Managed to find time today to pop the movement out of the case - and I'm hopeful when looking at this side that the rust showing on the drive train is surface only.
The dial looks a bit better out from behind the badly scratched crystal (I'll get polishing on that soon).
Still mulling over what to do with this face - leave well alone or try some TLC. Hmmmmmm?
Costed a replacement stem and crown - $90. I don't suppose anyone here would have one that fits an Omega 100?
Finally a question for you Omega experts out there. Engraved on the back of the dial is the following and I'm interested to know if this means anything. Cheers.

Lemrich et Cie S.A. was a specialist dial maker. Their dials were also supplied to Rolex and other quality watchmakers. It appears they went into liquidation in 2007. Lemrich et Cie S.A., La Chaux-de-Fonds - trade register data and business information
Others may know more about them of course.

Good idea. Have done so.
Turned out to be very good with the movement condition
But dial is :( almost everything is gone
Chaos is my focus
Yeh. I can get it re-painted of course - but is it worth it?
I think I will see if it will clean up a bit and then see how the movement goes. If that works out well then the $150 for the redial would probably be worth it.

Finally have the movement back from the watchmaker, and with the new stem and crown (even without refurbishing the dial) this is looking pretty good.
Looks nice now. Any movement piccies after the refubishment? And how well does it keep time?
