R. McMahon Watchmakers - Adelaide vintage watch shop and watchmakers.
Sometimes suitable parts are no longer available and second hand spares are worn and not suitable for collectors pieces. That's when you need a watchmaker and restorer like R. McMahon Watchmakers. Below is just one example of an early Omega Speedmaster chronograph calibre 321. So called moon watch. Some may remember it being used by the Apollo 13 astronuts to time rocket firing bursts when their computers malfunctioned, it helped save all 3 mens lives. Broken chronograph spring Omega no longer sells. The customer tried many places and was told too hard. We regularly make chronograph parts for early Patek, Rolex and Omega for clients around the globe.
