    Default $2500 price tag for Servicing Omega at Swatch Group

    Dear Friends at SG-roc. I am a rolex and Omega enthusiast like many of you.

    Recently sent my Omega Speedmaster Moonphase for servicing at Swatch Group at a cost of $2500.

    Apparently, the moonphase disc had corrosion and i opted for it to be changed. The cost of the disc is astronomical(no pun intended) at $1200. The rest of the servicing was decent at about $1200 as a new dial and all hands and crowns were changed.

    I was pleasantly surprised when Swatch Grp even returned me 3 boxed of parts..including some complete bridge assemblies. Really cool.

    Other than the cost..the watch looks really good now. I also noticed that the bracelet links have been noticeably tightened..which was great. As good as new now...

    If you are keen..here is a link to the video i created. Enjoy!

    Steep price in total. But considering the number of parts changed and given back to you, it's kinda value compared to 2k for basic servicing at some other brands.

    nice video.

    Did not expect that the dial and moon disk would rust or corrode, thanks for the interesting video bro.

    How old is your Speedmaster Moonphase? Have you serviced it before?

    Hiya Fellow Bros,

    Watch is relatively old..about 7-8 years without service. I am quite perplexed as well as to why the moon disc corroded. Since I am a sucker for 'perfection' for my watches..i couldnt stand seeing the disc with corrosion on it. Thus I pulled the trigger to get it changed. Well..at least it looks perfect now. Haha.

    Cheers to all bros.
