Dougie sent in his grandfather’s Omega Geneve. The crown isn’t original, and it needs a service and a new crystal.
The case back gasket has dissolved, and there is lots and lots of dirt.
The movement looks very good indeed – original, no scratches, all you want to see!
The bottom plate looks pristine, too.
The amplitude is very low, but that’s no wonder considering the watch hasn’t been serviced for decades.
No scratches, and just a bit of dirt.
Whilst the movement parts are in the cleaning machine, I turn my attention to the case and bracelet.
All ready for reassembly.
The new mainspring ready to go into the barrel.
The base movement is back together and beating.
Now that looks pretty good!
I case the movement, and put a new gasket into the case back.It’s extremely rare to see a vintage Omega in such good shape. Do I really have to send it back? 😉
