Mine was recently serviced after 7 years. It was losing 2 seconds per day, now gaining 0.5 seconds per day and looking like new :)

This has been a great watch and my daily wearer for a few years now.

It’s coming up on five years from the original purchase date. How soon are you all getting your first service? Is it time?

Mine is 10 years old, and was serviced 5 years ago. It's running dead on now, so am reluctant to send for it's next service. Was a +3, but now runs spot on. Go figure!

I agree. Don’t service again unless it’s needs it.

Thanks for the advice.

It’s historically been +7 sec/day so I’d like to get a bit more accuracy. I might as well get that done with a service rather than waiting a few more years..

I almost picked up a PO before I got my current GMT. It was a 45 XL. Just couldn't pull the trigger. Of course now that I've spent time with the 44mm GMT, I think I could have handled the XL. Oh well, maybe down the road?

I sent my POLMLE in for service a couple of weeks ago, when it hit 7 years old, and should have it back in late May. I wasn't having any issues, but I put it in the safe 2 years ago at 5 years old, so I wouldn't wear out any parts just in case I serviced it locally. My local watchmaker only knows the 2500, and is not a certified Omega watchmaker or have a parts account - he did a fantastic job with my 2201.51 4 years ago. But it went to Omega Culver City.

I’m sure they will do a great job. Mine was very well used with lots of scratches along the tops of the lugs and on the case. It’s now pristine. I forgot just how beautiful these watches are in brand new condition.

Mine is so pristine that I asked them not to do a polish.
