Question about Omega Co Axial Small Seconds 4613.30.02 Watch for Men

Open Question

My Omega co-axial stopped, as well

My Omega Aqua Terra co-axial 2500C movement stopped, as well. When fully wound, it would not start. Shaking gently or quite ruggedly, didn't get the watch started either. It was sent to an authorized Omega repair shop who said it was a lubrication problem. Got the watch back and it worked for a whole 2 months. After that period, got the same problem along with the watch running way too slow (-9 secs/day and getting worse). I am hearing that this is a common problem with the co-axial. What could be the problem with this movement. Has anyone figured out what it is?

As I can see,this is an Automatic Omega watch.The most possible cause is that the watch is out of power.
Ensure the watch in your palm by passing four fingers throught closed strap and moving it up and down,making a trajectory of about 60 degrees, many times not too fast,not too slow.Try many times.If problem persists,my advice is to take it to an Authorised Omega Service Centre (as it is an expensive watch) for secure service and repair if needed.

I have wound muy omega speedmaster automatic to tightly at the bezel and it has stopped working. Can you tell me if there is something inside that can be released tostart it again?


There's a misconception that mechanical watches can be "overwound." Mainsprings in old watches can indeed set in place and freeze up if they are wound tightly and not permitted to unwind, but the steel used in modern mainsprings used in the past 50 years or so is an alloy that's much less likely to bind up compared to 19th century pocket watches. In addition, the winding mechanism in an automatic (aka, self-winding) watch is designed to slip once the spring has been fully wound so that the rotor and winding parts aren't damaged by suddenly binding up. In a manual wind watch, once the mainspring is fully wound, it's simply not possible to wind the watch further unless the mainspring snaps or comes loose from its anchoring--in which case, you'd be able to wind the watch forever without ever storing power in the mainspring to drive the movement. While it is possible for a watchmaker to open your watch and release tension on the mainspring, it's overwhelmingly likely that something entirely different is keeping your watch from ticking and keeping time.

Mechanical watches generally stop running for two reasons: (1) lack of power to the movement; or (2) something in the movement that is preventing the movement from running. If your mainspring is fully wound, you have power to drive the movement. It's time to think about what could be causing #2.

Problems in the movement are usually caused by dust or dirt that preventing a delicate movement part from working properly (e.g., dirt at the pivots can freeze up a gear, stopping a movement). However, it's also possible to have a mechanical failure, such as a bent tooth on a gear in the train. A further possibility is so-called "overbanking," which some believe is the origin of the myth of overwinding. A mechanical watch's balance assembly drives a tiny little forked lever back and forth to control the escapement and the rate at which the watch keeps time. If the watch receives a physical shock or if the parts are worn, it's possible for this tiny lever to get bumped out of its tiny pivot and jammed in place. When that happens, the watch will stop, even though a superficial check will seem to indicate that the balance is still moving freely. At the same time, because the watch isn't ticking, the mainspring isn't unwinding, and so the watch cannot be wound further.

In my experience, watches usually stop running due to dirt at the pivots or on one or more gear teeth. I generally see overbanking in older watches or mechanical watches that have been less precisely made and not routinely cleaned over their working lives--though I have seen it also occur in a few newer watches that were dropped. Better designed watches--and I would include Omega in this category--have escapement levers with built-in guards to make it more difficult for them to overbank.

As for how dirt gets into a watch that's supposed to be water-resistant and generally sealed against exactly that problem--well, as odd as it sounds, watches "breathe," and this process draws in dust and dirt over time. Worn against the body, a watch warms up and expands the air inside it, pushing some of it out of the case; upon cooling, some air is drawn back into the case. This process is obviously reduced in watches designed with a significant degree of water resistance (aka 50 meters or more), but the process is accelerated when you pull the stem out to set the time or even wind the watch via the stem--there's some degree of air gap between the stem and the stem tube, or else it wouldn't be possible to turn the stem. This microscopic dust--in minute quantities--mixes with the lubricating oils inside a mechanical watch and increase the friction in some of the key pivots. Over time, the combination of naturally solidifying oils that are thickening and a minute amount of dust can turn lubricating oil into glue. The watch cleaning process flushes the old oil and accumulated dirt from the pivot bushings so that fresh, uncontaminated oil can be used to re-lubricate these key gear axles.

Bottom line: if your mechanical watch has stopped working, it's much more likely that something is interrupting the intricate gears in the watch movement rather than a problem with the mainspring. A competent watchmaker or watch repair technician should be able to identify the problem relatively quickly and give you a definitive answer as to the true cause of--and cost to fix--your watch.

Stops after i take it off, I have to shake it to get it going again, problem is intermittent, I have no clue...


Your watch is self winding and will run down (if fully wound) for about 2 days.

This type of watch thrives on use and if not used will stop. To avoid having to re-wind by shaking, it should be worn every day.

(Some makers say that to full wind up their self winding watches, they need to be shaken (gently) aboiut 200 times).

My watch stopped run, it will only run for a few seconds and then stop, it has not been worn for a lot of years


This model is not on their web site but other SN models are and they are "self winding" types.

It could be that it needs to be wound by gently shaking it from side to side (face up). Some makers suggest several hundred times to wind the watch fully.

As most makers recommend that their watches are serviced every 2 or 3 years; if winding it up by shaking does not get it going, a trip to their service center might do the trick.

Leave the settings as for ordinary automatic movement. Co-axial movement has nothing to do with winding process - it was developed for more precise time keeping and friction reducing only, so, you can wind the watch in winder as usual.

Watch will not go,wind and then wear it,sometimes it will run for few minutes thn stops


If it were mine, I would have a watchmaker take it in for cleaning, Omegas are generally quality timepieces and worth the occasional maintenance cost.

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
