I am an authorized repair center for Omega watches, and can acquire almost any genuine part for Omega watches - from case parts, to crystals, bezels, and bands. If your watch is still under warranty from Omega, you should send it to Omega for repair.

A Very Rough Price Guide

The prices that follow are only a very rough guide. When I have your watch in for repair, I will give a firm estimate after I have examined your watch.

For a newer watch, generally less than ten years old, that does not have a day or date mechanism, is not a chronograph, and only tells time, cleaning and oiling starts at about $280.00.

For watches older than ten years, cleaning and oiling generally starts at $420.00. I work with you, the customer, as to what repairs you would like to have done.

Overhauling a chronograph watch (cleaned and oiled, and adjusted) starts at about $340.00

If you are sending your watch for a battery installation only, the cost is $24.00.

I provide a one year no-quibble warranty on all repair work.

Hello Stephen.

I picked the watch up from the post office on Monday. It looks great and is running great. It needed a lot of work and parts that were difficult to find. But hey, I'm 50 now myself and I can relate.

Thank you for sticking with the project and for being such a straight shooter. I'd recommend you to anyone.

I just wanted to tell you again how pleased I am with my Omega.   I set the time on the 13th, matching it with the online NBS clock and checking it a week later, the Omega is only a couple of seconds fast.   Iâ™ve never had it run as accurate as it is now.   You really nailed it!


Do you think that changing out the main spring was a contributing factor in this improvement?   Or perhaps in conjunction with the other things you did?   I am simply amazed at the accuracy.   Iâ™m getting better than COSC accuracy (-4/+6 sec/day) on a non-COSC mechanical movement.



Good morning Stephen - 

Just a quick e-mail to let you know how pleased I am with the service you performed on my Speedmaster! I've been wearing it daily for the past couple of weeks and still can't stop staring at it!

Thanks again,

Thanks again for repairing my father's cherished 1960 Omega Seamaster Deville. I did not want to trust its repairs to a nameless technician at some "service center". Based on past experience, I knew that the watch would be correctly and expertly repaired for a very fair price.

In a world filled with indifferent service providers, it is always a delight to do business with a man of integrity and quiet professionalism. Well done!

Dear Stephen,

Earlier in the week I received the watch.

I am very pleased with the overall work with the watch, and I recognize that not any watchmaker works with chronographs. The before and after condition is incredible reason why I'm including a photo.

Thank you for the time and care invested in this watch. You just have earned another loyal customer.

Please add this to your Omega Testimonial file:

I inherited my Omega Seamaster from my father, who had purchased it in 1953.

Unfortunately, on a recent vacation I dropped and it struck the floor on the crown, after

which it was impossible to set the watch. I was quoted an absurd price for repairs by

Omega, so I went online and found Quality Watch Repair. Steve makes the entire repair

process simple, quick, and very fairly priced. The watch is back on my wrist as I write,

and it’s running perfectly. In a perfect world, all businesses would give this kind of

customer service. The world isn’t perfect, but QWR is doing its part. It’s been a

pleasure to deal with them.

I returned home from an overseas trip 2 weeks ago to find a notice from the postal

service that they had a package from you containing my watch.  I was able to retrieve it

the next day and I have been wearing it ever since.

The watch is performing well and looks wonderful.  While no watch can ever be made to

look and feel new after 42 years of nearly constant wear, my Omega looks terrific.  You

have done a great service to my Old Friend and I am indebted to you for bringing her back

to life again.  

When my favorite sister gave me this watch as my college graduation gift all those many

years ago I thought I valued it very much.  Now it seems all the more wonderful.  

Thank you for doing such a great job on repairing my most treasured piece of jewelry.  I

will be happy to provide you with testimonials or references should you want them.  You

I can’t begin to thank you for promptness and the wonderful work you did in repairing my Omega Constellation Megaquartz and returning it to me in running condition. As I told   you when I first sent the watch to you to be checked out, the watch had been in my wife’s jewelry case for over 30 years because of a broken watchband.

