I am afraid apart from the aerospace you wont find most breitling manuals on line unless you find one on ebay with a watch box normally GBP50. I suggest you contact Breitling UK who will provide one at relatively low cost, they are very helpfull.
Its best to change on the hour.Stop your watch so that the second hand is pointing to 12.
Move the hands to the time i.e 10am then advance the minute hand 5 mins past the hour, then turn it back to 10am, when the time comes push set and your hands are set.
I think you might have not moved the minute hand forward 5 mins and back.
You can now set your digital time from your hands setting.
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
If it is the spring that connects the watch to the lugs, It is called a spring bar. You can easily get some on ebay . Or just got o a local independent watchmakrer shouldnt charge you more than $10 to put a new set of spring bars on.
It is possible to set the main analogue hour and minute hand 30 minutes out of phase with the digital readout, but doing so will also put the analogue UTC dial 30 minutes off. It can be done by using a variation of the proceedure for zeroing the watch hands as follows:
1. Rotate the crown in its normal opering position to set the watch in chronograph mode (mode dial pointing to "chr")
2. Pull out the crown to the second click. This should cause all the hands on the watch to return to zero. "HR" should appear on the left-hand digital display. This will allow you to move the hour hand by twisting the crown. Advance it to about half way between the 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions.
3. Press the top button. "MIN" should appear in the left-hand digital display. This allows you to adjust the minute hand. Twist the crown to advance it to the 6 o'clock, or 30 minute, position. Note that this will also move the minute hand on the small UTC dial to the 30 minute position.
4. Press the crown back into its normal position.
5. Reset the digital time and date according to a time zone that is in a one-hour offset from UTC.
This is not a perfect solution. Your digital readings will show the correct time for all one-hour offset time zones while your analogue nads are 30 minutes out of phase. Your small UTC dial will also be 30 minutes out of phase with the digital UTC.
Hope this helps.
