Had some weird stuff go on with my SMP lately...I fully wound it before I slept and the next day, the watch was running very fast. I read that the hairspring can get hung up on something causing erratic movement. It did look a little off to me. I tapped the watch a couple times and it seemed to fix it. I wound and set it and its ok now. Another thing. If you creep the crown back the seconds hand will totally stop which means the hairspring also stops. How is this possible with a full wind? Both of these just started the last 2 weeks after wearing it for 10 months almost daily.

I realized that my AD put the rubber strap on backwards (watch had the steel bracelet on it in the store but I wanted the rubber!)

I was able to fix it myself using the tool that came with my Seamaster Spectre.

I didn?t think I would notice, but the watch looks and feels so much better!

Probably also avoiding a repetitive motion injury from constantly twisting around to see that script - I know I would. It is a real beauty, thanks for sharing the pics. Much better looking in this 'live' context than in the recent write up I saw on it (studio pics).

Thinking about selling my 38.5 Aqua Terra 8500. It's in need of servicing but before I send it off I wanted to know what you guys think of selling it as "recently serviced". Would it impact the sales price and by how much or would it just increase the likelihood of selling it.

Omega servicing is a little less than $600. I'm seeing these watches retailing for a little less than $3k.

As long as it?s an Omega servicing I always considered that a boon and worth a slight premium over regular used. It?s basically refurbished to as like new as possible and with a re-up service warranty, so I used to think it fair if I saw 50% or so of the service cost added to the asking price.
