Omega Seamaster wearers – help.
My Seamaster is at least 20 years old, still keeps good time.
My constellation is about the same, both serviced as and when they play-up.
The best bit about owning an Omega is that your average ‘Yoof’ hasnt got a clue what it is.
Rolex…for show-offs and car dealers. Horible things.!Posted 5 years agodavecharltonMember
Seanoc – if you still have it I would like to buy your CWC from you as I collect them – I guess it will be about a 97 model – then you could put the funds towards your next new watch – drop me an email at DCharlton55(at)btinternet.com – replacing the (at) of course! Im in Newcastle so not too far from youPosted 5 years agowrightysonMember
Had my planet ocean since I was 35 , Two and half yrs ago, loved the original croc strap but ridiculously impractical! Bought a genuine omega strap that works on the original deployment! It doesn’t get worn in the day due to work but I never take it off from fri night thro the weekend and wear all the time on holiday! That coaxial movment is guaranteed for 5 yrs without service. Haven’t read anywhere about the waterproofing up to one yr!?Posted 5 years agodenniMember
I bought a used large Seamaster from this chap, Neil, 3 years ago:
He put a new battery in it and I have just had to have it serviced and while they were at it, battery change. It also needed a couple of very small parts inside replaced. Hardly surprised as I hammer it. Wear it every day, take it kite surfing, kayaking, climbing, its been in the desert, the Himalayas and dropped out of my car window at 10 mph by my beautiful 2 and a half year old!
Despite all this, it looks great and the only thing I did was replace the original metal bracelet with a “Sinn” divers strap which is bloody brilliant.
The standard price if sent to Omega is about £500 with about 4-6 weeks turnaround but Neil recommended me a chap called Mike who does his own repairs from his house and it cost me £200 all in with a guarantee on parts and battery and was back within 4 days. He reckons that It shouldn’t need anything doing to it for anything up to 6 years which I think is fairly reasonable
Beautiful watch and so far, bomb and child proof. If anyone wants Mikes details for repairs etc, drop me a line or ask Neil at chronomaster. And no, I ain’t on commission, just being nice :0)
This is the one I have, lovely piece of kit!Posted 5 years agohoraMember
coolhandluke what Seiko/model is that? Very nice.
I had two Omega’s – kept on breaking the straps and BROKE the glass. My F1 Tag bought in 1991 still needs repairing….funnily enough I NEVER broke it- mrshora borrowed it as they come up quite small don’t they! and dropped it after 1 day. FFS.
Now I wear a proper/full on diving watch (Momentum) with…..deeply scratched glass 8)Posted 5 years agoCaptainSlowMember
I broke my watch recently and sent it here for repair and service – http://www.chealwatch.com/.
Excellent service and reasonably priced.. You could look up the model you are interested in to get an idea of what a non manufacturer service will cost.
Edit: OP look for an alternative if you can. I’d disagree with specialknees – sea masters are very very common, very ripped off and come with a cheaper quartz movement. If you are going to shell out for a nice watch, try not to buy the default safe option that lots of people are wearing.Posted 5 years ago
