First, the pusher 086ST0079. It’s a push-fit pusher for the Speedmaster Reduced. 50% of those shear at the bottom of the screw thread when you try to unscrew them. Firstly, please don’t supply them assembled, and secondly, don’t screw them together like there is no tomorrow. The screw will break. At £35 a pop, an expensive pleasure. So changing one costs you an average of £70, as one out of two break.
Next in line, some crystals for older Omega watches. Here we have an 063PZ5000. You press it into the case, and it just breaks. The cheap Sternkreuz tension ring for £4 (the Omega one costs £33) fits like a glove, every single time. The Omega ones break, every other time.
This one broke nicely around the side of the rim. Good that Sternkreuz can make generic crystals that are of decent quality, and that fit.
Next on the list of grievances – hands. Omega can’t supply hands that just fit. They always have to be broached. Same for the 550 rotor bushes. They also have to be broached to fit.
Great stuff, boys. Maybe it’s best you don’t supply your spare parts any more, so we can use decent quality generic parts 😉
