I am about to send my Omega Seamaster GMT off for service after I noticed a light misting inside the crystal. I put in in a ziplock with a new dessicant packet and 48 hours later it was clear again but I know it is time...
I got an estimate of $200 from a shop in PA, one for $250 when I called the Omega Service Center, and one for $575 for a well known Omega expert repair place locally. I know the one in PA needed to be pressed before agreeing to do a pressure check and I don't trust the $250 from the Omega SC. I know several people who swear by the local expert and I was impressed to hear what they would do and that the seals and parts (hour wheel) that commonly needed to be replaced during the service were included in the $575, and it could be less once they got it apart.
Anyway, does anyone have any recent cost they would be willing to share? Right now I am leaning towards the local expert.
