seamaster quartz electronic module



work colleague dropped in his 21st present from 29 years ago, his Omega seamaster quartz, ref 196.0280

I am looking for a 1337/9600 electronic module to replace the original, but can't find on the t'interweb.

Then thought that a replacement module may not work due to age of electronics etc etc. 

How would i get the watch working for him?  could i swap another calibre perhaps? or should he accept it wont be working anymore?

comments welcome

Many thanks

That is probably the most sought after Omega quartz movement out there. Or maybe not. But i have seen many that would like to buy parts or get a new movement for that. Does look like your movement could have some corrosion from leaking battery. But it could just as well be okay.  Think there is a walk trough service on the forum. 

Finding parts would be difficult i think. And expensive. Maybe find a donor watch.

thanks rogart63,

by donor watch you mean another  working identical model?

Doesn't have to be identical watch . As long as it has the same movement inside. All depends on how much he  think it's worth to him.  He could probably send it to Omega and have it repaired. But would cost more then buying a new similar watch.

    • I got this little beauty  at a swap meet on Sunday.  I changed the battery and still nothing.  I know nothing about quartz. Is there a trick I kneed to know?  Is it worth taking down to be repaired?  Should I look for an ETA movement to put inside?  It does have the gold matching band in good condition.
    • So jdm if you want I can mail you the watch of your dreams.

    • Thank you AndyHull and JerseyMo for responding with really helpful instructions!  You guys rock!  i have to get some rodic to help hold these two little mini-monsters in place. I was trying to use a small bit of sticky-tack but it didn't hold well enough.  I would get the screw into position but it would fall over when the screwdriver touched the screw.   For the 24 movement that still has the broken screw end in it, I will try to get that out after I get the lever and screw installed in my working 24.  And yes, I will install the crown/stem AFTER I have the lever and screw in place on the plate. Again, thanks for your help- i really appreciate it!!!  Will let you know when I get things back together.
