    Bad News Regarding Omega F300hz’s

    Omega / Swatch Group have recently moved the goalposts with regards to this calibre. (And others still to be confirmed)

    Omega movements are defined by categories, and until a few weeks ago F300hz’s, using movement calibre refs’  1250 & 1255, were category 3. They are now defined as category 4, which means that they will now not supply any parts for them, even to their own official service centres, and that they can only be repaired / restored by returning them to Bien.

    We have not been given exact costs for such work, but word has it that it could be from £1,000.00 and completion times of aprx’ 6 months!

    If any of you enthusiasts out there in Omega forum land have any relavent information , please do not hesitate to contact me. – martin@martinsjewellers.co.uk.

    Important note. We can still have other electronic calibres such as Bulova successfully repaired & restored, so keep sending them in!

    • We will still quite happily estimate with no obligation or charge as far as Martins of Glasgow are concerned, but the company we use do charge us for estimates that are not proceeded, £35.00, so we obviously have to pass this on to the client.

    We have several new ranges of fabulous jewellery for you, any one of which will help you make that difficult choice easy.

    Alfred Terry of England

    this range is now available to purchase online from this website! Visit our diamond jewellery page here.

    A comprehensive range of diamond and gem set jewellery in 18ct or 9ct, white and yellow gold & also platinum.

    Available to buy online or by personal visits to our shop.

    We have chosen alfred terry for several years now for our core range of quality diamond set jewellery, because we believe their quality and prices are hard to beat. They are at the forefront of classic design and we have clients who return year after year to see what they are offering for festive season.

    The range consists of earrings, pendants & bracelets, from just over £100.00 to over £1,000.00.

    “Miluna” by World Gems of Italy

    We regard ourselves as honoured to be one of only three jewellers in the west of scotland to be chosen to stock this wonderful range of jewellery from italy.

    This range of pendants, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings, consists of 18ct white gold and set with diamonds and in somecases, pearls, or even both!

    Stock is limited so please be quick!

    “White ice”

    “Silver diamond set jewellery with 18ct white gold looks”.

    We were very excited when we were first approached to stock “white ice” as we had been searching for a range to offer to our customers who did not want to buy a gift that was available in “every second jewellery shop in the high street”.

    It is, in our opinion, quite stunning, representing exeptional value for money with high value looks. The range consists of diamond set silver jewellery, including earrings, rings, pendants & bracelets.

    Prices start from under £45.00 to around £150.00.

    “Mckenzie”

    This is a new range of silver & stone set jewellery that suits traditional & contemporary styles. Gail chose this range as it offers attractive jewellery at prices from under £20.00. Ideal if you are chosing gifts with a budget in mind!

    “Touch”

    we present the touch range to our clients, because although we have been offered the same ranges as the multiple and high street shops, our clients have always seemed to be after something you are not going to see in every shop window and especially catalogues!

    Diamond earrings & pendants in 9ct, 18ct yellow & white gold, from around £60.00 to over £200.00, beautifully presented in round & curved wooden presentation boxes.

    “M.O.G.”

    For a few years we toyed with the idea of our own range of diamond and gem set jewellery, and after many months searching for the right supplier, we were introduced to tim, from manchester, who had imported inexpensive but quality jewellery for his own business, and due to distance between business’s, agreed to supply us, for the first time last christmas.

    It was such a success, it is now a permanent feature in our cabinets.

    Yellow & white gold mounted rings, pendants & earrings consisting of diamonds, sapphires, topaz. Garnets, “mystic” topaz and this seasons “must have” stone amythest, all beautifully presented, with our compliments, in light coloured solid wood presentation boxes.

    We also have silver jewellery by carrick and something silver both of which have proved very popular for that difficult, teen to early 30′s, age group! The prices ranges from under £15.00 to around £100.00.

    And please do not forget we have an ever changing stock of antique and “previously cherished” jewellery for ladies and gentlemen.

    This usually consists of rings, brooches, pendants, bracelets, necklaces and unlike many other jewellers, wristwatches and antique pocket watches and chains, with prices usually ranging from from under £100.00 to around £30,000.00 *

    * This stock is constantly changing and we cannot guarantee any specific item will be in stock at one time. If you are looking for anything particularly, please contact via ‘phone or email.
