Why won't my "solar" powered watch charge/work any more?


Some of these eco-drive watches use a swinging weight self winding mechanism (albeit through a generator) or a solar cell under the dial, some use both. Either way the capacitor is the thing that holds the charge and once that fails it will need replacing. Sometimes not as straight forward as replacing a battery as you nay have to remove the auto weight and sometimes usually on the solar ones its just a case of popping it out and a new one in. They are quite difficult to identify and get hold of but they do differ from normal batteries as they come with 1 of the contacts attached to them to prevent fitting an ordinary battery by mistake

My omega deville ladies prestige quartz is losing time. There is no second hand on the watch and the minute hand seems to tick every 10 secs or so. It has just had a new battery replaced by omega...


Yes. The minute hand ticking every 10 seconds is normal. Losing time is either battery or a movement malfunction. Only a trained watchmaker (or presumably Omega) can determine which. Take it back to Omega

How do i release the pin crown from my omega f300


There is a small screw (or maybe push-stud) almost in line with the stem entry point and slightly in from the edge of the movement, half unscrewing (or pushing) will release the stem.

Just a quick question On my Omega Double eagle, I went to mexico for the week left my watch at home and when I return I gave it a shake to start the movement being it is a chroncile watch and for some...


A mechanical watch will tend to stop in the same place if an internal gear is slightly unbalanced and/or there's a spot of grease/dirt that makes that particular point on a gear slightly more difficult to pass. I've often seen watches with day/date indicators stop just around midnight, as it takes more energy to advance those dials than just move the hour and minute hands.
Try winding your watch with the crown as opposed to shaking it to wind it via the automatic rotor. Actual winding will bring your mainspring up to full power much faster than a whole lot of winding via automatic rotor. See if this changes the behavior of the watch. If it doesn't, you probably need to have a watchmaker take a look at the watch. He or she will probably recommend cleaning the movement to clear any dirt that might be causing the problem.

Find watch numbers, seamaster automatic


I hope you have Omega Dynamic?!

If yes, then the crown can be removed by appling slight pressure against the watch. The stem inside the watch is made of 2 pieces and the crown can be pulled out. But be careful, there are chances that the stem may break :-)

Hi, my omega seamaster planet ocean has stopped. it has the co axial movement. is this serious? How do i get it restarted as it wil not with winding etc, thanks rob


Hi Rob, Don't worry if it's a genuine Omega and hasn't been subjected to serious abuse then whatever the problem may be it won't be terminal. All mechanical watches, particularly high quality watches such as this should be serviced every two to three years and in this case ONLY by a qualified Omega service person. Cause may be a simple as lubrication however the low fiction properties of these watches are fundamental to their revolutionary design. It may have become magnetised, or any number of things may have occurred to have caused it to stop. If you cannot wind it via the crown then the mainspring is wound by movement. Try shaking it for 15 to 20mins and if it doesn't restart take it to an authorised Omega repair service. Jo

Differentiating omega model 2561.80 and a model 2531.80


Kris,
The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it.  This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to.  Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch.  If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.

Not Ticking


There is a problem with the movement. You do not want to overwind it. You will have to send it in for service. There is a 2 year warranty for all omegas.
