I would say it can be regulated to a specific wearers wrist, in this case to gain 2.5 in relation to its current performance but that may then mean its not technically within spec if run through the testing. In other words, if you send it in, it will be fully tested in various positions, pass the tests and it will be returned to you untouched with a confirmation letter saying its all fine. Much better to self regulate it over night with resting placement. Sounds like a hump but its easy to do once you learn which positions to leave it in.
Watches that run slow drive me bonkers. However I would wait and see how it runs after a few months (as others have stated).
Is just pull the bandaid off and send it to get fixed now. My brand new 8900 seems to be running as the tests subjects it to. About +2 p/d.
OP; do you have the warranty and chronometer cards? Create and online Omega account, add your watch and pull the tests they ran on it before they shipped it the the AD.
My PO was running c. +0.5 spd. Pretty good but it bothered me that it was so precise that it was difficult to find a position to slow it down. But better to be on the fast than slow side.
As you know, Omegas are supposed to run between 0 to +5 spd so -2.5 spd is outside of their specs and you shouldn’t have any difficulty getting it adjusted. However, I would hold off until you are sure. Sending a watch off for repair can be risky as you never know if something will happen in transport or while on the watchmaker’s desk.

Always interesting to hear different peoples approach to a watch that’s a little slow. I would think a local shop could make that adjustment
Adjusting shouldn’t be too difficult, but I was told by my AD that the co-axial movement needed special equipment, i.e. not a simple Timeograph to check the accuracy. Don’t know how true this is.
Yes I would, but I do defer that it is a personal preference. I don't like my watches losing time. With the better quality brands such as Breitling, Omega, Rolex , and even Ball, I've never had a problem requesting and receiving regulation within 0 to +4 seconds per day by asking nicely and letting them take their time to perform the regulation.
