Omega time keeping under the METAS standard is better than the superlative standing. I cannot stand anything running slow.Rolex by a million miles. I have owned 22 over a 25 year period. Only one was purchased as a project that didn’t work and couldn’t be repaired. The other 21 were good timekeepers.
The most shocking was a Perpetual reference 6634. Out of curiosity I opened the (then 30 year old) case with my newly obtained Rolex case opener. What I discovered made me wonder how the watch worked at all, much less tell time. The rotor axle was bent, and the rotor shaved the plates where it made contact. The shavings were distributed throughout the movement. The fact it was still running and accurate was enough to make me respect Rolex forever.
On the other hand, my Omega Broad Arrow, purchased new, needed four trips to service in seven years, twice under warranty, twice at my expense. The fourth time I had the brilliant idea to purchase a new Speedmaster to wear while waiting for the Broad Arrow to be returned. Sadly, after a few weeks the new Speedmaster needed FIVE trips to Omega to make it function the way it was supposed to. I sold both.
To add insult to injury, the one time I talked myself into looking at another Omega (Planet Ocean chronograph), the reset pusher literally popped out (but not off) while I examined it. I’ll never buy another Omega again.
I would buy another Rolex in a heartbeat, but paying to get a Daytona would give me a heart attack. I’m really only interested in chronographs at the moment, and honestly the Daytona is hard for me to read without glasses. I tried both steel models and an 18k white gold model. None were legible for me.
