    Ok so I initially tried to press for mineral glass to the caseback. I cracked three of them so I heated up the bronze and sweat the glass in there. Was fine for a few months but the back glass exploded in my watch box. It actually split the mineral glass in half. The one half is left in tact. So I’m going to sweat in another piece. Had to also design a caseback tool. Fucking 12 sided bull shit.

    I'm not a big fan of this one but wife got it for me for Christmas a bunch of years ago, so I wear it once a year or so.

    Anybody know where to go for Omegas around here? I'm looking at a Planet Ocean on joma, but not sure if a local AD can get in the same ballpark on price after exchange?

    Or are there any good AD's in the US I should look at?

    Calgary Jewellers is the only Omega dealer left in Calgary if I'm not mistaken and they are getting strict on discounts. I doubt they will be able to touch what you can get a grey market watch from Joma or Ashford for.

    If it's the PO GMT that you are looking for, my friend has a lightly used one on rubber strap for sale.

    Just go Calgary Jewelry, they are good! You won't get as much discount as "pre Covid", as price is sky rocketing due to Covid 19, but they should be able to offer some deal for you on non popular model such as the Planet Ocean. (unlike Moon watch, they are Hot models)

    If you order from Joma etc, with all the Tax/Duty/Handling fee, the price difference is usually few hundred buck to $1,000, it is not worth to buy from Grey Market, and when you buy local, if anything goes wrong, (warranty etc) they can help you to ship the watch for repair.

    I once emailed the manufactory, they said they won't honor warranty for Joma. (anyone has experience here regarding to warranty work from Joma?)

    What is causing prices to go up? Inflation? Or are there supply issues.

    I guess all of the above, and people could not go Vacation or so, so spend more money on watches ...

    That Planet Ocean is nice!

    $4800 US, by the time landed to Calgary with tax/duty/fee/shipping, will be~ $7K, vs $8,400 MSRP here, you can ask to see what they can do.

    Yes, it was fine. They covered the cost to send the watch back to them and paid to ship it back to me repaired.

    Second on Calgary Jewelry, bought my Seamaster 007 and Oris Aquis from there, my friend setup the deal for me though and he buys 6-10 a year from them. So depends on who you know, a reaonsable deal can be have.

    I've bought watches from CJ before...most recently my PAM.

    I had a good experience. But I gotta be honest, I just don't put a ton of value into the "experience" or a "relationship" with a retailer. I don't think I put a ton of value into warranties either, for that matter.

    I bought two Omegas from Continental Jewellers in Washington DC. This was about a decade ago though. But it was awesome. At the time the Canadian dollar was strong and the US/CDN pricing was such that you could take advantage. In addition with the discount they gave me, I was barely $4k Canadian for the two watches. Granted, one is a less popular model. But one is a Planet Ocean.

    A little while later I think I remember reading that they got in trouble from Omega for their heavier discounting. They were the recommended dealer on timezone.com which is how I came to know about them.