Hi, Stephen,


I received my husbands watch yesterday via registered USPS mail. I will admit to some nervousness as I opened the box, this being my first experience with repairing the watch and with YOU! My Swiss husband at my side, we, together, sat stunned and incredulous at the quality of the restoration of his watch. If you remember, this watch was given to my husband by his, now deceased mother, on the occasion of his Matura in Zuerich, Switzerland. That was 30 years ago. The watch was deemed to be at the practical end of its life by the Swiss watchmakers who my husband consulted when the watch failed mechanically. Being a (typically tenacious?) American, I asked my husband for permission to bring the watch back to NY with me when I left Zuerich in February. I felt that, if there were any hope for tender loving care of this sentimental timepiece and, perhaps, a bit of luck, it would be in the States where second hand or recycled or left-to-die goods are more often than not still valued and deemed worthy of a second (or third or tenth) chance.

Every step of this transaction with you, Stephen, from the advice, the service, the communication, the timeliness of the work to the ultimate quality of the result has been quientessentially professional. I could not be happier! Parenthetically, it is also a delight that my husband is having to admit that there are (still?) things that just work better in the U.S. . . .! This, from a pretty critical Swiss! Kudos to you, Stephen!


In closing, thank you again for putting a 30 year watch back on a 50 year old wrist . . .and the watch looks brand new (even if the man and his wife donâ™t . . .!).

As I mentioned tonight, my Omega Speedmaster needed repair and I could not find a

local who could work on the watch. Searching net web I found Quality Watch Repair and

after some serious  thought I sent my watch which has been my steady companion for over

45 years. My Speed Master did not walk on the Moon but was given to me by one who did and

I treasure it and someday hope my son does too. Anyway, I sent the watch and crossed my

fingers. The transaction went EXACTLY as they said. The cost was as they said and a real

bargain. The quality of the repair was excellent.... The watch never worked better nor

looked better. If your Omega needs work, I would highly recommend Quality Watch Repair at



I just wanted to thank you.  My Omega looks amazing and is running

Subject: Re: Omega Seamaster Watch Repair


The watch arrived safely and for a 60 year old watch, it looks brand
new! I appreciate the manner in which you do business. You emailed me
as soon as you received the watch, you diagnosed the problem in a couple
of days and gave me an estimate of the cost of the essential repairs.
You also suggested some other things that could be done such as
replacing the crystal, the crown and a complete cleaning, but did not
try to "sell me" on those services.

Your promptness, professionalism and honesty were greatly appreciated
and it has been a pleasure doing business with you. If, in the future,
my watch is again in need of repairs, I will certainly send it to you
for service.

Thanks again for a job well done!

Hello Mr Thomas,

I wanted to let you know I received my Omega watch
back a few days ago. It looks and works great.
I've been tracking its accuracy and estimate it's now
gaining only 1-3 seconds per day. This outcome is
most impressive and beyond my expectations for this
vintage automatic watch (although Omega might disagree
with my previous expectations).
I got my blue-sky wish of a 30+ year-old vintage watch
I can trust will keep accurate time, appealing, with
high sentimental value, and for a reasonable price.
Your communication with me was excellent also. Thanks
much for your help making this a reality.

Thank you so much for your apology - it is rare that a
customer wouldadmit to making an honest mistake, which
is what this was. And pleasedon't worry - you owe me
nothing. Normally, when a customer must returna watch
to me under warranty, assuming that something has gone
wrongwith my repair, I refund their postage. Since I
did not refund yours,we are even. And your kind
apology is worth much more than the cost ofany
additional diagnosis.

You have been a patient, considerate, and reasonable
customer to workwith, and I would be happy to do any
watch repairs you may send my wayin the future.

Dear Stephen,

I recently found the letter you sent with the watches when they were returned to me. You had asked if I was satisfied with the repairs.

The answer is a resounding yes!

