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.

    • Are you sure it is the correct tube. When I have fitted they are just friction fitted. If just a snug but not a tight fit using loctite will work.

    • Cheers mates!! Im working on a Seiko 7123A, im ususally not doing quartz, they are so unpredictable I think... Or is it I dont know them good enoght.... anyway. I have oiled all bearings, cleaned, og had to fix a little on the quick set on the date and day. And now the quick set work, the date and day skifts when I turn th hands 24 hours. The movment runs fine, and keeps time. But when is shall shift date and day during the night, the movment stops around 01.30, but the second hand works. It seems like the movment cant drag the calender work through the shift.   Can somebody pls help me with what the cause is??
    • Famous painters might paint a water colour in 4 hours. 50cents paper and paints. worth a fortune. Go figure. I heard a story about Picasso who used to sign table cloths in restaurants after entertaining a large group and never got billed. He also said he could buy a house if he painted something.... Sure there is clever marketing in watches, but I don't think the inherent value is actually in the materials...perhaps its something else less tangible.
