Question about Omega Seamaster 300M Auto 2531.80.00 Wrist Watch

Seamaster running really fast gaining about 10min/hr!

I have an automatic seamaster that's about two years old and last week it started running really fast, gaining about 10 min/hr! I've let it run down and then tried to 'restart' it, but that hasn't helped. Anybody have any idea what's wrong with it?

    The hairspring might also be dirty and therefore sticking to itself. The hairspring is about the only thing that will cause this much gain. Mr. McPherson's answer may also be correct. Michael, Wostep

My omega seamaster professional planet ocean co-axial chronometer has just stopped ticking, what is the problem do i need a new battery or do i need to wind it and if i havent wound it 48 hours can...


As I can see,this is an Automatic Omega watch.The most possible cause is that the watch is out of power.
Ensure the watch in your palm by passing four fingers throught closed strap and moving it up and down,making a trajectory of about 60 degrees, many times not too fast,not too slow.Try many times.If problem persists,my advice is to take it to an Authorised Omega Service Centre (as it is an expensive watch) for secure service and repair if needed.

Omega automatic seamaster losing time


Most likely your watch needs to be serviced.

Every watch, both mechanical and quartz needs regular service.

When the oils in the watch dry out they get gummy and will work against the gear train. They also stop lubricating and friction builds up causing wear.

Hope this helps,

Omega Seamaster gaining about 10 minutes per hour


Hi honestfunguy. Take it back! Omega watches are usually guaranteed for 2 years or even 3 years (Co-axial escapement), so you should not have a problem getting it repaired under warrantee. No way should it be be gaining (or losing) 10 minutes per day, let alone 10 minutes per hour. Could be any number of things, from a broken mainspring to problems with the timing regulator, but they are very complex watches and should not be looked at by anyone apart from Omega whilst in warrantee, otherwise you'll probably void the warrantee. Hope this helps; Eagle58
