Question about Breitling Navitimer World 715 A24322 Watch
I have a beautiful Vintage Navitimer (806), ca. 60s and it's in near-mint condition but for a lost chrono pusher (lost while effecting emergency car repairs at night in the middle of nowhere). In any event, sent watch in to a Breitling via a local repair shop for an estimate re: that one part (everything else works fine, including the stem itself, and watch was recently serviced by a certified watch maker, so zero problems whatsoever but for a missing chrono pusher). Estimate came back and it was ridiculous, insisting on work that is not only completely unnecessary but would also destroy the vintage nature of the watch itself, thus detracting from value. I will be speaking to Breitling personally about the one--and only one--needed part, everything else including the stem is fine; I am certain that they are aware that it is an unfair business practice to require unnecessary repairs, or perhaps just need to be reminded of same. No different for automobiles: i.e., can't require a complete engine overhaul and detailing on a car when the customer requests an oil change, anymore than they can force you to buy a new bumper when replacing a tire, etc. And should they break and/or dent something on the car while fixing something else, then it is up to them to repair that damage and not try to pass it off onto the customer. This is the law. I am giving Breitling the benefit of the doubt, in light of the fact my request for a single part might have been "misunderstood" so far as my request came to them from an independent repair shop and not myself even though it should have been quite explanatory. (Otherwise, not acceptable, anymore than similar practices in Australia, etc. by a number of Swiss watch manufacturers resulted in the Australian competition regulators reminding them of said law, among other related issues which both the Australian and European competition regulators are currently looking into as well). Meantime, I highly recommend a CW certified watchmaker and/or member of the NAWCC. You will save time, money, get great customer service, from a highly trained independent watchmaker thus supporting local business and consumer choice, thus keeping the repair market competitive in turn. All the best

I'd advise to visit your nearest watch repair shop, because your watche's warranty is allready expired and repairs by BREITLING will cut in your wallet very deep.
Rate me, please.

Honestly I would have nobody work on my Breitling but Breitling. They go through the entire watch and tune and clean it perfectly. Well worth the money.

First, you wind the crown by turning it clockwise about 30-40 turns (the knob in the between the chrono pushers, at the side of the case; this, to start it up and get it going, your wrist movement keeping it wound from there, with a power reserve kicking in over night to keep it running while you sleep so as to be ready for you in the morning to wear and thus through such wear winding it up via your wrist movement all over again ;) . To set the time, pull out the crown out and turn it to move the hands so as to set the correct time. When done, remember to return the crown to its original position and enjoy.
