Topic: Omega Service/Refurbishment

Hi all

Sorry if this has been covered before. I did search but only found one topic that was similar to what I want to ask.

After 6 years of owning my 2003 Seamaster 2531.80 I have finally had to decide to send my watch to Omega to be serviced. Performance is far from where it should be but having never been serviced it's long overdue.

Just before Christmas I took the watch into Regent Street Omega to find out more about pricing and timescale.

They told me that the whole process will take (normally) 8 weeks and that the full service is around £400.

I also mentioned that I was thinking about replacing the bezel because its got scratched, faded. They told me this would be an extra 250 to 300 pounds.

I asked them about the process, what they would do etc. But I wanted to check with members on here who have also sent their watches for refurbishment by Omega what the watch should come back like?

It is in need of a good polishing/rebrushing and refinishing.  For around 600 to 700 pounds should I get the watch back aesthetically and mechanically as close to brand new as you could expect.

Can anyone offer their experiences with the regular Omega service?

Thanks

Hi
I use Swiss time services who are authorised by omega to service there watches, they are cheaper and can’t fault the work they do. I have had 4 watches done by them and was just about to send them another, same timing around 6-8 weeks and you can have the watch polished to make the case look like new again.
I have made some extra requests in the past and they have had no problem sorting them out.

I had mine serviced by Omega a couple of years back. The watch came back looking like new. Amazing.

In theory, when you read Omega website, for the amount of about 600 euros (depending your watch being a chronograph or not) they will change ALL used parts or non working parts and will effectively repolish the entire watch !!!

Funny timing (see what I did there?) as i just mailed my Omega Seamaster in for service yesterday. I will let you know how it goes for me. Although I don't expect to hear anything for a few weeks.

+1 here for Swiss Time Services use them regularly great service. Also did some custom work for me on my SF PO, I knew Omega would not agree to do. Fully recommend
