This quite rare square Omega came in for a full service. The parts are so small they can fir on a 5 pence piece!
However Omega were, and still are, a great quality watch and they do not spare the quality on smaller watches.
Pretty happy with the finished product. Another great watch making it back home ticking away for many years to come.
If you have a vintage Omega watch that requires a manual wind, it's important to service it regularly to keep it in good working condition. Here are some steps you can take to service your vintage manual wind Omega watch:
Find a reputable watchmaker or Omega service center. It's important to choose someone who has experience with vintage watches and has access to genuine Omega parts.
Have the watchmaker or service center disassemble the watch and inspect the movement. They will clean, oil, and adjust the movement as needed.
Replace any worn or damaged parts with genuine Omega parts. This may include the mainspring, balance staff, and jewels.
Check the accuracy of the watch and adjust the timing if necessary.
Clean the case and polish the crystal.
Test the watch to ensure it's running properly before returning it to you.
It's important to note that vintage watches may require more frequent servicing than modern watches, so it's a good idea to have your watch checked every 2-3 years. Regular maintenance can help prevent costly repairs down the line and ensure that your watch continues to function properly for years to come.
