Years back, when Omega presented their Co-Axial innovation and silicon balance springs, they raised the warranty to 4 years (rather than the standard 2 years, which is additionally obligatory by European law for instance). Presently, Omega makes it one stride further and chose to raise the warranty on the entirety of their watches to 5 years, paying little mind to which watch model (or sort of development that is inside).

Effective July 1st 2018

The new 5-year warranty will produce results from today, November 2nd, 2018 and will likewise be applied to any OMEGA watch bought on or after July 1st, 2018. So indeed, this additionally implies your (and our own) Speedy Tuesday Ultraman will have the 5-year warranty. Yeeee.

Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of Omega, said, “Our suffering commitment at Omega is to the satisfaction and certainty of our clients. The entirety of our new progressions, from spearheading innovation to the best in class factory we opened one year prior, have empowered us to present this new 5-year warranty, demonstrating that our guidelines are constantly expanding and that our clients can have much more trust in the Omega watch they wear.”

It comes a piece as a surprise to us from one perspective in light of the fact that with the Master Chronometer guaranteed watches the warranty was at that point substantial for a very long time. An additional year is a decent in addition to without a doubt. What surprised us is that they likewise applied this new principle for any remaining looks also, those with hand-wound chronograph developments (Lémania based), quartz developments and non-Master Chronometer guaranteed programmed developments. Later on, Omega focuses on full inclusion with their Master Chronometer certificate for the entirety of their assortment. With the new fabricate that opened precisely a year prior in Bienne , it appears to be that Omega feels adequately sure to apply the 5-year warranty period to all watches.

Other brands that offer a more drawn out warranty period are Breitling for instance, with 5 years on the watches with fabricate developments (those without having a warranty of 2 years), Rolex additionally with 5-years and Grand Seiko with a 3-years warranty. Brands like Patek Philippe, IWC, Panerai and Jaeger-LeCoultre offer 2-years (as composed over, this is additionally frequently needed by some laws).

Hopefully, it won’t ever be vital, however consistently ensure you know about the warranty time of a watch when you make the buy. Extravagance watches stay to be an item where there is a ton of manual impedance and work done, so mistakes can be made (and will be made). Albeit most blemishes and breakdown are probably going to come to the surface certainly before 5 years of proprietorship, at any rate you are covered for a more drawn out period as of now with your Omega watch.
