    Service advice

    I unfortunatly have to send my 2254.50 Seamaster in for service. It is gaining about a minute a day.

    I know about the LA and NJ service centers from reading on here. Looking at the customer service link on it looks like there are some smaller watch shops that are authorized service centers.

    Can I send my watch to one of these for warranty work?

    In another thread it looks like several people reccomend Nesbits in Seatle for some work and they are on the list, are there any others that people would recomend?

    I am going to have to ship my watch no matter where I send it.

    My concerns with NJ and LA are the turn around time, and getting my watch back in worse cosmetic condition than I sent it in.

    First, if it is still under warranty, you can certainly take it to an authorized service center and get if fixed free of charge. I did that to my 2254.50 when it was running 10 seconds slow a day.

    Did your watch start gaining a minute-a-day all of a sudden? Unless you already know you did something to cause the problem - like dropping it - there is a chance it got magnetized. If so the fix is both simple and quick.

    Less than a year old, still under warranty.

    No obvious damage like a drop.

    So the other places listed like Nesbits can do warranty work?

    Anyone have recomendations?

    From what I've read, I'd send it to Nesbit's in Seattle.

    I just dropped my watch off at the local LA center earlier today, but that's just because I wanted to avoid the whole shipping scenario, but if I didn't live near any center, I'd definitely do Nesbit's.

    I took my PO to the Omega Boutique in Beverly Hills which shuttles it over to the LA Service center. Picked my watch up today looking good and running strong! They had my watch only two weeks. So my experience with the LA Service Center is OUTSTANDING!!
