Question about Omega Seamaster 300M Auto 2531.80.00 Wrist Watch

2 Answers

Differentiating omega model 2561.80 and a model 2531.80

I bought what I thought was a 2561.80 on ebay. I had the watch authenticated at a reputable jeweler and it is indeed an omega watch with automatic movement. My research brings me to the 2561.80 as having a quartz movement and the 2531.80 an automatic. Can you help me varify what model I actually own. Thanks, Kris

Kris, the 2561.80 is a mid-sized (36mm case width) quartz bond seamaster. its second hand will tick every second and is powered by a battery. the 2531.80 on the other hand is 41mm in width and it's automatic. no batteries needed. the second hand would be sweeping as oppose to the ticking quartz movement. the face would have a "chronograph" word on it.

Kris,
The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it.  This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to.  Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch.  If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.

    I have antique womans gold nugget bulova watch with 014ko and 890643 on the back of the watch should I throw this away


    Don't throw it away! Bulova have a good reputation. It ma not be worth much, but you have the serial number and the 14k probably means it's 14 carat gold. 14 carat old is the highest quality used for watches (18 carat is too soft for everyday wear) I used to work for Shackman and we made watch cases and bracelets for the major brands such as Omega.

    Trysearching for Bulova watches on eBay then looking at 'completed listings' under 'advanced' after you search for some idea of value.

    Regards, Andy

    I want to buy a Cartier lighter but I want to make sure it,s real. How do I look up the serial number?


    To look up the steel ligter serial number is very easy ,I specialize in buying and selling Cartier watches. I've seen fakes with all the correct marks and a serial number, but that doesn't mean they are legitimate. If the watch was registered by Cartier when it was sold or if it has been sent in to Cartier for service Cartier will be able to verify it is authentic, but be aware that if the watch was not originally sold in North America or was not registered when sold (fairly common) it can still be authentic. Some sellers offer the Cartier quartz model for sale and only state that the watch has a quartz movement, but fail to mention if it has a Cartier quartz movement. If it has a replacement movement in it the watch is technically authentic, but not original and is not worth as much as one with an original or a genuine Cartier replacement movement. The biggest mistake I've seen amateur Cartier buyers make is using the Cartier micro-script signature on the Roman numeral to verify authenticity. Indeed this is a good indicator, but not the best indicator as there were many Cartier watches produced prior to the technology required to make the micro-script possible and not all Cartier watches have Roman numerals for the dial to have the micro-script signature. Furthermore, the micro-script is not always located at the same place and if the dial has been refinished it may not appear at all. Another common problem is actually caused by language differences, i.e. "all original versus "authentic". A watch can be authentic without being all original. Unless someone has owned the watch since it was new and it has never left their sight it is impossible for them to state the watch is "all original" as a part could have been replaced at some point in time -- even without their knowledge. Your best bet is to buy from a reputable seller even if you have to pay slightly more money. -- Cartier_Specialist

    Dear Sir, I have one of the above Omega Seamasters which was bought in June 2007. Since then the bracelet has fallen apart 4 times now and Swatch want me to pay for a new one. Is this normal for a bracelet...


    Hi dunphysteven

    It is not normal that the bracelet falls so often.
    There seems to be an issue with the product. However the warranty period in most cases is limited to 2-3 years, which unfortunately has crossed in your case.
    Therefore in this case u need to pay for the bracelet.

    Alternatively you can sell your watch on ebay or some other similar site with the mention that bracelet is an issue.

    Hope this helps you.

    Regards

    Watch is about 6 years old. Went in for a "clean and service". Running a little slow but otherwise ok.Cost $350.00. for clean/service. Now it stops intermittently. Been back to repairer four...


    All decent watch repairers should issue at least 6 months warranty on their craftsmanship. If the watch repairer can not resolve the problem and your watch is still stopping, you can ask for full refund. Next time save your nerves and time - find on the web where your nearest Omega dealer is and bring the watch to them. It may take quite a lot of time and cost dearer, but you will have your watch serviced at proper Omega workshop and will get original Omega warranty.

    "The seller states" ? Why did the seller not provide you pix of the back of the watch ? I would be VERY skeptical about this. If you really want a Cartier, you can buy one used from a number of reputable websites, such as TimeZone.com and Chrono24.com; there are verified reputable sellers there you can buy from. Note the prices on these sites; they are what these watches really cost used, usually a very good indication of whether a timepiece is authentic or not. BE CAREFUL on Ebay ! :(

    You must Re-Link the SDM pod to the watch after changing the battery. Go to the link below, It's not the exact model, but, should work, if not, go to www.nike.com and download the manual for your model.
