Omega Seamaster 200m Omegamatic X2!


Recommended Posts


I`d heard the capacitors don`t last for long


This is a rather "embroidered" urban myth...there were failures, but nothing like as many as some would have you believe.

I have had 10 or 11 kinetics (including one of the very early AGS models) and not one has given a problem.....in fact, the only watch that ever had to be returned to the maker was a Speedie.

But I suppose Seiko have the knowhow to produce progressive technology whereas, by comparison, Omega plod along with the same outdated range, or buy in progress from George Daniels.

Totally agree, I purchased the black Omegamatic in 98, still going strong today 2013!

Nice watches, nice to own a couple of the more unusual models & movement.

I have the Seiko equivalent, the Premier Kinetic Perpetual.


So far my'n still works fine, but I have read tales of the capacitor failing & needing replacement on both the Omega's & Seiko's.

Fingers crossed ours continue to work.

Thanks for sharing your Omega's :-)
