You don’t know how you did it. Perhaps last week when you slammed your golf clubs in the boot after a miserable round. Or that bank holiday you had one too many beers with the guys. It doesn’t matter now. It’s happened. Your pride and joy have been scarred. So here you are looking to discover what the damage will be to replace your Seamaster Bezel. Let’s go over your options to get your omega watch repaired and back on your wrist looking like new.
Should I buy an Omega Seamaster Bezel Replacement from Ebay? – The rise of the Frankenstein Watch
‘HIGH-QUALITY REPLACEMENT BEZEL INSERT FOR OMEGA SEAMASTER’ The Ebay advert flashes.
Only £14.99 with free postage. What a deal you begin to think.
But before you go and stockpile Omega bezel inserts for a rainy day have a think about whether or not you want to start devaluing your Omega.
By patching up your Omega with non-genuine parts you quickly wipe hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds off the value of your Omega watch. So while it might seem like a great deal, is it worth your watch becoming worthless to save some money in the short term.
The Omega bezel inserts, often manufactured in China, are not made of the high-quality ceramic used by Omega. They are instead cheap coated plastic which will begin to scratch and fade within months. They do however offer some friendly fitting advice – ‘Most of our inserts have the adhesive already on the bezel in the form of very strong sticky back plastic (if not then you can use household glue – NOT superglue).
How very kind of them to steer you away from the superglue.
That being said, it’s your watch, so it’s your call. If your happy to save some money initially to get your Omega looking better and don’t care about the watch retaining its value then it is an option.

Buying your Omega Seamaster Bezel Replacement direct from Omega
You can, of course, go straight to the source and order your Omega Seamaster Bezel insert direct from Omega.
You will, however, have to arrange to send your watch directly to the main omega service centre in Southampton as they will not distribute parts. Your Seamaster will then be booked into their workflow and be replaced by an expert Omega technician.
This provides you with peace of mind that your watch retains its authenticity. While this is a great option you must take into consideration postage and insurance costs to send your Omega. Unfortunately replacing the bezel is not included as part of an Omega service cost and is one of the more expensive parts to replace.
