Armstrong Watch Repair specialise in the servicing and restoration of vintage Omega watches (1940s to 1970s) and offer competitively priced servicing with a number of extras to ensure your vintage Omega keeps working and looking as good as it can for as long as possible. We also service some Omega modern calibres such as the modern Seamaster Professional as well as quartz models. Please note we cannot service 'F300' electronic models or any watch with 'Co-Axial' Movements.
In addition to basic servicing we offer, crystal polishing and replacement, case/ bracelet polishing and refinishing, and stem and crown replacement. As well as Omega we also work on other prestige Swiss makes, please ask for a quote. We treat the requirements of each Omega watch individually and only provide a firm quote once we have inspected your watch and understood the work required. This ensures you get no nasty surprises when you receive the bill! and also ensures you don't waste your money if the watch is not economic to repair or service. In these cases we just charge an inspection and return fee to return the watch to you. Because we carry the work ourselves in house, you can specify your requirements directly with us and we are also happy to pass on additional information about the watch such as case and movement numbers, or take pictures of the movement.
Servicing includes strip down of the movement, machine cleaning with approved L&R fluids and inspection of parts, oiling using high grade Moebius synthetic oils, reassembly and setting up of rate and beat on an electronic timing machine. Waterproof seal replacement, pressure testing, and case polishing are not included unless otherwise stated. A detailed price estimate is provided on inspection but for budget purposes:
Please note that we don't routinely replace seals or carry out pressure testing on vintage pieces as we consider these to be NOT waterproof. Case polishing is also not included in the basic servicing cost.

Due to restrictive parts supply practices from the major Swiss watch houses towards independent repairers, we will not be able to obtain genuine parts for some movements or cases, especially so in the case of Rolex and Omega. Service items (crystals, crowns and mainsprings etc.) are generally still available but genuine OE items are increasingly unobtainable. As many parts are now obsolete for vintage watches we often won't be able to replace worn parts and may need to advise on donor part options. We will advise on options after inspection.
