Hello all,

I am in need of a new hairspring for my Omega bumper (cal. 344). I have heard that all Omega bumper movements use the same hairspring. Can anyone verify? Also, anybody have any leads on where to find a replacement?

Thanks for reading.

All these Omega's shared the same balance complete. This is from the Jules Borel website: You will probably end up having to buy the balance complete. Jules Borel doesn't have the part (balance complete or hairspring) in stock.

You may want to try one of these companies: McCaw's, Esslingers, Eckcells, and Cas-ker.
If they don't have the part you could also try: Mechanical Watch Supply LLC: http://mechanicalwatchsupply.com/ Look elsewhere 1st, because he admits he charges more, but he has rare and hard to find wrist and pocket watch parts. rd@mechanicalwatchsupply.com

Twin City or Barton and Chase may also have the parts you need.
