Omega Watch Service – Repairs
An Omega watch is a precision instrument made up of hundreds of tiny parts – make sure that you always have it serviced by a skilled watchmaker.
Your Omega mechanical watch is driven by a very small mainspring which delivers only a small amount of power. To enable a watch to run with so little power, the gear pivots are extremely fine and in an Omega watch, run in jeweled bearings, oiled with the finest quality synthetic watch oils. Even these oils however, will in time loose their viscosity and break down. Adding fresh oil to old oil is very dangerous as it will create a grinding compound which will cause serious damage in a short time. There are other factors too; for example, the seals in the winding crown can become worn and allow dust particles into the watch which can also cause damage.
It is necessary therefore to have your OMEGA WATCH maintenance serviced periodically. We recommend every five years.
Every omega watch serviced and/or repaired at OMEGA WATCH REPAIRS MELBOURNE is completely dismantled. All the parts are cleaned using complex cleaning and rinsing solutions together with ultrasonic , to remove every morsel of dirt, dust and old oil.
Each part is then closely examined with the stereo microscope for damage and wear. Pivots are burnished using a special instrument called the Jacot Tool, an operation requiring a great deal of skill. After careful reassembly, each watch is tested and timed to Omega specified tolerences using sophisticated electronic timing equipment.
Before setting the movement back in its case, the case is dismantled, cleaned and polished. Factory grained finsh can be renewed if required.
Quartz watches also require servicing in exactly the same way as mechanical watches. The difference in a quartz watch is that instead of a mainspring driving the watch, there is a battery and instead of a balance wheel and hairspring oscillating at eighteen thousand times an hour, there is a quartz resonator oscillating at many thousand times a second and a step motor operating through a micro chip to drive the hands. But, beyond the step motor, there is a train of wheels or gears exactly the same as any mechanical watch. The train needs the same service as a mechanical watch.
