I was reluctant in voting for never had serviced a watch yet and was pleasantly surprised that I was in the majority.I've been lucky I suppose or neglectful.Now that I'm a fortunate Omega owner I'm thinking that I should follow the recommended service intervals because I know I'll be enjoying them for a life time.
I haven't had to have one serviced yet. I don't wear them too much so unless one has stopped dead, I don't think I would know when it needed service. I didn't see the voting option of "Take out a loan", that would have been my second vote.:scared:
I have a local watchmaker for the routine , easy stuff on most of my
watches.. however for when the Omegas need or are ready for a service I would like to send them in to Bienne for the full spa treatment ... not sure what I'll do just yet hopefully that's still a couple of years away..:thumbup1:
BTW, I think ole Grumpy is/was a ceritified (or certifiable ) Omega technician, that might be an option for me.
Well, I don't follow standard service intervals, but instead let the watch tell me when it needs serviced. To date, I haven't had to service any of my watches....
I can say that when the time comes to service my PO, I most certainly will not use the New Jersey (lack-of) Service Center. I had the watch there for another non-movement issue & the experience was horrible & IMO they were seriously trying to rip me off. They'll never see a watch of mine there again. I'll find someone local instead...
I voted send to Bienne. Although I haven't actually sent one there yet, this is what I plan to do. Why even mess around with local watchmakers or even Omega centers in places like New Jersey? It only comes around once or twice a decade, so why not do it right and give yourself peace of mind. If it is the price that you are worried about, then why did you buy an Omega in the first place? hehe
