My Omega Seamaster is due for a servicing too, and I am dreading it. Here in NZ there is only one agent authorised to do the work, it's in the South Island, and the quote is over NZ$1200.



That’s 870 quid, Dave! Bloody hell!

Not cheaper to send it to a trustworthy party in the U.K. and gave it done here?

Oh thanks, I was hoping someone would give me permission shakeshout
In fact I'll keep both of them as they keep going up in value.

I'm looking for a Tudor Submariner, full size not the Mini-Sub and not the latest type. I had one in the 90's but traded it in for a GMT Master and wish now I had kept it.
Prefer it to have box and paper but not essential.
I will pay true value but not silly ebay prices.


I'm still looking and will consider 36mm 75090/75190 or 40mm 79090/79190 or even the older ones. I am also now interested in newer Black Bay models. Try me.

Bought one these recently £13 from China incl. postage :-) They copied the Rolex Submariner. Its self wind mechanical very well made, don't think it would be very waterproof at the same depth as the Rolex though, very accurate, it's amazing and looks the part. leave you more money for shooting.

I see they are up to £17 now....

Pfft 25 years? Youngster. My grandfather's (now mine) war watch (Rolex) saw service in the Western Desert, Tunisia, Sicily, and Italy and just keeps on ticking. Didn't cost a penny either - he pinched it off a wrecked radio set and had it set into a leather wristlet. Service was £60.

I've been robbed...!!! This one cost £90 posted.

A Seiko 24 jewel movement, allegedly, and it is certainly waterproof.

Invicta not too bad actually for a 'tool' watch. Homage watches are very popular especially with swiss movements.

Would you please post a picture? My military collection consist of a 1942 Omega, 1970's CWC and a 1970's Hamilton (they look very similar), which I wear when I am having a change of watches. Also have an old(ish) Rolex Sea Dweller (666 movement) and old(ish) Heuer Carrera (no reference number on the back of the case), however I am now reluctant to wear the Rolex after its recent service and fix (£750!) and the Heuer is now the general wear watch.

Also, horology seems to be an interest on this site, what about a "show your watches" thread? Admin, would this is OK, and if so which forum?

I got it wrong the wife informs me the bill was actually £396.00. But I don't care it looks like new and works perfectly and Omega warrants it for two years and the watch is certainly worth a lot more than £396.00.

Alpha 1, thanks for the reply, but I was interested in a picture of Dark Skies military Rolex.
