    Hi, I'm new in the world of watchmaking and with my first salary I want to by my first watch
    I purchased this watch, a omega seamaster cosmic 2000 with the cal 1022 omega.PNG

    when I received the watch have the seconde Hand free in the dial, I contact the seller he says it was due to the delivery and this is easy to fixe he give me 30 euro for the repair

    One day after I tried to change the days and now the minute hand is free and drop when I shake it
    see the video (
    )

    the seller says I doesn't have to change the day when the seconde hand is free, and its fixable

    do you think he is right ? do you know if is this difficult to repair and how approximately this cost ...
    thank for your answer and sorry for my English

    The watch needs a service. It's going to cost more than $30

    Do you have a choice to send it back. If not a service will do well for years of hassle free wearing

    By the way most vintage watches need a service if not coming with proof.

    How much was the watch?
    Where did you buy it from?

    Unless it comes with documentation, I would consider it unserviced - regardless of what the seller claims.

    Hands have lost lume or infill ( May have been black )

    So can you send watch back. If not it’s a learning curve.

    Sometimes shit happens on shipping, I recently sent a cheap watch that was working well when shipped and didn’t work when it reached the other side of the world.

    A good watchmaker will sort it for you. :thumbsup:

    Funny I had issues with watches I got from Turkey. They were just cheap rados so it wasn’t a big deal. Hopefully those hands are just loose, too bad you are having other problems. On the plus side once you drop the couple hundred on the service you will be good for years. Welcome to the watch world
