    Help with Omega

    Just picked up this Omega watch on ebay, I know the movement is a cal 1310 but that’s it. Can anyone tell me what it is and offer any suggestions on how to get it working!

    Mmh, since it's a quartz, I'd take it to an AD to see if they can help you. Even then, a full service for a quartz Omega isn't a total bank-breaker, so I'd consider that before trying things myself, but then again, maybe you're a lot more technical than I am ;)

    See your local quartz specialist for a quick test for viability.

    1310 cal dates at least to 1974 and the coil and module aren't available on the domestic primary market.

    I don’t mind paying to have it serviced if it’s worth my while, apart from replacing batteries I’m not that technical, although I’d like to be!

    The Omega reference number on your case back is 196.0058, if your search Omega 196.0058 on google you can find plenty of information, some from this fair forum site.

    Thanks that helped, early seventies, Omega Megaquartz 32Khz, cal 1320, 14k gold plated 20 microns apparently. Not worth much but I’ll get it serviced and see what it’s like.

    So does it not work when you replace the battery?

    It is a Cal. 1310 and not a 1320. Both are very different

    Most likely the coil is dead. The coil seems to be in a stupid place on these watches where a slight slip during a battery change kills it. There should nave been a cover over the coil.

    You’re right it’s a 1310, that’s my clumsy typing. I have looked at the coil with a magnifying glass and it looks ok to me. I’ve ordered a cheap quartz tester to see if I can get a pulse from it.

    There is.

    It's called a caseback

    Actually having spent a long time now looking at 1310 movements online I have seen some pictures that show a small grey plastic cover over the coil. Anyway, I got a cheap Chinese quartz watch tester, put my watch on the line pad and turbo charged the hands for a couple of seconds and my watch sprang into life and is keeping excellent time! Now feeling very pleased with myself since I fixed it myself.
