This time i´am restoring this beautiful Omega Seamaster Cosmic 2000.
It´s powered by the Omega 1012 automatic movement and it beats at 28800bph, the lift angle of the balance is at 52°. Omega introduced this model back in 1972 on the international collection.

This Omega-Watch has one of the rare press-in cases. The inner case (container) is press-fitted into the outer case (jaquette) by an additional O-Ring.
This O-Ring seems to have completely dissolved on this watch. The container doesn´t hold in the jaquette anymore and the residue of the O-Ring sticks everywhere. Apart from that, there are some signs of wear on the case-parts, the crystal has many scratches and the crown comes lose as soon as i tried to set the time.
The movement works but loses more than 1 minute per day.

I need to disassemble the whole movement, clean all the parts and re-assemble it with some fresh oil. The setting-lever is a bit bent, thats the reason why the crown comes lose when i tried to set the time. I fixed the setting-lever and after reassembling everything, this watch is in a fantastic beat (+2 seconds per day) again.

I hope you liked this restoration, if so, like, comment and subscribe ;)

You don't need any music in the assembly, your craft in silence and the sound of the small pieces, it's more than enough. It's mesmerizing actually.

Absolutely fantastic watch restorations viewed here. Makes the mind boggle about the precise operations to dismantle, clean, polish, replace or repair damaged items and then reassemble with the replacement of worn parts. Excellent skills.

Beautiful!!! Love how it recovered all its dignity, from the precision of its movement to the shine of the case. I know sometimes it’s frowned upon, but I think a regimental G10 strap would fit with it, you know, like the grey and black James Bond uses right now.

I pressed my youtube app wondering what would pop up for the first video and I saw this, I genuinely got happy. Man I really like your videos... I just love the idea of a guy taking apart a watch, cleaning it and putting it back together only hearing the watch/tools or whatever sounds you want to call it. Great stuff ⌚

This was done at a time when engineers were really engineers. Today, with all the modern software and tools, they design the parts which, when produced according to drawings, cannot be assembled together... :-(

And those who build the first prototype. Immagine those in pre-electricity era and pre-autocad era. All man made with light from the window or who knows what they used back then for better illumination. Those build the small accessories must have had problems with their eyes after only a few years period.

My dad bought an omega watch in the 90s and used it every day till he died. I gave it to omega service for restoration because the watch means a lot to me but always wondered why the service was so expensive. Thanks to your video I now know how much effort it takes to restore these watches. Amazing. Thank you.

@Peer X Having a chrono serviced by Omega themselves is at 750 Euro atm. A simple 3-hand-watch about 500. I own a '73 Geneve Automatic, 3 hands and a date. Service costs would be twice as much as I paid for it... LUL

What a gorgeous watch, with just the right color dial. Amazing restoration project. Does it add to the value of the watch to keep the old band? I would be tempted to chuck it and replace it. It's the only thing that looks worn after all that. Thanks for the video!

Good content, so, it always amazes me how the cogs never seem to wear out, is it something to do with size or air density with very small parts? if those cogs were scaled up to, say, about 6' across maybe they would last a couple of years with really thick oil?

I had to watch this twice... I am utterly astounded at the complexity of this beautiful piece of engineering. Thought you were never going to get to the end of all those tiny components. A joy to watch this restoration. I don't know HOW you remember where it all goes but guess that's because you are a craftsman and clearly respect your work. Now I understand why these watches cost so much. ❤️
