Omega Watch Repair

Do you own an Omega watch and need to get it repaired? Or are you doing your due diligence and researching the cost of Omega watch repairs before you purchase one?

Omega SA is a Swiss luxury watch brand older than Rolex. This fine watchmaker is based in Switzerland, originally founded by Louis Brandt and La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. The company operated under their initial name, La Generale Watch Co., until they incorporated the name Omega in 1903.

Vintage and modern timepieces from Omega are highly sought after and easily recognized because of their unique colorations. These watches are prized for the fine leather and metal materials used in its craftsmanship. Every unique design is carefully created with the highest quality in mind, making them one of the top choices for a luxury timepiece.

The certified and experienced watch repair specialists at Watch Technicians have been repairing Omega brand watches for years, having seen the best and worst of all watch owners’ mishaps. In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about Omega watch warranties, general care for your Omega watch, and when it’s time to get your watch serviced.

Do Omega Watches Have a Lifetime Warranty?

Omega watches, like many other timepieces, does not guarantee their watches for a lifetime, however, their international warranty protects timepieces purchased from July 1st, 2018, and beyond for up to five years from the purchase date. (1) This is a new warranty policy that has been put in place after a string of other luxury Swiss watchmakers began extending their warranties to five years after the purchase date.

“[Omega] now offers a five-year warranty on all its watches, three years beyond the industry’s standard warranty of two years, which is dictated by European law. It is among several manufacturers who in recent years have been extending their warranties to three, four, and five years, mainly due to the vast technical improvements made in watch manufacturing over the past decade.”

– Carol Besler

Watches purchased with this five-year guarantee are covered for any material and manufacturing defects that exist at the time of purchase. These defects will be resolved free of charge from an authorized service center or Omega boutique as a part of their customer care services.

Once a warranty claim is placed with their customer service center, Omega will cover the costs of any spare parts replacements identified as necessary by an authorized service center, and guarantees that these materials will be replaced with parts with identical or similar characteristics.

This warranty, like many other luxury watch brands, does not cover any typical wear and tear or damage caused by negligence while wearing the timepiece. This means that any damages caused by typical wear or the environment will not be covered under their five-year warranty. Likewise, the manufacturing defects warranty will be voided if any repair work is carried out by an unauthorized repair center

WHY HAVE YOUR OMEGA WATCH REPAIR PERFORMED?

Omega brand luxury timepieces are known for their accuracy, surpassing Rolex, and other popular Swiss brands that are well-known for their quality and accuracy in telling the time.

Omega watch repairs are made most often when a watch is visibly broken, whether the timepiece stops, if the face shatters, or if water gets into the internal mechanisms. Fortunately, you do no need to wait until something is wrong to have the watch inspected for any issues.

An authorized Omega watch repair specialist can disassemble the watch and carefully check the gear, facing, dials, and case to ensure there is no problem with the watch. (2) This will not only give you a heads up on any potential repairs before they happen, but it can also help you keep tabs on the wear and tear the watch undergoes on a regular basis.

“Your OMEGA watch was conceived to stand the test of time. It will accompany you through life and continue to give you the time with beauty and precision if it regularly receives the best care.”

– Omega Watches

Normal wear, aging gaskets, and shock from accidental bumps and jostling can all affect the internal workings of a watch, no matter the quality and brand. Regularly bringing your Omega watch into a repair center for diagnostics is ideal to keep the watch in prime working order.

How Often Does an Omega Watch Need Repair?

It is recommended that most Omega watches are serviced once a year to ensure the watch has retained its water resistance, but full-service checks should only need to be performed every 5 to 8 years unless the watch is not functioning properly. During this full-service repair, the gear mechanisms should be oiled and lubricated, and all seals and gaskets replaced to ensure they remain water-resistant.

Signs that your Omega watch repair is due is if the watch begins to tick unevenly, or with a jerk to each movement. The hands should always have a smooth motion when ticking, never jerky or delayed.

Over time, the internal gears may also degrade slightly, and the casing may wear down, causing the watch to lose time. If you notice moisture or bubbling under the glass face, this is a sign that the watch has accumulated moisture inside, and the water resistance has worn down somewhere within the watch casing. These issues should all be addressed during a full-service Omega watch repair.

General Care for an Omega Watch (150 words)

 

An Omega watch may be preserved in near-pristine condition under light wear if the general care steps are followed regularly. These are care practices that you can perform without bringing it into an Omega watch repair center.

 

Crown Tightening

After manually winding your Omega watch, you should always ensure that the crown is tightened and flush with the casing. This helps prevent any moisture from entering the internal workings of the watch and creates a seal around the casing.

 

Gentle Cleaning

For Omega watches that have metal bracelets and water-resistant cases, you should use a soft-bristle toothbrush and warm soapy water to gently clean away any dirt and grime that has accumulated on your watch. Using a soft, microfiber cloth is best to dry the watch afterward.

 

Automatic Preservation

Omega watches have a self-winding mechanism that depends on the wrist movements during wear. Watches that have not been worn for several days may lose time and require manual winding to resume winding automatically.

 

Avoid Contact With…

To avoid unnecessary Omega watch repairs, you should avoid coming in direct contact with any solvents, detergents, perfumes, cosmetics, or other chemical products that may damage the case or the gaskets. Any watch that does come in direct contact with these substances should be immediately washed and cleaned with a soft-bristle toothbrush. This includes leather cleaners for watches with leather straps.

If you swim in the sea, or if the watch comes in direct contact with salt water, it should be rinsed in warm tap water afterward and dried with a microfiber cloth.

Watches with soft leather straps will need to avoid contact with water or excessive moisture to prevent discoloration in the straps. Leather straps should also avoid contact with direct sunlight, grease, or cosmetic products to prevent fading and discoloration.

How Much Does Omega Watch Repair Cost?

To determine how much Omega watch repair will cost, you should first consider the age and condition of the watch. All prices will vary depending on these factors, and whether the watch is quartz or mechanical.

Prices to service an Omega watch from an authorized Omega repair center often range anywhere from $400 to $900. For significant repairs that require replacement parts or restoration, this price can rise even higher depending on the extent of the damage.

An authorized Omega watch repair specialist will need to diagnose the problem affecting your watch and determine if any additional or underlying problems exist before beginning work on the timepiece. After the diagnosis is done, your repair center will give you a quote for the total repair cost and an itemized list of the affected areas of the watch.

How Long Do Omega Watches Last?

Omega watches can last for a lifetime if they are properly cared for and maintained. Careful maintenance, replacement of any worn parts, and proper lubrication of internal mechanisms will keep your timepiece working like new for many years to come. Every Omega watch should be checked for water resistance on an annual basis and brought to a repair center if there are any concerns with the functionality of the piece.

A consideration to make for watch owners who are looking to keep their timepieces for many years to come is that Omega only guarantees repairs and the delivery of spare parts for 20 years after the production of the watch model is discontinued. Vintage Omega watches may be difficult to restore if replacement parts are necessary.

It is important that any work done on an Omega watch is performed by an authorized repair center or else any warranties and replacement parts may be voided by the manufacturer.
