Read the manual.
No Seriously, I think your problem may be because the Date Change mechanism is already engaged between 9pm and 3am, if you atempt to change the date during this period is will damage the watch requiring its return to Breitling for repair.

Always ensure its not between 9pm and 3am before changing date either by setting the time forward or using the quick date change mode.

And seriously, read this section of the manual carefully.

Good luck.

You're not supposed to change the time at certain times if it is an automatic. I think any time after 8pm and before 4am (but check your manual). Apparently it messes up the mechanism. Maybe that's the issue?

I have a Breitling SuperOcean A17360. How does the rotating bezel work and how does one use it?


The bezel rotates (manuall) so that you can set the time you have to dive, next to the minute hand. Then as the minute hand rotates, you can see how long you have left before your oxygen runs out.

I bought a Breitling Superocean Chrono (A13340) from "Sakal" duty free shop at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv Israel on 9-12-2010. The "attestation de chronometre" certificate number...

One other note.


The COSC number generally refers to the movement number not the case number.


Inspect the hang tags that came with the watch.. the movement number may be referred to on one of them... or to the COSC certificate.


Otherwise the only way the movement number can be viewed is to remove the back.


Watches have several numbers.. reference and serial.

A - Stainless Steel

13 - Caliber

3 - Certified

40 - Model (Super Ocean)


The case will have a number the movement and the bracelet.. the crystal etc etc.


When you have the watch serviced.. have them write the movement number down for you.. for comparison.


Good luck!

I don't know how to change the date on my breitling colt


Their web site does not give any user manuals but most watches change the date by pulling out the crown to position 2 (1 is the normal home position, 3 is fully out and 2 is inbetween the two) and rotate the crown to change date.

This quality of watch may require you to turn the crown wheel anticlockwise before pulling it out (extra seal).

If this does not work them go to http://www.breitling.com/en/index.php#/models/aeromarine/chrono-colt/ and using the menu on the left, locate their nearest service center and contact them. I fell sure that they will be only too happy to explain the procedure for changing the date.

I've got a breitling superocean chrono and want to set the time, how do i do this?


Keep in mind that I dont have the watch in my hand... :-)

If this is an authentic Breitling...

You should have 2 buttons on the right with the crown between them. The crown screws down so you need to unscrew it before you attempt to set! Once unscrewed with gentle pressure pull the crown out. There should be 2 clicks, pull to 2nd click or furthest distance from case. That should be the time setting mode. Turn clockwise until the date changes then set your time. To change the date push back to the 1st click and that should be the date set mode. One direction will be for day and the opposite will be date. I believe that if you pull the crown back to 2nd click and push your buttons that should change the subdials for chrono. You might need to push both buttons at the same time.

Ive set Breitlings before but they arent a common watch we see. Most people dont use the Chrono so if the directions dont work for setting those then I wouldnt worry too much about it! Not many people are going to notice those. :-) Also be so very careful if its a real Breitling as they are a very expensive to fix! :-)

***DONT FORGET TO SCREW THE CROWN BACK DOWN OR YOU WILL GET WATER INSIDE THE WATCH!***

How to set date on breitling watches


On most.  Turn the winding screw anti-clockwise until it clicks and pops out slightly. Pull it all the way out or half way out to change the time or date.

How do you wind my breitling watch to set


unscrew the crown anticlockwise until it pops out then turn it clockwise about 50 times. 
If the hand or date move, you pulled the pin too far. Push it back in and continue winding.

How do I set date & time?


usually breitlings have a screw-in crown with a gasket for diving. If you cannot pull the crown away from the case, try unscrewing it. After a little pressure to the left, the crown should begin to turn. Unscrew it carefully and you should be able to pull it out one stop for the date and all the way (note second hand stops) to set the time. Be careful pushing it back in and screwing it back down. You don't want to potentially damage the threads. The crown is back in place when you ca't screw it in any more and the "B" is straight up and down

Hi snapper,

I suppose when you're setting the time on your watch, passing the midnight marker the date changes. In that case you can go to the date funcion and reset the date.
