Lovely story and watch, enjoy it.
Sadly it's not over yet... My joy was short lived when it became apparent there was a problem with the autowind mechanism, it was making quite a noise. So the watch went back to jewellers... and then came back to me with an implausible tale that 'it's just one of Omega's more noisy movements sir" - and no better.
So not convinced and after taking it to another local watchmaker to have a listen, who confirmed it needed attention. I took it back again and insisted it was done properly. Off it went again to the Jewellers watchmaker and a week later I picked it up minus the rattling noise. Happiness.
2 days later I discovered the crown winding was very stiff and sounded and felt like there was grit in it. not happiness.
Fed up with being fobbed off by the jeweller with different lies (3 times at this point). The dial is another story!!! I took it to an independent watch maker to examine. which is where it is now. They know the jeweller and pass dial restorations on to them to go to Italy. So this could get interesting...
I'm awaiting the news. and of course a bill in addition to the Jeweller's restoration bill.
