Just to show what the right lubrication in the right place can do… I was looking at a client’s Omega Constellation this morning, as he wanted a quick assessment of the watch. He had a 14 day return option from the seller, and he wanted to make sure the watch was fundamentally fine.
So on to the timegrapher, and it looks terrible. All sorts of things could be wrong here, especially the hairspring…
So I put the watch under the microscope, and all looks well. The watch is just dried out. Just to give me some reassurance, I carefully oil the escape wheel with some Moebius 9415, and put it back on the timegrapher, without touching anything else.
What I want to show here is how important the right lubrication of the escape wheel is.
