Bought a brand new one in late January. Initially was thrilled, BUT -- after 6 weeks a luminescent marker fell off the second hand then a week later the second hand wouldn't return to 12 o'clock -- went to a different place every time I used the bottom pusher! Now it goes back to Omega after having it for less than 2 months and I have to wait for 8 weeks to get it back!!! How monumentally disappointing for an $8,000+ wristwatch, next time I will stick to Breitlimg or Rolex, which have... (read more)

I have the ladies version of this watch and was told that there is no problem if you are allergic to Nickle. I do not have a severe allergy, just to cheap jewellery if worn for more that a couple of days. Every time I wear my watch my allergy flares up around the back of the watch face. I have spoken to Swiss Watches and they have told me there is nothing they can do, I must be allergice to stainless steel.

I had the watch for 1 year, had bought this watch with the impression of a sturdy strong watch supported by big Rand OMEGA. But unfortunatley, the watch is not as strong and sturdy. I had a problem with the date and sent the watch to Omega for correction and was told that the the internal parts are damaged as there was a shock to the watch. In reality the omega team had found a small scratch on the Bezel and pointed the defect to it.The scratch on the bezel was due to a scratch by a sharp... (read more)

I inherited my first Omega watch after my father's sudden death in 1983. It was a World War 2 military issue model which he had saved up for after the war had ended. I loved it from being a youngster and dreamed of one day owning it, which unfortunately came all too soon. So it was with a heavy heart that I wore the watch for a further 26 years but everyone who caught a glimpse of it thought it was a beautiful timepiece and was intrigued by its history. I had the Omega stolen when my home... (read more)

Nice looking watch but disappointing. The band has failed twice resulting in the watch falling to the ground. I can no longer rely on it for any water activities. Secondly, it has never kept good time in spite of being overhauled. Very overrated I think, just a show watch. Owned 11 years. I've passed on any more of their timepieces.... (read more)

I have owned this watch for several years and wear it about 1/3 of the time. When I first got it, the watch kept excellent time. The rotor was so finely balanced that I could sometimes feel it spinning like crazy when I walked down a step and the rotor was on the down swing. Less than a year after I bought it, one of the hands would not reset on the chronograph. I sent it in and they repaired it under warranty. The rotor never felt the same after and I should have made a big deal about... (read more)

My Planet Ocean Seamaster is slightly over 1 year old. It failed completely after 3 days of wear, and was ostensibly replaced. Have been wearing as my everyday watch for about 1 year. During the last month the watch has begun losing large amounts of time over night. Presently back at Omega for warranty repair. This is my first Omega. I own 15 high end mechanical watches, and have never had such an experience. From the string of comments below there is a design flaw which Omega apparently... (read more)

I own an OMEGA Seamaster GMT.
While writing this, it is the THIRD time for repair due to big time deviations and stopping of the watch. Every time I need to 'fight' to get a warranty of 2 years on the repair (the fact that I don't just get it is already a sign that the quality is not that goood... otherwise it should be easy to give this). Three times failure, each time after ~1.5 years of use.
Next to that one time a spontaneous breakage of the wirstband.

I have the automatic Seamaster, which was purchased as a gift for me. The watch never kept perfect time so about 5 years ago I sent it in to have it fixed. $300 later I had a watch that kept decent time. Recently however, the watch started gaining approximately 5 minutese ever couple of days. I called Omega and the said the watch is not under warranty so it will cost a minimum of $500 to repair. $500 to fix? I can buy a Timex for $30 that keeps better time than this Omega! I'm tempted...

Bought my new black dial Omega Seamaster back in April 2009. The Co-Axial revolution really is a revolution. In sharp contrast with all my other mechanical high-end watches, I have NEVER had to adjust the time on this Seamaster, it runs +1 second during the day and -1 second during the night, when it spends time on my nightstand. That makes it more accurate than even many of my quartz watches, and that while it takes a lot of abuse. I not only wear it to the gym and high-stress environments... (read more)

It is really a very unhappy experience to have got a lemon (Ref No. 21230416101001) (Watch No. 90630423) from "OMEGA".

Omega SMP Co-Axial 41mm Black Dial - Oh how I love this watch. Beautifully understated, The weight, feel, design and build quality are impossible to fault. I had read the benefits of the co-axial but the accuracy is stunning; over the 10 days since I got this watch it is pretty much dead on to the second I have not had to alter the watch at all. This is quartz accuracy in a 'real' watch! Combine this with extended warranty and service intervals and the co-axial speaks for itself (read more)

Thoroughly recommend this watch but don't buy in haste - do a bit of old-fashioned bargaining at independent watch retailers (and be prepared to walk away if necessary) as it is highly likely that pricing will come down a lot in 2009-2010.
Regrettable that James Bond has kept pricing artificially high for 6 months.
A watch with a little more sophistication than the Rolex and others due to the fact that the loadsamoney (80's) and Cityboy (90's) tended to avoid it - thank heavens for that.

There are some people selling the old style watch which is model number 2531.80 used for £700-800. Stating the replacement cost is £1600. This is sort of true if you upgrade to the 2220.80. However the 2220.80 comes with the new style movement which is the co-axial. Don't buy a 2531.80 for £700-800. Just go out and buy the 2220.80, believe me it will be worth every penny.
