    Hi Again,
    I do have a question about something I found on this Omega. While I was replacing the balance I found that it would not seat properly. What I mean is that everytime I started to tighten up on balance cock the balance stopped running. Tried several times and each time balance stopped. Finally looked at watch balance came off and compared to watch I was installing it to. What I noticed was that on plate of watch I was fixing there were three tiny hand raised bumps underneath where balance was to seat. Looked as if someone had taken a sharp instrument of some kind and deliberately raised up a bit of metal there. Is there any reason someone would do such a thing? Why would you want the balance cock to be angled up a bit on end closest the balance wheel? I smoothed the bumps down and as soon as I did that balance seated first try and has been running ever since. Just curious.
