Your manual wordings are definitely clearer than mine and your Hamilton is better than the Oris, the latter of which still states it as a "recommendation".

I just checked a BMW owners manual, and they have "recommended" service intervals as well. I'm not sure what's wrong with the word "recommendation." Can you help me understand? If I'm selling you something, I'm going to give you my recommendations. As I understand it, recommendation means;

"A suggestion or proposal as to the best course of action, especially one put forward by an authoritative body."

A manufacturer recommendation is a pretty important statement to me.


Anyway, repair costs are unpredictable. Service costs are more predictable.
