Looking for informations about the Omega Seamaster Professional Quartz watch.

Welcome here. The first information you need is that the watch is counterfeit, and very poorly.

Sorry to hear that!
I bought it from Spain a year ago.
From Chrono24 online...
It s a Real Omega! For sure!

Do you think so? To start, your "Seamaster" has a tachymeter bezel which is never used on a diver or non-chrono watch. Then lack of any thickness in the indices, poor lettering, thick date font. On the back the lettering is filled black but it shouldn't, plus no circular finishing. etc. Compare to the picture below from a current ebay listing, about which I don't guarantee authenticity either.

If you want another opinion you can post on WUS in the Omega section, but I suggest you take better pictures, and with the case back removed.

Also, I hope you didn't bought in the present conditions? I'm surprised that Chrono24 allowed this watch to be listed.

Thank you for your excellent info!

This watch run perfectly.

But since I change it the battery it stop fonctioning.

I send it to the UK Repair Service center it call Repair by Post.

They ask me for 670 BP it s about 750€ to repair it.

I cancel the repair, they send it back to me, it will arrive in few days.

But they never talk about Fake watch.

I know the bezel it s not original.

But the inside movement are Omega I read it on it. I will send the picture soon I got the watch.

Anyway... I bought from ebay another old Omega Seamaster Professional to replace the movement.

Here the photos of theis watch.

I would love to know where I can buy parts for it.

Great thanks for your great info!

Omega restrict parts, it would be easier to get ETA movm't or parts e.g. on Cousins UK. They report to have gilted hands, X22164.

Please post pictures of your Seamaster on Watchuseek.com, let us know what people there thinks about it.

No specific video is needed, it's the same as with any other regular watch.

Thanks for your efforts.

Hello Thomas please pm me when you get the watch back and I will be happy to guide you through the procedure to replace the quartz movement and hands. With regard to removing the winding stem and afterwards the hands, I would suggest you procure the following which are readily available off eBay (just check origin and associated delivery date first or you may be in for a long wait): -

Brass watch tweezers
Watch movement cushion
Hand removal levers (pair)
Hand re-fitting tool
Watch makers screwdriver set (budget / low cost unless you intent to make this a future hobby)
Adjustable watch back removal tool
Clean table, some time and a patient mood.

Sadly, I cannot comment on authenticity of your watch - but would tend to think you would have been advised if the watch was not original?

    • Yeah definitely feeling some regret as I was getting to the deep innards of the watch, being careful not to inhale the smallest screws, referring to YouTube to try and figure out what I was looking at... The watch came up pretty cheap in my neighbourhood and I couldn't pass it up. I'm not sure it would justify the cost of a professional service though, so here I am
    • I have an omega triple date repair....the issue is that the month wheel is jammed and will not advance....if the date is advanced via one click of the crown it will stop at 31..the only way at this point to advance it to 01 is via the crown while setting the time...now the issue I am having at time with...getting the pressure ring case back off...for some reason on older pieces I have not had an issue...on this one yes!..any advice on how to remove it would be most welcome...there is no where on the  case back indicating where to insert a case knife....my horotec case back remover was no help in this situation either...thanks...
    • Cheers oldhippy beat me to it,  yep as old hippy says that what it does, its cheap aswell, I think I only paid a few quid for my block from cousins, you have to move the brush very fast but nice and light at the same time to get the best results, then peg out all your pivot holes.
    • Did you modify the ergonomic oiler as well? Does the oil sit on yours as it does on mine?
      I just don’t know how I could use them, perhaps for posts, touching them with the side of the oiler. The oil is going nowhere if it touch something with the tip.
    • After cleaning and polishing brass. If you French chalk the brass parts with a soft clean brush it prevents tarnish of brass and can add that extra shine. Some clockmakers still use this old process today. It is also another way in which you do not need to bother to lacquer parts.   French chalk is magnesium silicate.
