    Oris service

    This is just an informative post for those thinking about servicing their Oris, and the current time frame to consider.

    Sent my 3 month old Aquis in for service through my AD on 9/24 and it was approved on 10/13. I received a call from my AD this week informing me it would be at least another 2-3 weeks.

    The reason was the rotor was not moving freely and Oris (The Watchmaker?) said the entire movement needed to be replaced.

    Just an fyi.....

    Since it uses a Sellita movement, maybe a local watchmaker would be a better way to go once it is out of warranty for the next go around...

    So 5 or 6 weeks is too long? This is nothing in watch time.

    I never said it was too long, and for the record it's not been 5 or 6 weeks, it's now over 15 weeks since I sent it in. And I'm not saying that is too long either. Just stating facts....

    15 weeks is rather a long time IMO. Back in 2013 the average turn round time for a Rolex was only 16 weeks but I understand that they’ve since trimmed it to a mere 12 weeks.

    Hello DP not seen you for a good while but given the way that this post uploaded I got the feeling that you were back.

    I was considering sending in a 90s Oris (movement Oris 654, base ETA 2824) to the Watchmaker for an overhaul, but now I'm thinking it might be quicker/cheaper to just find a third party around town...

    In the same situation. Looking for a competent local watchmaker. More personable service and I like to support local businesses.

    I would send it to Oris, it's a guarantee that they have the molds/tools needed to competently service and overhaul the watch. The time-frame isn't much longer than a normal service, and if you have multiple watches in your collection it's worth the wait. Just my two cents!
