Tough - yes, but not unbreakable


Omega Moonwatch plexiglass replacement - this is not a trivial repair. It requires specialist tools, removing the mechanism out of the case, removing the bezel and cracked plexiglass, case cleaning, and installation. Each set requires a very specific set of tools and parts are friction fit (press in fit). And lastly, the final step is a water pressure test. The whole exercise takes about 1 hour. Even the most experienced watchmakers do not take this job as a routine repair. The bad news is that recently our spare parts supplier informed us that a new price list for Omega parts is to be expected any day now. We used to charge $300 for parts, labour and GST inclusive. The bottom line is - be kind to your Moonwatch!
