Omega Watch Repair and Service Specialist
At JON, we've been repairing luxury timepieces to the utmost industry standard since 1987, guaranteeing that your Omega watch will be exceptionally restored and back to your treasured collection.
Of course, we use only genuine Omega parts in all of our work, putting in painstaking care to ensure no resource is spent on a less-than-worthy repair.
We respect time – and to ensure your Omega watch is restored properly and efficiently, we entrust a postal service that brings an expert watchmaker to you, no matter where you are in the UK.
What is involved in an Omega Watch Service?
The watch is broken down and the movement is removed from the case. The bracelet, case, seals and movement are inspected thoroughly to diagnose any issues. We strip the whole movement and the case components.
Every part inside the watch is inspected for wear and anything showing the slightest sign of deterioration is removed and replaced with new parts from the manufacturer. Tolerances inside watches are so fine that even the smallest defect can affect performance.
Once inspected all parts are then put through our ultrasonic cleaner with specialist fluids, which removed old grease from the parts.
After it goes through the cleaning agent and three rinsing agents, it is put through a drying process resulting in a completely clean movement ready for re-assembly and lubricating.
We assemble the movement and fit the dial and hands assuring everything are aligned and then time test the watch to assure it is performing accurately.
6. PRESSURE TEST
The case is reassembled so it is now a watertight empty case. We then pressure test it to the required bar to ensure there are no leaks.
We then move on to the case and bracelet (if the watch has one) which is cleaned and refurbished. We use various polishing, cutting and grinding wheels to remove any small dents, scratches and imperfections where possible, brining the watch as close to new condition as possible.
8. FINAL TESTING
Watch is reassembled and time tested for the second time and placed on test for 2-3 days on our workshop simulator which slowly moves the watch round in different positions. This allows us to monitor the watches performance and see if any further adjustments are required.
Omega Seamaster had a hard life never of my wrist in sixteen years and i was a chainsaw operator. repaired by Jon Vincent now keeps better time than when new
Above and beyond service. JVM really excelled themselves from the neat packaging they send you to put your pride and joy in and send it back. The attention to detail displayed was superb, the watch came back looking like new, the strap, the face looked perfect and added to that they send you the parts they had replaced as part of the service which demonstrates transparency and generates trust. Highly recomended!!
Good old fashioned service. Friendly, quick and personal service that is as accurate as the finest chronometer.
Your Omega watch must always be diagnostically inspected first to produce an accurate repair quotation, this allows the watchmaker to find out exactly what issues need addressed and price any parts accordingly. However most repairs are covered in a full Omega watch service price which varies depending on model.
The price is made up of the master watchmaker’s time in servicing the watch (which can take up to 4 hours) and the cost of any parts required to restore performance.
If you are being offered a service for cheaper it would be advisable to proceed with caution. It may be generic parts that are being used in your repair resulting in your watch losing its worth and running into similar problems in the near future.
The old adage holds true for luxury watch ownership, buy cheap, buy twice. Having your watch maintained by an official service centre will ensure your Omega watch lasts long into the future and retains its value.
The History of Omega
Characterised by immaculate design, pioneering spirit, and sterling quality – OMEGA has established itself as one of the very best watchmaking brands in the world, setting new standards in horological excellence.
Since its early beginnings in 1848, when Louis Brandt, a descendant from a watchmaking family opened a small shop in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland, the brand had numerously reconfigured itself before it became known under its iconic name – OMEGA.
The business was first registered in 1877 under Louis Brandt et Fils. Following the death of its owner, it was bequeathed to his sons Louis-Paul and Cesar who subsequently relocated the company to Bienne.
The brothers abandoned the original workshop method of comptoir d’établissage – a manner of assembling watches from separately bought specialist parts, in favour of a modernised system of pure manufacture. This resulted in a dramatic increase of sales, transforming the company into one of the largest factories in Switzerland. In effect, they produced close to 100,000 watches a year.
This anticipated an important milestone in the history of watchmaking – the creation of the first minute-repeating wristwatch in 1892. By 1900 OMEGA commercialised the wristwatch, becoming the first brand to do so.
In 1903, after the death of both owners, the company entered the hands of six direct descendants and became registered as Louis Brandt et Freres – Omega Watch Co. Rumour has it, that the name, being the last letter of the Greek alphabet and the symbol of ultimate achievement, sought to coincide with the company’s ambition of becoming the very last word in watchmaking.
Modernisation and rapid expansion allowed OMEGA to truly exceed in the field. By 1909 OMEGA watches were being sold all around the world, with distribution on six continents.
Its growing reputation and constant pursuit of perfection, established it as synonymous with meticulous precision. It is exactly for this reason, that in 1932 OMEGA assumed the role as the Official Timekeeper to the Los Angeles 1932 Olympic Games. Never before has a single brand been entrusted with the timing of every Olympic sport.
This outstanding performance and reliability guaranteed its role as the largest watch supplier for the armed forces of Great Britain in 1940. Thanks to technological progress developed by OMEGA watchmakers, these robust timepieces were water-resistant, shock-proof, and anti-magnetic.
Growing out of the tradition of exceptional durability, 1948 witnessed the rise of the Seamaster which coincided with the brand’s 100th anniversary. This being the oldest line in the OMEGA collection, it maintains a timeless design while featuring a remarkably sturdy casing. It is the most versatile model amongst the OMEGA watch collection, suitable for town as well as country.
In 1952 the company introduced the Constellation line, which soon became known as the ‘Swiss Watch’. Proclaimed synonymous with luxury and horological excellence, Constellation remains OMEGA’s most popular and publicised brand. Named after a group of stars, it is available as an automatic chronometer as well as quartz.
Following the launch of the Constellation line, in 1955 OMEGA introduced the Ladymatic – a model that became one of the world’s most popular automatic chronometers for women. In 2010, the company revived the name for a new line of watches which successfully unify horological precision with unparalleled aesthetic sophistication, thus making it one of the very best women’s timepieces on the market.
A giant leap in watchmaking occurred in 1957 with the introduction of the ‘Moonwatch’ – OMEGA’s famous Speedmaster, which became the official watch used by Apollo flight crews. Deemed ‘qualified for all manned space missions’, the Speedmaster accompanied Neil Armstrong on the 21st of July 1969 during his lunar landing.
Staying true to its remarkable heritage, OMEGA remains a leading watchmaking brand by maintaining its avant-garde approach, and setting new standards of excellence. In 2013, the brand introduced Co-Axial technology employed by the Swiss chairman Nicholas G. Hayek, after acquiring the rights from inventor George Daniels. This resulted in the launch of the Master Co-Axial calibres – the most advanced mechanical watch movement, resistant to magnetic forces greater than 15,000 gauss.
As a consistent pioneer in the field, OMEGA continues to combine unparalleled durability with trend-setting aesthetics, making it a distinguished expert in the art of horology. Unsurprisingly therefore, the brand has been a favourite amongst prominent individuals including world leaders such as John F. Kennedy, music icons like Elvis Presley, and even secret agents such as 007, who’s been associated with the brand since 1995.
Keeping in mind this extraordinary legacy, each OMEGA timepiece is a proud testimony to the brand’s reputation, guaranteeing irresistible splendour to its possessor.
