    Omega Geneve Questions

    Recent $10 purchase. 1975 ref 1660 163. Cal 1010 17 jewel. So entry level Omega. 20 micron plating that shows noticeable wear. 14k gold filled beads of rice band that is in quite decent condition. (Has # 70 on end links but no number on bracelet). Crystal clean but not signed. Crown is signed. Movement looks clean. Dial is perfect. I Would consider replating this piece. However not running. I can get the balance to run for a few seconds and then stops. But the second hand does not move at all when balance is running. Any idea what this means or how big a fix? At low initial cost I have financial wiggle room. Be helpful to know something about this before a consult with watchmaker.

    Could be a lot of things, dirt stuck somewhere or maybe a broken mainspring, but this happened to me once... I couldn't get the watch to tick for more than a second or two, I took it all apart, and I noticed one of the screws that hold the rotor platform on was missing. It was stuck inside the gear train!

    For sure it will need a service. But there is more to this than dried oil. That second hand will not move at all. Possibly its not connected properly? Gonna try and take the movement out and see how the second hand moves. Watch does wind and set. I'll take it to watchmaker tomorrow for diagnostics. Thanks

    Quick update. Ron D. - your suggestion proved to be the answer. Watchmaker checked the non running watch. Opened the back, pulled the balance , found good sized piece of debris stuck between wheels. Removed it. Cleaned and lubricated gasket. Watch been running since. Took him about 2 minutes. No charge. Will get its full service in due time. So nice to see it running.

    go to nesbits or bob ridley, they do both marvels on vintage Omegas and do very fine tuning when it comes to accuracy regulation on these movements
