Just got it back after a full Omega service. I was shocked at the timekeeping score. It has always been very good but not that good. I have abrand new omega and it gains 5 seconds per day. This one is 30 years old and it is perfect. I now have an extra 2 years of warranty. I love this watch. It is the Titatnium version of the watch. Serial number places it at a manufacture date of 1987

Nice one!

They didn;t charge for the service? Isn't it surprisingly around $750?

Yes it is around $800. It was serviced a little under 2 years ago but the date wouldn't shift with the knob anymore so they actually went through a complete servicing again (they also replaced all the gaskets again) and gave me the 2 year warranty from today. it was still under warranty so they didn't charge anything.

I don’t want to do it down, but that line, the Pro Diver, the earliest models are from c. 1993. To the best of my knowledge, none were in production in the 80s.

Wow! that' really nice to have an avergae of +0.... (y)(y)
So, I have your younger cousin watch that is 10 year younger - I see yours uses Caliber 1154; mine uses Caliber 1164.
I also got it back from a full service around mid-July. This time went for service to Nesbit's in Seattle. On average mine gains time in almost all positions, with an average of +3.8spd
Did you send your watch to the New Jersey service center? And, how are you so lucky to be charged $0 for a full service? :unsure:

They said it is 1992 at the Omega shop but all the charts i see online for dating serial numbers place it at 1987. It looks like those charts are off :)

i love the way the 1154 wobbles on my wrist. it feels like the watch is alive and i can feel it spin. No other watches i own gave me that same satisfying feeling

lol! Yes! It’s younger cousinCal 1164 has the same genes. I think it’s the dna of the ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. Flip your wrist in a certain way & you get that rotor free wheeling counter clockwise....

Yes, i actually missed that wobble. Watches that don't have it feel lifeless. I don't believe anyone who hasn't worn one can relate. ETA Valjoux 7750 it is, one of the best movement ever made, even my Master Chronometer Omegas don't come close to it in terms of timekeeping.

Amazing! Looks like they didn’t swap out the dial which is great.

Beautiful watch! I'm usually not a fan of chronos, as they tend to look too busy for me. This one has a very clean look.
