Photo journal for Omega Seamaster cal 471 service / resto

  1. WestCoastTime May 6, 2021


    Estate sale pick-up. Looked not too bad from the outside, but would not run reliably nor keep time.

    The cal 471 movement has the feel of an old house added onto from one generation to the next. Looks like it started out as a manual wind sub-seconds watch that was then modified to center seconds, & then modified again to accommodate the automatic winding mechanism. In a more modern movement you would expect to see those complications built into the movement itself, & not grafted on top as separate modules.
