    Default Servicing Omega WWW military watch in London/UK

    Hi all

    I'm a newbie here and generally new to military watches as well though I have been collecting other vintage watches.

    I have just acquired my first WWW watch - an Omega.
    It appears to be all original and though the dial has a couple of scratches, I quite like it. Posted a couple of quick photos below

    It is in working order but running quite slow and definitely needs a proper servicing.

    Any suggestions for reliable options to service this one at a reasonable rate please?

    Try Andrew Leftley at Time World Services in Plymouth or STS vintage Omega specialists in Essex.

    I've used Duncan thewatchbloke on three occasions for non-military watches and would recommend him and would have no hesitation using him for military watches. I've just got in to the habit of using Andrew Leftley or John Senior for military watches and Duncan thewatchbloke or another Duncan at Genesis for non-military. It's just habit rather than preference, all four have been great. As we know it's unfortunately down to three now as John has announced semi-retirement, but good luck to him, he was a great resource.

    My vote would be with Duncan the watch bloke.
    You need to contact him first though.

    I think Duncan the watch bloke, is rather backed up with work at the moment, but please check .

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions

    I've reached out to all and will probably go with Duncan or Richard though the former does imply a very long wait!
