    Last weeks Omega haul...

    So, these arrived bright and early Monday morning



    Some of the bits are for the 30T2 and will be very very useful to me, plus a few other odds and ends for the 26.5 and random others incl some 34X.

    1962 Omega Seamaster - no crown or stem but working well, some patina.



    Back, UFO style automatic.



    24 Jewel 552 movement - I am pretty happy with that, especially as I had no idea what was inside.



    The other is a 1950 Auto



    Dial is really good.



    Omega 342, movement is in good condition - working etc. Note the hidden bumper springs. The reason the bumper has worn plating is that there is a dent in the back cover and it touched A pity.



    A good haul. These two were 100% better than I was expecting, and I ended up with two classic auto movements in one go The dials are good, the cases good and OK (the 342 needs a little lug hole TLC), and both run well - whereas I was expecting neither to work at all.

    Great finds, there's not a seamaster dial to fit a 565 auto in there by any chance is there?

    I love those old Omega' s, have a few of them, 2 in repair at the moment.
    Nos parts for a 30T2 are more and more difficult to find.

    cheers Frans

    Thanks guys, it was quite a windfall (local). I even needed some of those parts - it wasn't just me being a pack-rat.

    The Seamaster turns out to be quite interesting. It is a front loading case with a very novel (to me) crystal sealing arrangement (please ignore the ugly test strap).



    It has a special crystal, you fit the bezel ring over the crystal, then fit the inner split tension ring, then press the whole thing on to the case.

    Parts now ordered: inner and outer stem, crown and crystal.

    A couple of nice pick ups there

    A friend was showing me a Seamaster with the same movement a couple of weeks ago, and I noticed the hidden springs on the bumper mov't.........we've got a Tissot and an Eterna bumpers where you can see the springs, so I checked on Dr R's site to see if that was how they were supposed to be....which it is!!

    Very nice watches, I have around 10-15 omega projects ;) will post some here soon
    I love those old bumper watches, Omega movements are often very durable, great to work on too.

    Yes please I have now worked on a 284, and yes - it was quite nice to put together. I will however, never ever take the dial side inca-block housing out again, I'll stick to removing just the jewels. Who knew the inca-block spring wasn't retained... not me. A real bugger to get back in.

    Yep, shame they want to charge you an arm and a leg for them. The parts in the above pile came in at about $15 all up, so I was pretty happy and I got very lucky. The watches cost more
