    Question Omega Flightmaster 145.026.. I need a crystal gasket

    Greetings,

    Bless Omega, since Swatch took over, getting parts has become a PIA.
    Sad to say.. but true.

    I'm looking for a couple of Crystal gaskets for this
    Flightmaster and ZERO luck.

    Any suggestion where I could find a pair??

    Thank You, pc

    Try measuring the gasket. If it is in .5mm increments, then such gaskets can be purchased from most suppliers. If it is an odd size, you'll have trouble.

    I have visited with ofrei & co., no success.

    As for measuring, I do not have the old gasket to measure.

    This isn't to much of a biggy, just frustrating with swatch and their control standard of having everything under thumb from build to burial. No matter that the piece in question has been in the market place for decades prior to their inception.

    I'll get a proper gasket one way or another... pc

    Is it only the gasket? If you buy any gasket that will fit and fit the glass that fits into the gasket then problem is solvered.

    Otto Frei will order the gasket you want if it isn't in stock.