I had sent you two watches. A Seiko quartz that was a long time keepsake and also an Omega Seamaster that had just quit working. That one was extra special since it was a gift form my parents long ago. They are working today as if they were new, out of the box.

The work was done flawlessly, and all the information you showed on your web site was totally accurate and made for a very safe and secure process.

The watches are working wonderfully today and I often think of how lucky I was to find your web site. You are truly a craftsman and someone I would recommend to anyone. Thank you for your fine work and excellent business and personal ethics.

Your preventive maintenance of my Speedmaster and opening up of a classic Deville

From: David James

Sent: Wed, 22 Jun 2011  

Dear Mr. Thomas:

You have provided top shelf and expedited service for my Omega Speedmaster and also a "brand new" 20+ year old Omega Deville that had never been on a wrist. My 32 year old Speedmaster which you are familiar from your last service about five years ago is worn irregularly. I sent it along on the presumption it needed service (Omega claims every five years). You replied back it really needed nothing at this time but I chose for you to open it up and do your magic anyway. Also, the Deville was purchased over 20 years ago as "new old stock" from a NYC jeweler going out of business in that area. It was purchased when the intended recipient, my son Michael, was 2 years old, and was going to be his college grad present. Well, he just graduated and that watch, after your "pre-operational service" (You also opined it "needed nothing at this time") has been presented to him. That's the least I can do for a fine lad and a fine piece of machinery. Next year, son #2, David, will have the same type of watch presented to him. You'll be seeing the other Deville in around 9 months or so!

Many thanks for exceptional customer care and reasonable prices. Your service and professionalsim is unmatched. You volunteered to turn down work but I have so much confidence in you that it would cheat myself if I did not take advantage.

Best regards,

Dear Mr. Thomas, I received my 1967 Omega Seamaster back from you and have had it a week. I just want to tell you how pleased I am with your work. It is keeping perfect time. As you know, I originally sent my watch to SMH ( a division of Omega ) for repair. They sent the watch back saying they no longer supported the watch. I then tried to contact their customer service department for further explanation. They never returned my calls! This was disappointing to say the least, as the watch was given to me by my Father in 1997 and means a great deal to me. The watch has quite a history, my father purchased it on his first tour of duty in Vietnam when he was in the Army. My Father, and his watch subsequently survived a second tour of Vietnam a few years later. Needless to say, this Omega faces a relatively boring existence in comparison to those days. Thank you for the excellent service and follow-up during repair. I will highly recommend your service for all watch bearers and in particular Omega owners. Sincerely, Jeff Guillemette _________________________________________________________________

My Speedmaster arrived on Wednesday and I just wanted to let you know
how pleased I am with the work you did for me. The watch looks as if it
just came from the factory - and works as well as it did the day I
bought it over 30 years ago. The transformation is stunning. I had no
idea how much work it needed after all these years or how difficult it
might be to obtain the parts for it. Your professionalism, not only in
your work, but your timely communications, is most appreciated. It's
great to have it back - like meeting up with an old friend who hasn't

I received the Omega Speedmaster last week and am very happy with its operation and appearance. The phosporous was applied with lots of care and looks like new.

Dear Mr. Thomas,

At long last my 33 year old Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch is back! While it took two months to get it serviced because of back-ordered parts, it was certainly worth the wait.

The watch looks brand new again and the chronograph buttons work properly now and I can wind it and set the time. I'm glad I had you re-illuminate the hands and dial markers because they couldn't be seen in the dark anymore.

My only suggestion is that the cleaning should include the metal bracelet. Mine was not cleaned and while this is a minor issue, I think that should be part of the service.

It is difficult in this day and age to find someone who takes their craft seriously and cares about their customers. You took the time to answer my questions promptly during the repair and it was obvious to me that you are genuinely concerned about providing a quality service to people who care about their watches.

I will recommend you to anyone who needs professional watch repair and I will certainly be sending you my watch in the future when it need servicing.

