Help / Advice Needed With Omega Seamaster Quartz

Recommended Posts

Hi, Today I got back for repair today a small Omega Seamaster Quartz which I had given as a present in the late eighties. The caseback is marked with the number 1430 & the movement has the number 1430 on the metal bridge , 6 jewels. The IC has the number M701 8149. I removed the old battery , doesn't appear to have leaked & no corrosion evident on the terminals or elsewhere. I installed a new battery but it won't work. The only sign of life is the second hand is pulsing a little every second but won't move. I have very little experience with quartz movements as my tinkering apprenticeship has been limited to manual & auto mechanicals. This watch has been sitting in a drawer for over 10 years......................................... Any help advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Cheers, Trevor.

will be dirt in the train normally, if you are VERY careful use a probe or oiler and rotate a wheel on the train, thus removing the dirt, personally i would service it or at least the rain, are hardly any components and data sheets are easily found
