Can anyone point me to someone who will work on a Beta 5100? I can't find anyone who will work on it.

The date wheel won't change dates and it's running a bit fast.

I'm located in Miami.

Thanks

I have a beta 21 WG.
No one in New York would touch it. It's a very unique movement...
The RSC should be able to service it, I wouldn't give it to anyone else. It might even need to be sent to Geneva so that the right hands can work on it.

Is a Rolex Geneva only project - and realistically I don't even think they have parts for them anymore.

I know for a fact that the other watches that carry Beta 21 movements of that era can be parted up and used for parts. I know a couple of instances where people has done that.

Cheers

This was a collaborative mov't that Omega and others used also.

Omega watchmakers are far more consumer friendly and Omega parts department are awesome when it comes to old watch parts and service. These guys very usually have parts accounts and can do most work without even sending back it back to Switzerland.

the key is finding the correct Omega guy for this request- go ask on the Omega forums and you'll get sorted

besties,

Steve

Or Omega Bienne
I think STS would be best, ask for Tony.

Good luck, Colin.
