At Illinois Watch Company our CW21 watchmakers have been to SWATCH group for brand specific training on Omega products including multiple calibers co-axel escapement multiple chronograph calibers. We also have been restoring vintage Omega calibers for over 18 years we have huge inventories of NOS parts we have access to large amounts of vintage material that most watchmakers do not have. We have experience working on vintage omega chronographs such as the 861. We feel that since we had serviced over 700 of the 550 (or the variations of this) caliber Omega watches we are very qualified to service these mechanisms.
