My speedy pro needs a service. This is virgin ground for me so seeking advice. The closely Omega AD is 4 hours away so I dropped it off at the local Rolex AD to assess the repairs required and price quote. Given the circumstances, which route would you recommend to pursue? Pricing may come into the equation but I assume they will be about equal.
Do you have a local watch maintenance place/watchmaker that you trust? An established local watchstore/jeweller may be able to suggest somewhere to you.
I mention this because the calibre 861/1861 movement in the Speedy Pro is (and has for many years) been based on the Lemania 1873 movement. The 1873 has been used in quite a few other chronographs (although not as many as the other, well-known tri-compax movement, the Valjoux 7750) over the past few decades and so many competent watchmakers/watch repair places will be able to service it for you and will most likely take much less time and do it for a much lower price than an official Omega (or Rolex) service.
