    Servicing question for Omega

    What's best for me to do in terms of an Omega service?


    Should I go for an official omega service?

    - £430

    Or go for somewhere like luxurywatchrepairs.com

    - £240


    Quite the difference...


    Also the latter say it will be a 2 week turn around vs a 6 week wait with omega.


    Pros for the latter are it's cheaper and quicker. Pros for official are... Well its official..


    Luxurywatchrepairs.com say they are officially approved by omega however...

    I have no issue with using a local watchmaker over the manufacture repair centre. My only thought might be availability of parts, is the local guy able to source parts for your Omega?
    The current rotation: Orologi Calamai G50 MkIII, Omega Speedmaster 3510-50, Omega Dynamic series III, Omega Aqua Terra 2504.80, Omega Seamaster 212.30.41, MkII Key West , Eterna - Matic 1948 Chronometre, Tudor BB36 79500, Marathon TSAR medium, Pro Trek PRW3000-2, Seiko Alpinist perpetual calendar GMT.

    If it is a keeper I would live with local. If I was looking to sell in the future would probably pay a bit more for the Omega direct one as probably that would be partially recoverable in any sale

    Check out Nesbit's or Archer from this forum. Both highly regarded.

    +1 for Nesbit's. I recently had an Aqua Terra serviced by them and they did a great job. Nesbit's has an account with Omega so they can get OEM parts for replacement. I also want to mention that Nesbit's referred me to the Tourbillon Boutique in Seattle for my Planet Ocean chronograph because the boutique would be able to replace the pushers for less money than Nesbit's could (Tourbillon is the location of the west coast Omega service center). I had a great experience with the omega service center as they were able to perform a full service and install a micro adjust clasp for $150 dollars less than the quote they had given. The outtake is that I have very recently had great service through both the Omega service system, and through Nesbit's as an authorized repair center.

    I’d check out the track record of luxurywatchrepairs on several forums and if it was good I go with them.

    Re: Servicing question for Omega

    IIRC, Omega's price is all-inclusive (any parts replacement needed is baked into the price, no extra charges if they have to replace something). Is that true for the lower price, or are they going to come back for more money if springs or wheels need replacement?

    As long as they have a good reputation, an independent watch maker should be fine as long as they can access OEM parts if needed, IMHO.

    Not that my experience might be helpful to someone outside the US, but below is the link in the Omega Forum describing my experience with the Omega Service Center in Culver City, CA.
