The Omega caliber 1310 Megaquartz 32 Khz was introduced in 1973. It was Omega’s first in-house quartz movement, and was produced until about 1978. It has 8 jewels and a frequency of 32,768Hz. The caliber 1310 later evolved into the caliber 1315.

This movement has been found in: vintage Constellation models (ref: 396.0846, 396.0810, 396.0811, 396.0822, 396.0809, 196.0062), Seamaster (ref: 196.0023), the Seamaster Mariner 1 (ref: 196.0054), 1976 Geneve models (ref: 196.0066),

Watches with this caliber have two buttons on the right side of the case – above and below the crown. One button advances the calendar date, the other button hacks the second hand for precise time setting.

Is that plastic inside?!

No, there is no plastic as part of this movement. There is a coil shield, but that is metal.

Thanks! I almost forgot I asked this lol. The gray part that says Omega looks like plastic, no? I don’t think it’s bad just curious.

Hi Louis, yes, it took you 5 years to get a reply to this 🙂 LOL

That grey part is the shield protecting the coil and it’s made of metal.

It seems to be a common part that goes missing over time as it presses into place but often comes loose. I typically put a drop of glue on the base since there’s no reason to ever remove it unless you’re testing or replacing the coil.

I bought my omega seamaster 1310 (with the octagon casing) back in 1978 and works as good today as it did back then,and have only ever had it serviced once apart from battery changes,in all these years. It is accurate to within ten seconds per month which is excellent for a watch of this age. It’s beauty is ageless, and still stands out amongst today’s top competitors. Back then i paid £300 Sterling, a similar Omega today would set you back thousands.I take mine to all watchmaker who changes the battery checks the seals then pressure tests it. And am… Read more »

It has been documented on certain websites and blogs that the 1310 calibre has mineral glass (which can get scratched) To put the record straight my 1978 model has in fact a sapphire crystal which as those of you may know does not scratch. Perhaps the MK1(with date only) may have had glass but the later model (with day & date and bracelet as standard) has the reflective sapphire crystal verified by a jeweler. I hope this puts the record straight.

The 1310 is the movement number not the reference model number. The same movement is used in different models. So… different models may have a plastic crystal, mineral crystal or sapphire crystal like yours. It doesn’t mean other sites are wrong, it just means they were talking about Omega watches with the calibre 1310 and different crystal than yours.

I bought Omega Geneve megaquartz. The watch is in good condition
Unfortunately, the coil is damaged and I can’t get the original one. Anyone have for sale?

Hi Tom,unfortunately the omega seamaster 1310 Megaquartz can now only be serviced by Omega in Switzland,as they have changed their policy and only supply their parts to SWATCH. However,SWATCH cannot service the 1310 not just because of it’s vintage but because of it’s intricate calibre unique to the 1310 that only the Swiss can do. Hope this is of some help.regards Robert.

It doesn’t solve my problem, but thank you for the answer.

You may know a place in the network where you can buy parts for this caliber

It’s just a case of shopping around online in finding a watchmaker who in turn may be able to get parts even if they are generic.

Does the 1310 and the 1315 caliber use the same circuit?
And do any other Omega calibers use the same circuit as the 1315?

Sorry Ira, I have no knowledge on the 1315 you may need to do further investigation Online or perhaps contact your nearest Omega agent.

Hi I have a semaster with a 1310 cal but have just been told by my watch maker that the coil is faulty and he cant get parts for it anymore, (he replaced the coil about 20 years ago) could anybody point me in the right direction with regards to obtaining an apparently obsolete and rear part ? Thanks .

Hi Geoff,I’ve had the very same problem with my Omega Seamaster Calibre 1310 ref: 196.0054. After 42 years the coil went after dropping it on the floor and was told by my local watchmaker that it would be impossible to get the parts as they are obsolete you could try eBay but you’re taking a chance which I would not do the only place that would service it is omega in Switzerland but it will be very expensive so you would have to weigh up the costs vs sentimental value. Best of luck regards Robert

I am lucky enough to have three cal 1310 Omega’s now and while they are not straight forward to work on they are exceptionally well engineered and can be regulated to be amazingly accurate. They do need to be serviced at the same intervals as a mechanical watch to keep the power consumption to a minimum. Historically the are very significant being the first omega in-house calibre. Originally designed to run on a 1.35v mercury battery, which are no longer available, they will happily run on a modern 1.5v cell but with reduced life span. Expect to replce batteries at… Read more »

I 100% agree with you. However when my 1310 coil went, I bit the bullet and sent it back to Switzland and got a full service done which cost me about £500 but for that money it was completely refurbished and casing and bracelet cleaned and polished that was in July 2020 I have checked the accuracy and by my calculations it gained 14 seconds in twelve months, which is more accurate now than when I first bought it in 1978. This is only it’s second service in 42 years.

I came across one of these in like-new condition and quickly added it to my collection. It’s the exact model featured on the official Omega website in their Vintage Collection. 196.0030 14K – 20 micron plating. Mine even has the original gold buckle on a NOS suede leather strap. The movement serial # dates it to late 1973. It’s keeping amazingly accurate time – I’m seeing > 5 seconds lost in 2 weeks. I think the important thing if you have one of these is to make sure you also have the coil shield, or if it’s missing, find one… Read more »

I recently bought an Omega Constellation Quartz watch, model number 196.0062 stamped on the inside of the stainless steel case. I want to fit a new battery. The present battery is marked Renata 329, but it seems much too small for the space available. What Silver Oxide battery should I fit ?