I have been wearing my re-furbished Omega Seamaster Automatic everyday
since it arrived from your shop.

Since this watch was given to me by my father 27 years ago, it is very
special and therefore selecting the most qualified and reputable watch
expert was critical.

The watch looks beautiful, but more important it works! Your
communication on the watch status was timely and complete, the quality
of work professional.

Please feel free to use me as a reference for all OMEGA owners or anyone
who needs a trusted watch repair expert.

Thank you and Best Regards

Dear Christian,

I had the parcel containing your Omega Seamaster watch traced by my
local Post Office this afternoon. It arrived in Miami earlier today, so
if you have not yet received it, or received notice of it, you should be
receiving it tomorrow.

Dear Stephen,

Please excuse the delay but I wanted to wear my watch for a few weeks before I commented on the repair. It has taken awhile but I have finally gotten used to having the weight back on my wrist. The replacement watch I was wearing did not even weigh half as much as my Speedmaster. When I opened the package I was literally stunned, my grandmother gave me this watch when I was thirteen and it has basically been my main watch that entire time. The watch look brand new when I took it out of the box. Every part of it was clean and polished. After I started to wind it I realized how different (stronger and smoother) the action of the new mainspring was compared to when I sent it to you for repair.

The watch has been keeping impeccable time and for the first time in a long time the stop watch function works whenever I press the stop/start button. I really appreciate all of your labor and your single minded determination to get the movement cleaned and balanced and running correctly. The results are nothing short of spectacular. I will be using your service exclusively in the future.

Once again, thank you for your effort. It is great to have my watch back.

Best Regards,




I just received my Omega watch today and it looks great! Thanks for the
good work and always keeping me updated.

Dear Mr. Thomas,

Thank you so much for repairing my self-winding Omega Ladymatic watch. Your charge to repair it was extremely reasonable. It is once again working beautifully. As you know, it is an old watch...probably from the '60's, so I was particularly unhappy when it stopped working when I dropped it accidentally.

We live on the North Olympic Peninsula and it is almost impossible to find quality watch repair around here. We went to the internet and were delighted to find you in Portland since we travel frequently to Portland to visit family.

Thank you again.

Dear Stephen.
My Omega and Tissot watches arrived in the morning mail. I am delighted with your work. They are family heirlooms and I wanted them to be put back in the best condition possible. Thanks to you my goals have been met. Thank you very much!
I have attached photos of two pocket watches that I inherited from my grandfather and great grandfather. If you have time can you take a look at the pictures and tell me anything about these antiques? I know that they are old and that they were used every day by my forefathers, but nothing else. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Roger


Dear Stephen,

I have received my Omega Seamaster Chronometer watch. I am very pleased to say that the quality of repairs is superior to any in my local area. My watch looks and runs great. I thank you for the care and attention you gave to my watch. This being especially true due to the age of the watch which was purchased in 1972. Once again thank you for such excellent service.

Best regards,

Hi Stephen:

Thanks for the excellent work with my Omega watch. It is keeping accurate time and looks like a new watch. I know it was a difficult repair job but obviously a “Quality Watch Repair!”

Thanks again.

Dear B D,

I hope that you have received your Omega Seamaster DeVille by now, and that the work is to your satisfaction. As it was a bit of a bear to work on and find a gold plater to do the case work, if you have a moment, I would appreciate knowing if you are happy with the work. If there is anything amiss or not to your liking, I would very much like to know, particularly as I hope that I have at last found a good gold plater I can stick with.

Thanks again,

Dear Stephen:

We received my Father-in-law's Omega Automatic today and we are delighted with the look and performance of the watch. I really appreciate the service you performed and the extra effort you went through to find a new Omega "cyclops" crystal for this 40 year old vintage piece. Your quick response to all our questions and very fair price for such excellent craftsmanship made it a pleasure to deal with you. 
Thank You, and I will definitely tell others of your fine service.
