Restoration: Omega Speedmaster – Ed White

The Omega Speedmaster ‘Ed White’ is another collectible Speedmaster in the lineup. This watch is set apart by its straight lugs which is rare for a Speedmaster. This watch was in generally good condition and it was evident that it either had good service history or sat in a drawer for many years and wasn’t touched.

It needed the regular service repair such as closing the barrel up to adjust the side-shake, a new mainspring and few pivots required polishing. The dial, hands, and case were all kept strictly original. The hour had lost some of its luminous compound but was left according to the owner’s instructions.

Great care needs to be taken when overhauling such a timepiece due to its rare nature.
