Maybe it’s Google’s search algorithm, or it’s just a coincidence: Two Omega calibre 601 in a row, and both from Sweden! This one belongs to Pär, and the case looks quite different, but it’s the same movement.
The watch doesn’t work at all, and you can wind it forever. Looks like the mainspring is broken.
This 601 is in super shape – no rust, no huge amounts of dirt, no dissolved gasket.
Yep, it’s the mainspring.
All aboard the cleaning train.
The new mainspring gets a bit of grease.
The barrel bridge assembled.
What a beauty!
And a beautiful performance on top of the looks.
Great looking dial in great shape!
With a new crystal, and the case cleaned, this is a beauty.
