I am female and this is my first Omega. Originally I wanted Constellation Iris '95 with rose gold and diamonds, but my inner Scrooge vigorously protested , so I had to buy a used Constellation from probably 20 years ago from eBay. I really like it, it's very elegant and comfortable, and the size is perfect for my wrist. Also, new Constellations don't come with date except for automatic ones, but I needed quartz because I don't wear watches for a long time during the day.
I've been lurking on this forum for some time, and I have a couple of questions. First, some painted numbers on the outer bezel of my Omega are worn out. Would it be easier to fill them, or polish out the rest of them? Can it be done at home, or it needs to be taken or sent somewhere (to a watch place?)
Second, I want to take the watch to a watch place to be cleaned and serviced, and the bracelet to be polished. Should I take it to a regular watch guy that I know - but I don't know if he had any experiences with Omegas (although he probably will charge me less). Or should I take it to a watch place that specializes in vintage watches and is more experienced with Omegas (but probably will charge me more)?
