    THANKS, GUYS: My restored Omega Geneve 1969

    Hey all -- I posted in December looking for advice on service for my grandfather's mint condition 1969 Omega Geneve my mother found in his things 10 years after he passed. You all were very helpful, and I found a certified Omega repair service in San Francisco thanks to your recommendations. I was able to keep the original crown, crystal, everything. Here's a picture of my restored watch, with a new ostrich band, which I'm wearing today:

    This post is old but can you tell me which repair shop you went to? I'm in San Francisco and need to repair my speedmaster. Most everyone I've spoken with wants to send the watch out of town. I would be willing to take it anywhere in the Bay Area. There must be a good watchmaker here.

    Thank you for any leads!
