    Omega Seamaster quartz - new movement

    I received this beat up Seamaster quartz which has some sentimental value so I was willing to pay and have it repaired but the watch repairer said he can’t fix it. He suggested I find a new movement altogether an have him swap it out.
    So 2 questions:
    1) what other omega quartz Movements would work in this watch?
    2) would replacing with a different brand movement such as a Seiko NH35 work as well? I’m open to a non omega movement but would want it to be a quality movement, auto would be great too.

    The interior markings on the caseback will tell people which model of Omega it is. and from that, the movement calibre. Then it's a case of researching whether these can be repaired/replaced with a direct Omega movement/replaced with some other movement (quartz or mechanical.

    Mmh I'm not too sure about replacing it with a non-Omega movement.. Personally, I'd take it to an AD and ask for their opinion. Of course they are going to want to sell you original parts (and corresponding service), but then at least you're sure of the quality and workings.

    Please do not consider another movment. A Seiko would not fit the hands anyway. Don't make it a Franken watch.

    That looks like a 1310 movement.

    Find a good watchmaker able to find out what parts are needed. There are quite some parts available, for instance from this seller:

    https://www.ebay.nl/sch/i.html?_odkw...+1310&_sacat=0

    You could also set an ebay search and wait untill a complete movement pops up. Or ask around on omega forums.

    Maybe ask on this forum:

    Thanks, I’d Iike to keep it all original as well without having to pay for an entirely new watch. I’ll do about those channels as well. Helpful links!

    Omega case # 196.0072 is paired with a Caliber 1315. Will be very hard to find.

    Re: Omega Seamaster quartz - new movement

    Old quartz watch movements can be disassembled, cleaned, lubed and if needed repaired. I think you need to find an experienced watch maker. You may also want to ask for resources on the Omega or Watch making forums here on WUS. FWIW a small local watch shop has a fully disassembled Seiko quartz movement from a few decades back on display. The owner uses it as an example of what can be done. And if the movement is truly "dead" then consider finding a cosmetically worn but running Omega with that movement. But please resist the temptation to use a generic movement.
