The Omega watch company have been in existence since 1848 and have built up a very fine reputation throughout the world for high quality watches.
Some of the history of the Omega watch includes:
Today watches are not only an item to be worn for the practical purpose of telling the time but they have become so much more than that. Quality watches are now a fashion accessory and are now regarded as a status symbol giving some perceived indication of the wearer’s style and wealth.
The watch brands, models, material used in the construction, exclusivity of the watch, reputation, age and the movement all contribute to establishing if a watch will appreciate in value in the coming years.
Throughout Omega’s watch making history, their main competitor has been Rolex and although Rolex watches are highly desirable and collectable, they generally have a different set of clients; maybe younger with a not so ostentatious look. Omega has in the last 50 years focused a huge amount of its attention on the branding and marketing of their watches using high profile celebrities to promote their watches worldwide.
Omega is, without a doubt, a very fine luxury watch brand that originated in Switzerland and is now owned by Swatch. Their watches are highly regarded in the watch and collectors market place and if you are sensible with your choice after doing some research, then you will have a purchased a luxury watch that will appreciate in value year on year.
Omega watches are a well-respected and high quality stylish timepiece brand that over the years has moved with the times developing its range but not compromising in anyway on its quality and desirability.
In order for the purchase of an Omega watch to be a sound investment, it is important to understand that if you are purchasing a new watch from a retail showroom, the value of the watch will disintegrate immediately. This is not a poor reflection on Omega watches but it is just the norm on generally all watch sales. Vintage watches are where you will earn your money. Firstly before you purchase a vintage Omega watch, do your research. An original vintage Omega watch is what all self-respecting watch collectors are looking for. Along with the watches original box and papers and the watch being in good condition. These are all the hallmarks of a solid investment.
Here at Watches of Westminster, we specialise in Vintage watches of all brands and have a number of vintage Omegas for sale. Feel free to browse our second hand and vintage watch sales page and if you have a watch to sell or Part Exchange just get in contact.

We specialise in buying vintage watches that are in need of some TLC. so if you have a broken vintage watch please let us know.
A broken vintage watch has often been left in the back of a drawer or handed down through the family but have not been serviced for many years or are in need of repair.
Sometimes these watches do make it to the local repair shop who can’t repair them ( watchmaking is a dying art ) or they ( the so called watch repairers ) simply want to send them away for a very expensive overhaul. This can often cost as much as the watch is worth and quite often the watches value is ruined by the original hands or dial being changed ( DONT DO IT !! ).
We are happy to look at any interesting or high end vintage watch you have in any condition even if not running as we love rescuing once great time pieces and giving them a new home.
We can also look at your old watch and PX it against one of our more modern watches or even a newly serviced vintage watch. Theres nothing we won’t consider. Just contact us via the web site or even call us on 07768316371 and ask for Simon.
This is an interesting watch I recently bought from my watchmaker ( he is great at vintage watch repairs ) ! he had to change the glass and free up the bezel but other than that its now become my daily wearer and is in effect a rescued broken vintage watch. Yes even quartz watches can be vintage and asI forget to wind my watches up wearing this watch is not a problem.
Not all broken vintage watches can be repaired as many of the parts are not available ( Rolex will not stock or sell parts ) so its often a waiting game until the parts come up normally on Ebay.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE COSTS OF VINTAGE WATCH REPAIR ?
Watches Of Westminster is now offering a postal service for the servicing and repair of all watches including high end brands especially vintage models that are often shunned by high street shops as too tricky to work on.
You may be considering vintage watch repair or just selling it. To get the best price let us buy it as is and we can repair it .
Even Rolex service centres will not tackle older models !!
We charge a reasonable rate depending on the work needed and will provide you with a estimate of costs prior to any work being carried out and will not carry out any extra work without your approval. You can send the watch direct to our skilled watchmaker who will evaluate the watch and give you a price for repair /service.
Please contact us via the contact page or call us on 07768316371
Alternatively if your watch is not running and you simply want to sell it please let us know and we can have a chat about about inspection and purchase. Vintage watch repair can be very expensive given the lack of spare parts.
We have been employing our watchmaker for 4 years now and are amazed at what he can do with watches !
The price for a standard service of a non chronograph manual wind watch is £150 and does not include replacement parts if needed or return postage. Obviously a battery change is much less but every watch is treated on a individual basis and our quote form will allow you to tailor the work you want done.
