This great gold Omega Constellation was sent in by Jason for a service. The dial has been restored, but it’s been a professional job, and looks good!
The case back is in good condition, and nobody has polished the living daylight out of the Geneva Observatory, which is a good thing!
The date changer doesn’t work, and here is the reason why. The little spring that engages with the date wheel has come loose, and I order a new date change wheel.
The gear train.
All clean and ready for reassembly.
The new mainspring goes into the barrel after I have applied braking grease to the barrel wall.
The base movement is back together.
Now I turn my attention to the bottom plate.
The new date change wheel has arrived.
And all is working again. The calibre 564 also has a quick set date.
Dial and hands back on.
The case needs some cleaning as well, and I will give the crystal a polish.
The movement back together and cased.
Not too shabby.And we’re back in business. A rare gold Constellation that hasn’t been mucked with.
