I just rebuilt a Omega caliber 1342. I finally succeeded but it was a very learning lesson. I found that there is a sleeve to install a more available battery. I also found trouble with the date changing mechanism that involves plastic parts. Cleanliness is very important for these to work properly. Also, I found that the magnetized gears that change the date are very touchy so anyone fiddling with that part beware to not… Read more »

I can. This particular movement first failure is the date changer. It is made of plastic for one thing. Other comment is it is a battery eater. Generally around 1 year service. I removed the date change system to allow this watch to at least keep excellent time. The date change system is too heavy a load for this particular design.

Greetings — I wish to fix my Dads’ watch — A gift from IBM Corp. Omega Quartz (top of dial) Seamaster De Ville (bottom), 14K Gold – solid not plated, filled or anything but solid. Engraved IBM QCC 1981 (Quarter Century Club), Paperwork shows CAL.1342 movement (but the watch doesn’t work). It’s like a Rolex Day/Date (Which IBM switched too awarding the next year.

John these are often easily repaired by someone who knows what they are doing. Ruby’s Jewelry in Sunrise FL repaired my watch after other high-end watch makers told me the same thing you were told. Give them a call, and see what happens. Good luck with your watch!

This is a great movement. It is an Omega’s in-house caliber. One of the first Quartz from the brand, if not the first. It is made to last. It has very sophisticated attributes, like the hour hand changing separately, and a second hand that doesn’t backlashes. Extremely precise too. Very interesting caliber.

Just to update you the Calibre 1310 is the first in-house Omega Quartz caliber. Both great movements but cleanliness is paramount for these and they where designed to run on 1.35v mercury batteries, which are no longer available so the equivelant 1.5v batteries will work but with reduced life span.

Thank you for your response. The 1.5v won’t affect its durability or anything? Thank you!

Hi Luis, no the durability will not be affected just the battery life is reduced to something like 20 months

Hello everyone, I found an Omega Seamaster Caliber 1342 in my father’s estate. Unfortunately it does not work anymore or the battery is not in good condition. Can anyone help me?
Best regards Dirk

I have an omega seamaster watch with a 1342 movement damaged, so I found an omega 1342 movement working on ebay (don’t know what was the watch model for this movement but not seamaster); my problem us that the watchmaker told me that the movement doesn’t fit and couldn’t be used in my watch.
Is that possible? that the same watch movement model doesn’t fit on a watch that uses that movement?
