    Quotes of $7000-$9000 quoted on the Omega Forums - ouch.

    We've probably all seen these horror story pictures before, but they're shocking all the same every time I see them. Amazes me that they quote 70% of the cost of the watch just for a new case.

    Boring old steel for me.

    Ouch! Also kind of underscores just how far from the spirit of the original speedy the ceramic ones are.

    Its stuff like this that makes the more traditional and WAAAAY cheaper alternative of stainless steel a no brainer for me.

    Araldite ? Got to be worth a try against a $9,000 repair bill

    That's absurd. Almost the price of (an intact) pre owned one. Surely just replacing the whole case would be cheaper?
