i have a new to me vintage omega from 1964 i think... anyways its a cal 610 with date.
i was just playing around with it so much because i love the watch, and when i was winding it today, i stopped when i felt resistence, all is good...
about an hour or so later, i don't know what came over me, i thought i'd give it another wind (expecting half a turn or so), and after turning it just a tiny bit, i felt resistence, then i stopped, turned it in the other direction, and then back in the direction of winding and that's when i knew something was wrong.
the resistence was gone and the crown is now free spinning (no friction and no audible 'clicks' anymore) in either directions when pushed alll the way in.......
basically i suspect i broke through whatever mechanism that is in place to give resistence that makes it so you cannot wind it any further.
please tell me this is a cheap fix? what did i break? the main spring? or click spring?
edit: watch is still running, but i suspect once the power runs out completely i won't be able to wind it up anymore.
also by pulling out the crown i can still adjust the time perfectly.
