.

I've found that the wheels are the same if anyone wants to know. Exactly the same so no idea why there's a price difference. Typical overpriced because of the name.

In this case It's a small difference, I think can it be due that parts prices are somewhat random unless about rare partes, in which cause gouging logic prevails. Beside, Cousins is not supposed to get parts anymore from Omega, so whatever you can still get is a blessing.

Consider instead how Omega and Rolex can happily charge more than 1,000 Euro for service when the same work, to the same standards cost a quarter of that or less from an independent. Now that is going to make a balance sheet difference.

Yes your right, I'm one of the independents who charge a fraction of their prices, but the big corporations as always trying to push out the little people! I only hope that open source movements take off. I had a customer in the shop today who has a Longines watch. He was telling me that he wished he never bought it, he said that when he bought it, no one mentioned he would need to have it serviced every few years and now with Swatch restricting parts he said he would never buy a Swatch branded watch again. I make sure to tell all of my customers what is happening with Swatch and advise against buying their brands unless they want to have huge bills every time everytime anything goes wrong.

      I have an omega watch, the inside of the case is signed as is the movement, however I cannot find another one like it anywhere online. Has a Harley Ronda 3775 movement (signed Omega). Before I try and sell this I just want to make sure it's real. Seems strange to put a in decent quartz movement, have it signed inside the case and on the movement and be a fake, but since I can't find another like it I want to make sure. Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Omega Seamaster approx 1968.
      The watch belonged to my grandfather so I would ideally like to have it restored. However it's in quite a bad way so I'm wondering if it's worth it. It would need a new crystal, face, probably hands and some kind of case restoration. The main problem is water ingress damage shown in the pictures. I don't have a picture of the outside of the back to show you it is worn almost completely smooth but there is faint evidence of the original markings.
      What are my options? Is it viable?
      Thanks in advance,
      Moo

      Hi guys,
       
      First proper post on the forum. Thanks again for having me.
       
      Just took receipt of an Omega Chronostop 145.010.   Cracking watch but the hour hand has a lot of crud on it. Just wondering:
       
      1. Is it rust or something else like decayed radium?
      2. Any ideas on how to correct this?   Risk removing the hands and going over it with pegwood or try and track down spare hands (having trouble finding them).
       
      Cheers in Advance,
      C

      I have a flash shortcut to ETA labs 7750 calibre that showed assembly dis-assembly. It no longer works due to Adobe flash reaching EOL status. I visited ETA labs web site to see if there was an alternative and lo and behold  no access to anything technical at all. Does anyone know how to get access to what we use to have access to? Looks like protectionism has escalated.

      Hello,
      Anyone here have an experience with a similar vintage Omega and knows how to remove the movement from the case? Tried rotating the movement (slightly, i'm afraid i'll break something) but with no luck.
      Thanks!
