  1. Same here. Born in ‘57 too so an original Speedmaster is well out of the question. On my 60th a few years ago, I settled for a Speedmaster ‘57.
  2. Just an update. Well, it had settled down to a 'regular' -10s per day. Today, a postage paid, insured, padded package arrived from Omega. I completed the form and included my warranty card. I stated that it was losing between 10 and 16 seconds per day and I’ve always had great trouble turning the bezel but as I’m not a diver it didn’t bother me too much but as it was going back, I mentioned it on the form. I removed the strap and found that the bezel turned as smooth as silk. I then realised that by grasping the bezel at 6 and 12 o’clock and lifting slightly it turned smoothly. Oops! Been doing it wrong since I’ve had it, trying to turn it by holding it at 9 and 3 and pinching the case!
  3. Thanks Cyclops Update: A few days ago I competed a contact form on the Omega website and I just received this reply. At least if lockdown goes on past June when my warranty expires, I’ve registered my fault. Hi Steven, Thank you for your email and I hope you are well? You can send your OMEGA watch direct to our service centre for examination. If you would like me to arrange pre-paid fully insured packaging for you, please provide the address you would like this sent to along with a convenient daytime contact number. Please be aware that as our offices are currently closed due to Covid-19, this will not be despatched until we have reopened. Kind Regards James Gilbert Customer Service Advisor The Swatch Group (UK) Limited
  4. I’ve asked this on the Omega forum but not had a response so far so I’ll ask it here: I have a SMPc 300M diver that I bought new in 2018. The warranty card is dated 06/2018. When I first got it it was running 1-2 seconds fast per day which wasn't a problem as I could just pull the crown out for a second or two, push it back in and job done. Lately though, it’s running approximately 14-15 seconds per day slow. I’m sure that must be outside the accuracy limits.A couple of questions: what should the accuracy be on this watch and how would I go about getting it looked at being as all the dealers/boutiques are closed due to lockdown?
  5. He’s back on now and still wearing it. I think it’s this one. Just wish he'd keep his flipping arm still.
  6. .....on Daily kitchen live on BBC1 right now? Is it an Omega?
  7. Here’s mine with a standard Omega spring bar for comparison. Perhaps I need a set of those pliers.
  8. That’s what I have. Just too big to go in this bracelet though.
  9. ..for the bracelet on my wife’s watch? It’s a Longines Master 25mm and it needs a proper clean in my ultrasonic cleaner as it keeps leaving big oily marks on her wrist! I have a strap removal tool (I think it’s Bergeon 6767) and have changed many straps/bracelets on my watches but it’s just too big for this watch. I tried dangling the strap in the ultrasonic cleaner as deep as I could and it cleaned it well - apart from the very end links around the spring bar area which is where the marks are coming from. Any idea's?
  10. It’s a genuine 20mm Omega strap tapering to 18mm with an Omega deployant clasp. I have an Omega nato as well as the original bracelet. I’ve never had a springbar come out. As someone else has said, it could be that the backpack strap caught it as I swung it on my back.
  11. Lucky, lucky, lucky day for me today. I was over Westfield Stratford collecting a new pair of boots that had been changed under warranty and I popped in Waitrose to get a few bits - pasta and rice etc. Anyway, I paid for them at the self service checkout, put them in my backpack and went to leave. As I did, the security guard blocked my way and stopped me. "Look sir", he said and pointed to the checkout I was on. My bloody SMPc 300 was on it!!! The spring bar had come out of the head and it had dropped off. Luckily just outside the store was the Omega boutique and they fitted it back together for me. Strap was new at Christmas and it’s a genuine Omega strap too with new spring bars. Excuse the poor quality picture.
  12. I use the Watchville app on my iPad. It has some countdown pips from 55 seconds on so you can look at your watch while listening to the pips.
  13. I was over Westfield Stratford today and noticed that there wasn’t a single watch on display at the Rolex store. I thought that was strange so I took a picture. On closer inspection, there was a sign on the door saying that Watches of Switzerland were taking over the store.
