Re: Breitling watch move fast
No matter what is your watch movement (quartz or mechanical) it can be adjusted to keep time properly.
Bring it to your nearest watchmaker and the problem will be solved.
9 sec a day is far too much for Breitling.

you may have to turn the hands around and around to get the day to move, for some reason the day is always a problem on watches, if you go 24 hours around and it does not change you better return the watch.
Of course, there is the way to do that. Try to pull out crown carefully and you will notice that there are two positions (clicks). Second click is when the crown is fully pulled out and the watch hands move by turning crown. But there is first click (lets say - crown is pulled just half way out). In this position the date/day can be quickly changed by turning the crown. Crown=winder.
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).
Yours is the original GMT Master. The GMT Master II allows the GMT hand and the regular hour hand to be set differently but not on your older model. On yours, the regular hour hand the the GMT hand are fixed so that if the triangle on the rotating bezel is at the top, the GMT hand will indicate local time. To indicate time in a 2nd timezone, rotate the bezel to orient the time to the GMT hand. There's a copy of the original instructions posted at:
Hi, Depends on the year. Google however is your friend Google Breitling Source and the watch type and see which year yours is. Assuming its a 2006 to 2010 model it takes a 394 battery. I suggest a google to Breitling source and look in the watch archives there.
Consider sending it to breitling UK, you have a watch worth at least many hundreds of pounds that is waterproof. If you nip down the local muppets he will change the battery and charge you GBP20 not GBP70 but he will not change the case seals or pressure test the watch to ensure the seals are doing their job. Worst case you write off the watch when it gets wet or when you next get sweaty which is the same thing. Specify you want the battery change service only and thats what Breitling do.
