    Good braking grease for Omega 501 barrel

    Barrel is in great shape but I need new grease now. The price of Kluber 125 has gotten even higher than I expected. Is "Glissalube A" a good option? Others that will have the correct properties but less expensive than Kluber 125?

    Thanks

    I've used Moebius 8201 with very good results. I have an Omega 491 in which the mainspring is behaving a little strangely (not slipping enough). The grease has been expired for much longer than I should have been using it. I've purchased 8213 and it's inexpensive, but have not used it yet. 8217 has similar applications. Maybe someone else can recommend an inexpensive alternative.
