Getting timing set

I just got an Omega Seamaster James Bond model and have been wearing it for a couple of weeks. I set the watch to an atomic clock and it seems to be losing about 10 seconds every couple of days or so. This I find unacceptable. I have had Seiko automatics that kept better time. Yes, I realize that by industry standards this is acceptable, but I figure an Omega should be at least as good as a Seiko as far as accuracy is concerned! Here is my question. When you buy an Omega do you just assume the timing is ok and go ahead and wear it, or should I bring it to a jeweler and have it put on the timing machine and have the time tweeked just right for my individual watch?
