Send it back to Omega, they charge an arm and a leg but you get an almost new watch back with a 2 year warranty. I've been wearing this Seamaster all day every day for nearly twenty years, and this past year it's been gaining and dropping time so much I couldn't rely on it, so I sent it off to Omega finally. $600 CAD and 6 weeks later, it's more accurate than a quartz, I've lost about four seconds in the month since I've had it back! My crystal has some damage and I wished they had replaced that too, but gives it some character....

Whats your everyday watch

Postby russlits » Sat Dec 01, 2018 10:14 am

that is a good deal. Yeah you are right, "best" is a broad term. I guess what i meant is what is your opinion of the best. Ive been getting Cheaper Than Dirts magazine for years, I dont know why I havent thought to check them.

Thanks

My everyday watch is a Seiko Sumo. Amazing accuracy for a 500Euro auto. Only downside is the face isn't crystal so it scratches easily.


Not very accurate at all to be honest. I mean, I like it cos I like old and historical stuff, but I'd estimate that it's out by a couple of minutes a week.


Not bad for a watch that's almost old enough to draw a pension I guess. Mine has some sentimental value, but then again the 1000€+ it would cost to restore it would go a long way towards buying a new one...


Do you think it really needs restoration, or just a proper full servicing? My Seamaster is only 20 years and has never been serviced (for which I was scolded). It was losing time, so I took it in last month to the Omega AD and should have it back next month. It's costing BHD 90, which is about EUR 213. So if you're ever in this neck of the woods, bring your watch!
