ABOUT US:

Why buy from us?

At QVT (QualityVintageTimepieces.com) you will find some of the finest and expertly

restored vintage timepieces.  By entering our site, you will perceive that our specialties are

vintage Omega, Longines and Rolex.  We focus on a few brand names in order to build up

better knowledge and understanding on the brands that we carry.  To professionally answer

our customer's questions, it is very important for us to know what we are selling. 

We are expert collectors and watch makers; therefore, every watch that is listed on the site

is expertly examined internally and externally. 

It is easy to spot a fake watch from looking at it externally.  However, spotting a "married watch"

becomes a challenge for many including experts.  A married watch is a watch that is genuine, but

the mechanism and case do not belong to one another.  The simplest example would be an

Omega Constellation with a 562 caliber, when the caliber should be 561 or 564.  QVT guarantee

that our watches are 100% authentic and correct.  

 

QVT special life time warranty:

When you purchase a regular manual wind or automatic (excluding chronograph, moon phase and quartz)

watch on our site, we provide a special QVT life time warranty for the initial purchaser or whoever that it is

purchased for.  With this special warranty all your future maintenances for the purchased watch will only cost

$100 each time (excluding shipping and any replacement parts). 

This way, you will have the confidence of owning a luxury watch without worrying about future expensive

maintenance fees.  It is recommended for your watch to get its regular maintenance service every

3 – 5 years depending on how often you wear it. 

WE ARE LOCATED IN CANADA

Greater Toronto Area.

DATE SETTING ADVICE FOR YOUR VINTAGE OMEGA:

 

Caliber 353 and 355 – There is no quick set feature on these very first calendar calibers. 

Each date will advance by turning hands every 24 hrs.  The date can be set forward or backward depending on how you turn the hands.  

Turning the hands clockwise will allow you to set the date forward. 

Turning the hands counter clockwise will allow you to set the date backward. 

For instance, if the date is ahead by a few days it is better to counter clockwise turn the hands. 

Caliber 502, 503, and 504 – There are two ways to setting the date for the following calibers. 

You can set the date by turning the hands every 24 hrs for each date to advance. 

Or, you can turn the hands until the date changes and then counter clock turn the hands to around 11pm. 

From here, turn the hands back to 12 midnight and the date will change once more. 

Keep doing this until you get to the correct date before setting the time. 

Caliber 560, 561, 562, 610, and 611 – There are also two ways to setting the date for the following calibers.  

You can set the date by turning the hands every 24 hrs for each date to advance.  Or, you can turn the hands until the date changes

and then counter clock turn the hands to around 9pm.  From here, turn the hands back to 12 midnight and the date will change once more. 

Keep doing this until you get to the correct date before setting the time. 

 

BEFORE WEARING YOUR OMEGA WATCH:

Before wearing your automatic watch for the first time or when you have it sitting at rest for over a day, it is best to give it an initial wind before wearing it. 

The initial wind consists of 15 times hand wind to give the watch a boost start.  If you’re someone who has an inactive occupation

(ex. Working on the computer) throughout the day, you may need to hand wind the watch every now and then to keep it running strong and accurate. 

 

IS MY WATCH WATERPROOF?

Firstly, the term “waterproof” has been replaced with the term “water resistance” as it was misleading people that their watch can do anything under water. 

In a watch terminology, the meter depth is measure differently than what it actually says.  Vintage watch are considered to be 30m water resistance,

which means the watch cannot be emerge into water or shower with.  Washing your hands or out in the rain will do no harm to your vintage watch. 

On a brand new watch, the required depth in order to swim with is 50m water resistance.   If you plan to swim or shower with a brand new watch,

it is recommended that the gasket gets replaced and have water pressure tested at least once a year.
