Hello all. I have an older Seamaster Chronograph, 2599.80. It was last serviced 6 years ago, through CW I think.

Movement is out of COSC spec, running +6/7 s/d. Chrono hands still is exact at 12 so no issues there. But the last service was just a mechanical service. Right now the blue bezel a few scratches and faded, plus lume isn't too good. The bracelet too has a few scuffs but nothing too deep. The seconds hands in red is now like a faded red, like the red on an old Singapore flag lol.

Is sending it in to omega worth the service? I see the omega service site the price for Chrono service is $9xx. Does the price include any change of parts etc, such as bezel and hands change? I know they do a full service and the watch will almost looks very new, and comes with 2 years warranty.

Are there independant watch repair places that can offer similar service and warranty at a cheaper price?

does not include parts replacement to my knowledge.
if U know they do full service and watch will come looking almost new, how can they meet **new** without restoring lume and paint job?

Forget to buy a 0? Intentionally forget?
So budget is 14k? Or still at 1.4k?
Rolex which model? Price range varies greatly

5% cheaper than sg... u understand GST?

haha don't be so harsh on me. My budget is 14K
I am open to all the models.

So it's impossible to buy 5 % cheaper though~

But is there any exclusive version only available abroad?

guys, my panerai 90 got some problem. the date quick change is not working properly, think maybe the date disc is loose or something.

Anyone know how much does it cost to fix it and where to go?

thanks

Will wrap up this thread's MO for the Ventus Northstar by next Monday. Once again, can PM me if you're interested.

Not sure how this works as GX organized last few, but prelim reply will be that pricing should be lower than 3 pack per piece rate ($233, since it's $700 for 3 pcs). I guess Elshan will confirm when we have locked in order size. In any case, beats the 1 or 2 pc rate. :D

I would like to participate in this MO. But my post count is too low to send PMs. Can I?
