Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Hello all,

    Prior to rushing down to this sale perhaps you will take a moment to read this. My name is Saud Hashmi and I am an officer in the United States Merchant Marines residing in NYC,

    recently I went on vacation to St. Martin and while there, purchased an Omega Planet Ocean. Upon my return a few

    days later, 5 to be precise, I was performing my duties aboard a coastwise oil tanker when I noticed the watch had lost a few minutes,

    ( it’s an automatic ). I applied the correction and went back to work, a second later I heard a distinct metallic clink

    and looked down, (fortunately at the time I was doing chart corrections over a chart table) there on the table was the

    crown to the date/time adjustment! You can imagine my consternation at witnessing the failure of a new $3,106.00

    time piece! I immediately contacted Omega’s service center which asked me to send the watch in for repairs. I

    explained that I had no interests in a repaired Omega, rather in my opinion I felt the only satisfactory recourse would

    be the replacement of the timepiece. That call led me to Omega N.A. headquarters in N.J. to which I payed a

    personal visit upon my return home. The V.P. of C.S. greeted me and took the time to listen to my concerns,

    her name is Janine and is truly a testament to professionalism and courtesy. Upon the conclusion of our meeting

    I surrendered my watch and left feeling somewhat relieved that Omega being a luxury goods purveyor would

    do everything it could to assure its customers satisfaction. Unfortunately that was not to be the case, Janine got

    back to me today and informed me that in fact Omega was not replacing my watch but rather, repairing it.

    I can’t begin to convey my dismay at this decision. You see the watch to me is an instrument, not a cosmetic piece of jewelry. I can’t understand how Omega can claim a proud tradition of seaworthy chronographs and then deny the replacement of a failed piece. Especially to a consumer who earns his living in that precise environment! How can I trust my life during a mixed gas dive to an instrument that failed in a single atmosphere while doing nautical chart corrections?!

    My question to you is this, have you ever heard of anyone getting their watch replaced? and if so what avenues did

    they pursue to accomplish this? I am currently attempting to secure a meeting with the president of Omega N.A. and

    hope to speak with him before departing for sea next Wed. I will update you as to how that turns out. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    sincerely,
    Saud

  2. Saud, I do not work for Swatch group, but did run a jewelry/timepiece repair center for a competitor. I have purchased multiple timepieces from the sale spoken about above in past years. More than one has been an Omega, two watches have been gifted to 13 year old boys. All are still in perfect working order.
    The sale above is direct from the manufacturer, your timepiece was purchased from a retailer in St. Martin (out of the manufacturers control). Any timepiece company would require you to send a timepiece in for repair regardless of the age it was owned, if you wanted an exchange you would have to deal with the retailer you purchased from. It is necessary to inspect a broken timepiece to determine if it is do to damage or defect.
    In regards to a replacement watch: all timepiece manufactures will be reluctant to replace a new watch. A worn timepiece must be considered refurbished to be resold. A company can completely replace the movement with a new one and the timepiece would still be considered a refurb. Automatic movements are made to be be repaired, unlike quartz movements which are
    replaced at the drop of a hat by repair centers. It is highly possibly that your timepiece has a brand new movement in the now worn case. Swatch group is known for having a quality group of horologists and so either way your timepiece should be perfect. An automatic time piece should be sent in every two years for cleaning and oiling.
    I would recommend to anyone to buy an Omega, I am not kind to mine and it works great. I personally would not recommend purchasing a high end timepiece from a retailer that you can not easily return to. You do not know how they have handled their product or how long they have had it, and if there is an issue you are stuck with it.
