OMEGA Seamaster Chrono Question-Help!

971 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  flamingmeaux
I just purchased a used SM Chrono (2598.80) from Ebay. Watch works fine except date doesn't turn until @ 4 am the next day. Is this normal or a defect that needs to be fixed? I own a SM quartz that does not have this issue. Please help.

I believe that watch has a calibre 1164 in it which is based on the Valjoux 7750. The date change on that movement doesn't happen in a near-instant, like many other movements. I've had several and they take a few hours to completely change. Having said that, 4:00 AM does seem beyond the range of any I've had.
Thanks for all the responses to date. Does anyone know if a service/maintenance fix the late date problem?
A good watchmaker can definitely fix it ... they'll probably want to do a complete overhaul, though, which won't be cheap on an 1164, since it's a chronograph... you're probably looking at ~$400, maybe more.
