    DC Area or Richmond, VA Area watch service recommendation needed

    Hi,

    I recently moved to the DC Area for work and also end up going to our Richmond office every week. My old auto Omega Seamaster (I inherited it from my dad when he passed. not sure how old it is but it looks like the current deville e.g. not a diver but a dress watch) stopped working. Does anyone know of a good place that won't rip me off to fix it? I'm guessing it just needs to be serviced... I had it done 2 years ago back at home and it cost $300... didn't realize it was going to cost that much.

    Thanks

    I've used Continental Jewelers on Connecticut Avenue for service on my 1971 Omega Seamaster with excellent results. If your watch stopped working then it may just need a disassembly, cleaning, reassembly and reoiling. There is always the chance it could need parts replaced as well. Only a watch repair shop will know. Continental will give you an estimate before starting work.

    Welcome to the DC area and WUS!

    +1. There's an old school place in Midlothian @ Hull and Courthouse.
