In for a service and new glass this Omega Dynamic has a truly stunning original dial, the movement inside is a classic and favourite of mine, the 601. The movement in this case was not running as true as it should and the old glass had left behind the broken armour ring which required removal before a new glass could be fitted. Time to get her stripped down >>
The cal 601 is manual wind movement and servicing is fairly straight forward here with exception only being to the method of disassembly, usually barrel bridge first then train but in the case of the 601 the train wheels need to come out first as the centre wheel prevents lifting the barrel bridge. >>
Whilst the movement was cleaning the casing was cleaned up and dents removed, a new bracelet enroute should finish the job. Reassembly and lubrication is again fairly simple but a good level of cleanliness and accurate application of oil will provide for best results. Each jewel and pivot is carefully hand cleaned even after going through cleaner to ensure best running. >>>
With the movement assembled and running well the dial & hands were re fitted for testing before being fitted back into the case. A new glass always adds that shiny new feeling to any watch and even more so on older watches, the watch just awaiting the bracelet to finish the piece.
With the watch back together its time to add the bracelet and finish the piece >>>
The Omega dynamic is becoming as popular now as it ever was and with looks like this its not hard to see why :)
