Tissot and hamilton only guarantee parts availability up to 10 years. Then they will offer watch replacement program instead of servicing the watch.
I was wondering how old will omega still accept and able to service vintage watches then? There's a thread saying they guarantee for parts availability for 20 years, but the information from omega website is gone/not specified now. Imo 20 years is too soon don't u think? Does rolex have it for 30 years is true? Any idea about other brand like zenith or iwc?
How can we pass down a watch through generations if the brand unable to service the watch. Let alone offer for new watch program.. bear in mind that not everyone has access to good independent watchmaker in their countries they live in. Especially with inhouse movements.
