    I've been a long fan of this modell, Certina DS-2. So I tried my luck and bought one in an auction. The watch was heavily worn but I saw that it had a beautiful dial under the cracked glass.
    The watch was a joy to work on, Certinas from 1970 is built like a tank, solid thick metall and robust parts.
    In the end after all work I think this watch turned out very good, movement is in a good condition also. Ready for new action :D

      @J P Sternkreuz ATCT glas is almost as the original design of the glass. Ofc the original looks best because it's a bit higher but this is very close.

    I've been a watch collector since I was 15. Without words or music, this video tells why. I was a "how does it work" curious boy growing up, taking apart trashed small appliances to understand the mechanics. At about 8 or 9, I could completely disassemble and reassemble my bike, then a lawnmower. Before I could drive, I made money in the summer repairing lawnmowers. In the 7th grade, I had wood & metal shop. Starting with my first, I worked on my own cars. Years later, this is why I love and collect watches. These tiny brilliant machines are like trophies to men who laid under a car and got dirty, oily, and knuckle busted. And when we dress, our fine watch tells the story. Thank you for this video.

      @Shillybaisuh Ever consider that he was so touched by the video and bought back such fond memories that he wanted to share his story due to the beauty of the craftsmanship in the video? The video was no way intended for him but this is a public comment section where anyone is entitled to say what they want, just as you are entitled to what you have said. As I am sure you have heard many times in your life "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it". Just let the guy share his story which others and the original creator obviously enjoyed reading. have a good evening!

    Absolutely amazing! was in awe just watching this beautiful time piece come to life. The skill it takes, to basically disect the entire watch and put it all back together, all those tiny screws and gears knowing where they all fit in, i headache just trying to figure how you effortlessly put them all back again it was like a math problem being solved and you still wondering how the solution was found 😄, it was like putting back together a classic vintage car with all the original parts, just awesome skills. 😃

    Wonderful to watch this robust-looking piece restored to almost as good as new! I have a 1971 Omega Flightmaster with much the same shape of case, except that mine looks a couple of years old, not as though it had been found in a concrete mixer! You made a very fine job of restoring that complex shape.

    • cflmaior
      cflmaior 3 ай бұрын +1

      @tacfoley Large watchmakers such as Omega, Tag Heuer, Longines etc. very rarely respond to individual letters (I have written many such since 1969 and only once got an answer).
      Perhaps you did not send your watch to an "Omega Service Centre", but to an "Omega Certified Repair Shop". When dealing with collectible pieces such as yours, official Centres know that such substitutions (f.e. regular pushers for colour-coded ones) would ruin the valour of your watch. The only exception is whether they have to replace the dial: the 910 originally had tritium in the markers, and Omega does not work with tritium nowadays. If you see a 910 with "SWISS MADE" written below the 6 o'clock position, instead of "T SWISS MADE T", you know its dial has been replaced - and the value correspondingly debased.

    • tacfoley
      tacfoley 3 ай бұрын

      @cflmaior Yes, I'm wearing it today and the dials are as you describe! About ten years ago I sent it to an Omega repair facility here in UK for a service, and when it came back, all the colour-coded pushers hade been replaced with plain Omega pushers. I complained about this and was told that it was a matter of policy to replace older parts with new ones. I wrote to Omega in Switzerland about it, but never got a reply. I found some replacement pushers in Australia for about £200, and it cost me another £200 to have them installed. That, plus the £800 for the service, wiped the smile off my face, for sure.

    • cflmaior
      cflmaior 3 ай бұрын +1

      First of all, I commend you in owning the "jewel of the crown" of the Omega line. (I even hope yours is the C-910 with the 24-hour dial at 9 o'clock, rarer than the C-911, which has a 60-second dial at this location.)
      Secondly, comparing the complexity of this model of Certina to a Flightmaster sounds like comparing a typewriter to a Linotype. (There is no anachronism in this, as the four are of the same vintage.)

I don't think anybody can see something like this and not have a huge amount of respect for watchmakers that do everything by hand. Not many people understand and appreciate the work that goes into making watches. You can't help but be in awe. Beautiful work.

    Perfectly produced video, no boring “manspeaking”, minimal musical intrusion, just great, gripping close up video. Fine work!

    Great video, great result. Don't care much for the sound effects. The quality of your work doesn't need them. Keep it up !

    Great job, I always appreciate this kind of nice work. In my opinion I think leather black or brown strap will look nicer on this one :)

    I always liked learning, watchmaking is something I owe myself, it is an art, seeing the electronic tools it uses, it is incredible what progress has been made.
    Where I am from there is no one to teach, I think that what you do should be taught and not lost in time, incredible work, I congratulate you.

    Amazing project, sir! This watch reminds me my dad's Certina (not sure about the exact model but it could be this one - need to check with him). I wish I can find someone who would give it such a treatment and bring them back to life again.

    It is unbelievable that inside the watch there is a whole system from many smaller or bigger parts that work armonically together....but the most fascinating thing is the beating 💓 you see in the mechanism which reminds me the human heart... giving life to this mechanism..... simply beautiful!!!!

    the technical aspect aside. watching it is like ZEN for me. its not less than a Poem to see it gets a new soul. its literally poetic to see the result and inevitably dive into the concept of time, life and death. watch is one of the greatest symbols of our lives. after that it use as a tool to measure change in life TOO. thank you for these beautiful videos. love and much respect to you man. 🙂❤🙏🍻

    Tengo uno igual, fue mi primer reloj comprado con gran esfuerzo con mi propio dinero. Tras ver este vídeo debo animarme a llevarlo a revisión para ponerlo de nuevo en funcionamiento. Lo llevé el día de mi boda en 1974 y ya lo tenía desde algún año antes.
