Omega Watch Parts, Tools, Bracelets

Omega Watch Movement Parts Are Ordered By Caliber Number.
The caliber number is stamped on the watch movement.
The model name is not used to order Movement parts or Case parts,
please keep the name to yourself, since everything is done by numbers only.

Case numbers are used to select all case parts (bezel, crown, crystals, dial, gaskets, bracelets).
The case number is located inside the back case.
The case number should look like these examples.
488 (very old three digits)
1488 (quite a few four digits)
15251 (some with 5 digits)
166.012 (if 6 digits always 3 then a point followed by 3 more digits)
172.0214 (if 7 digits always 3 then a point followed by 4 more digits)
Data for case numbers goes back as far as 1946 and case numbers are still used in model present day Omega watches. For watch cases with 3, 4 or 5 digits drop any Letters or Dashes (-) or a space followed by perhaps 2 more numbers and just use the 3, 4 or 5 digit numbers. If 6 digits or 7 digit number is found then you must add a dot (.) after the first 3 digits. You must give the color, since case number does not indicate color or metal.

Model numbers supplied with the original warranty papers, when the watch was first sold can also be used to find original equipment part numbers. However we do not have information on all model numbers and you should use the case number for most case parts anyway. Who knows why, however Omega does not always print all the dots (.) and double zeros (00)) needed to be full model numbers. A full model number looks like this 3570.50.00 or 3570.00.00, so you may need to add the dots (.) and double zeros (00) to the end of the number so you end up with a model number the has four digits a dot and then two more digits followed by a dot and then two more digits.

Bracelet numbers all except Titanium are stamped on the back of the Bracelet Clasp. Click Here for more information on Titanium Bracelets.

Use the Bracelet numbers to order links and tubes.
The bracelet number does not designate the color or metal used.

Out of stock or special order Omega items can take 3 to 8 weeks or more. Please send an email to check stock before ordering any of the shop on-line Omega products.

We have been selling genuine Omega watch parts as a distributor in the USA for the agents for Omega Spare parts both here in America and Switzerland for over 70 years. Both Otto Frei and his wife, Alice Frei were born and trained in the trade in Switzerland, they first began distributing Genuine Swiss and American Watch Parts in 1930. When formed, Otto Frei was quick to join Watch Material and Jewelry Distributors Association, now called the JIDA for the Jewelry Industry Distributors Association of which we are still members of. Today, 75 years later we are still located only a few blocks away from our original address here in Oakland, California.

Omega SA, of Bienne Switzerland, in their 1954 parts catalog, stressed the fact that "a carefully assorted stock of spare parts is indispensable to the official agent and the watchmaker wishing to organize their workshop rationally and to ensure the efficiency of their after-sales service." The 1954 catalog also states that later to be published supplementary sheets, “will then become the valuable, even indispensable, guide of all those who are collaborating in furthering the reputation of the Omega after-sales service.” It was the independent material distributors, at that time located in every major city in large numbers (Boston and San Francisco,which have now have none had up to 10 material distributors in the 40s & 50s), who bore the brunt of stocking locally all the parts needed by a world still running on the mechanical movements. Unlike today, mechanical watches needed to be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Without a strong network of parts and service, no watch company could grow from the 1920s to the 1980s. These were the days before FedEx and local material houses were all over the place. We at Otto Frei, have during the many decades of our watch parts distribution for American, Swiss and Japanese watch companies did and continue to carry a strong stock of Omega popular watch parts making it possible for our watch repair customers to repair and service a large number of old and new Omega calibers is just a matter of a few days. We hope this website with the collaboration and help our long standing relationship as distributors for the exclusive Omega Spare Part agents both in Switzerland as well as their agents here in the USA, that we will help the watchmaker in finding the correct part as well as getting that part in a timely manner.

Omega, now owned by Swatch, has had a long history of watch parts distribution through a network of wholesale watch parts distributors in the USA. Historically, and even to this day, Omega SA in Bienne has sold spare parts using a network of agents inside and outside of Switzerland. Over the years, Omega has appointed several Swiss companies as the exclusive worldwide distributors for Omega parts. Inside the USA we have sold and distributed genuine Omega parts thru the official Omega Agents of Norman M. Morris Corporation, which was in charge of Omega inside the USA for many decades.

To allow the Norman M. Morris Corporation to spend time promoting and selling watches inside the USA the Hammel Riglander & Co Inc, Ben Jadow of B. Jadow and Sons, Inc. who was the original creator and owner of the Bestfit Watch Parts System and also The Newall Manufacturing Company were given the right to buy from Omega SA in Bienne and the task of serving the needs of the independent wholesales parts distributors who numbered close to a thousand companies back in the 50s. The Newall Manufacturing Company, which has just been sold in October 2005 to the R. Gaber Co. and Bestfit Watch Material Company are the only two current agents distributing Omega parts to wholesale material houses in the USA at this time who’s volume is not large such to warrant importation direct from the Omega part agents in Switzerland.

The collapse of the Swiss watch industry (late 1970s early 1980s) had a severe affect on Omega as an independent maker of watch movements and watches. The Norman M. Morris Corporation was no longer in collaboration with Omega and the Swiss Watch Technical Service Center was opened in Lancaster, Pa. at old home of the Hamilton Watch Company (Hamilton once the finest American Watch Company also had collapsed and was sold just before this). The Swiss Watch Technical Service Center was created to fill the void created when the independent Watch companies in the very rough climate of the 70s and 80s could no longer afford to maintain their own service and parts distribution offices inside the USA. The Swiss Watch Technical Service Center sold Omega Watch Parts to Otto Frei-Jules Borel Inc as well as other watch material distributors like us for many years.

Just a few years ago the Swiss Watch Technical Service Center was renamed to Swatch Group US. Everything else was to remain the same, we were told and that Swatch who by now grew large, had become the owner of just about all the brands of watches the Swiss Watch Technical Service Center was distributing parts and serving watches for that it was only natural for them take over this task and to change the name.

Swatch Group US, supplied us Otto Frei-Jules Borel Inc, a wholesale which parts distributor located in Oakland, California Omega watch parts for resale to watchmakers from Lancaster, Pa for many years before leaving Lancaster for New Jersey. In New Jersey Swatch Group USA, no longer had the ability to service the needs of the still alive and well but now smaller USA network of efficient watch material distributors most of which have been serving American watchmakers for 60 years or longer. These fellow watch material distributors are led and run by hard working family business that together employ thousands of people across the country. In June of 2004 Material distributors like us were told to use Newall and Bestfit inside the USA for our Omega parts needs in a fax we received from Swatch Group US just before the move from Lancaster. These two companies in fact had always been better and faster with a more efficient system of service for about 90 percent of all of the Omega material needs for the American Wholesale Watch Parts Distributor. The members of the JIDA wholesale watch parts distributors like us, based here in the USA kept the lines and flow of Omega watch parts open and available to the American Watchmakers and for the benefit of the citizens of the USA who own Omega watches, which were supplied with genuine Omega watch parts following an American tradition of competitive prices and free trade.

We do not sell Omega Watches we only sell parts to be used to repair Omega watches. If you are looking for a watchmaker to repair an Omega watch please see the home page of www.ofrei.com for a link to the AWI where you will be able to locate watchmakers by state listings.
