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 ;)

I now know why watches like these are so expensive, they’re amazingly well built. I can’t imagine the mind of the creator of such a beautifully intricate design and the complexity of making so many gears work in tandem. Great video 👍

I like how on the outer side it looks completely dead, but then you open it and the inside is still shiny and clean. Some awesome engineering!

Whoever designs these watches are real super heroes. The amount of time, thought and work that would go into creating something this intricate is incredible.

@Christian S My comment was maybe a bit ironic, of course there are great engineers today. But, from 15 years of experience in manufacturing ( from manufacturing engineer to quality manager ), I see that the level of knowledge has decreased. Today, younger engineers do not think, they mostly rely on software, input the data, get some result but often without understanding what is actually going on. And I actually do not remember when I last saw properly made production drawing 🙂

@Mislav Ribar well, not really fair. Today engineers are also building rockets that are reuseable. engineers today arent inferior in any way. but building a watch like this has become childsplay. maybe you can say that about engineers working on watches today but not about all engineers.

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... :-(

@Guardian Observer I'm picturing an old swiss man sitting at a table in his basement with a candle making technical drawings and taking measurements. It really is amazing how they did all of this on paper.

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.

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 can’t believe how flawless it was once you opened it up. I suppose the waterproofing definitely paid off.

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

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. ❤️

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?

The movement is a nice colour (is it a type of brass?) and I noticed it had some of the thinnest u-shaped tension components I’ve seen so far. Overall a nice timepiece and a job well done!

This blows my mind because of the many tiny intricate parts involved.. What really blows my mind are the actual people that design them from the begining, and the machine tooling that must be designed to make all these small parts.. Bravo👏for another masterful refurbishing of a beautiful work of art .

its complicated for people who knows not a lot about watches, but for a professional it's a lot of simple ideas put together over many years. It didn't come to existence just like that, there were gradual steps of complexity and miniaturisation

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!

Thank you so much for this informative are they intricate! I bought mine in 1975!! After 30 years not using it , started working immediately when wound! Alas, had bad experience from Swatch, ( both in the UK & US for servicing!) Luckily have found somebody in the States who knows all about them. Timeless, the correct usage of the word!!

Thank you so much for sharing this video! I'm an engineer but never even considered watch repair! My Dads 1970's Omega stopped working. I would have never attempted to completely take it apart if it wasn't for this tutorial. I have ultrasonic cleaned every part and now working !! I'd like to ask 2 things. The Stop lever snapped - do you think this is an essential part as it only stops the second hand whilst adjusting the time? Also when I finally put it all back together I did discover whilst setting the time the hands of the watch went crazy as if the pallet wasn't engaged. I took it apart and it seemed ok?? I reset it and working fine again. but not really resolved the issue?
