Re: Omega Service question

Does anyone know if omega or Nesbit can source a new bracelet for my 2254 if I get it serviced through them? The speedy style? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Omega still sells the clasps and links, so I'd think full bracelets are still sold by them. I don't think they'd require service to order...

Seen quite a few of these flipped, but I enjoy wearing mine, so it's not going anywhere.

It’s going to bring corduroys back into style. Rub it on your pants to charge it up!

Re: Redesigned Precista PRS-3?

I owned a PRS-3 years ago, bought pre-owned. The original lume probably wasn't much to write home about, because the one I got had been relumed by Kent Parks. I believe it has always had a 42mm case.

Re: New Arrival...it's a whopper

A JSAR was the only watch I ever bought with the intention of flipping it for a quick profit. Some years ago, Amazon had a killer deal on a JSAR for $349 and and I made an easy few hundred on it. If I'd been really greedy, I would've bought more than one. https://uniim1.shutterfly.com/ng/services/me...

Re: Servicing Info

As far as checking on service history, I contacted the local boutique and gave them the serial number of a Planet Ocean I purchased. They called Omega to find out the last time it was serviced by them. As others have said, if it's not hacking properly, it's a good reason to get service done.

It's been quite a while since I shopped for a wine cabinet, so I'm not too current on what's available, but I can tell you that a cabinet, not a built in cellar, is the way to go.

Everything I've read about extended warranties is that they're a high profit item for the seller and a bad deal for most buyers.

This Chromebook has a lot of capabilities for the money, including touchscreen and Google Play Store apps. 4 gigs of ram is plenty of speed for a chromebook.
