    Has anyone sent their watch in for a "spa" treatment ?

    I've got an Omega Seamaster GMT that i'm thinking about sending in to Nesbit's for a refurbishing. Just wondering if anyone else has sent their watches in or used this vendor before. I'm excited about the thought of having it like new again but am bummed about being without it for 3-4 weeks. I've got another older Seamaster 120m that I can wear but it just isn't the same ...

    I'm supposed to send in my breitling every couple years for service. Costs like 500-800 dollars though. ouch! Is that something you need to send to the company or can you use an "aftermarket" watchmaker for stuff like that?
    Man I wish I had something witty and inspiring to say. Or even a URL to share.

    Ive sent my citizen watch in for an overhaul and they lubed up all the moving parts and buffed out all the scratches, I practically had a brand new watch, but the bad thing was the price, I paid $150 for a now $400 watch, and if you do sent it to a authorized place you keep the warranty if it still has warranty. On some watches its worth it on anothers its worth to just buy a new one.

    I sent my Omega Sea Master to Watch repair dot net, Jeff did an excellent job and returned it quickly. Watch came back looking new and running perfectly. That was at least two years ago, I think he'll be getting my wife's Rolex pretty soon.

    I should be getting it back in the next day or two. I will post my opinion on it. It is costly though, $400 to be exact. As far as how often a watch should be sent in.. I guess that is up to the individual, and how it is taken care of.

    Mine was $400.00 or even a bit more. I held off sending it until it quit running! I had an Omega GMT, really liked that watch, hope it comes back like new.

    With shipping it was like $430 or so, and what I sent was an Omega GMT 2534.50 It was still running but was showing some signs of needed some attention.

    Finally got around to getting some pictures. I liked the service , they were fast and proffesional but it seemed a little pricey. I guess it is what it is.
    They re lubricated the internals, replaced some pins in the bracelet , polished everything and changed two o rings.

    Thanks for the pictures, looks great. Did they do the main spring? When mine was serviced they told me it needed replacing, it added $$ to the original quote.
