Question about Breitling Navitimer World 715 A24322 Watch

1 Answer

I have a navitimer world which i bought second hand a couple of months ago, but it seems to be losing time, it loses a minute or 2 a day, and every few days i need to reset the time,i wear it all day and take it off during the night,i am wondering if the self winding movement is sufficient for it or should i be winding it manually every day. Thanks Jimmy

Without seeing the inside works (movement) of your new (to you) watch and its parts, it's impossible to tell exactly what is going on, but no need to worry, as that's what competent watchmakers are for. Probably just needs a new spring, which wear over time due to many factors, including temperature, shock and corrosion. Basically, when you wind up any mechanical watch (whether automatic or hand-wound, regardless of age), you're tightening the spring which in turn is what powers up the watch (powering up the gears as it returns to its original position--i.e., unwinds, accuracy dependent thus on the spring among other factors). Sounds to me like it just needs a routine service, mechanical watches being no different than are automobiles, which require regular service as well. In the case of a watch, this will entail a cleaning, fresh oil and regulation, with old springs often simply swapped out for a new ones at that time by a watchmaker; routine services are a standard procedure which can be performed by any competent independent watchmaker, and don't cost a lot either. Most watch manufacturers recommend such service be carried out every 5 years or so, and while some can go longer (especially if not worn daily, same as a car when it comes to oil changes/service intervals), it's important to remember to service your mechanical time pieces which, if you do, will provide you with decades of reliable time keeping. All the best.

SOURCE: WATCH ON DESKFOR 24 HOURS

When a watch is on a desk, the balance wheel is vertical, when you are wearing it the balance wheel horizontal.

Has the watch been dropped onto a hard surface?

If the balance wheel bearing is worn or has suffered a large shock, then the shaft may move in its bearings or the bearings damaged, which may give the problem you decscribe.

Take it to a watch repairer to have it adjusted or repaired.

My omega deville ladies prestige quartz is losing time. There is no second hand on the watch and the minute hand seems to tick every 10 secs or so. It has just had a new battery replaced by omega...


Yes. The minute hand ticking every 10 seconds is normal. Losing time is either battery or a movement malfunction. Only a trained watchmaker (or presumably Omega) can determine which. Take it back to Omega

My A24322 is not working. Pl let me know how to get this started. Is this an automatic watch or a winding watch?


Your watch is an automatic (self winding) watch which can be started by swinging it gently from side to side for some minutes to wind the spring up.

For details see their web site by inserting the following link into your search engine http://www.breitling.com/en/index.php#/models/navitimer/navitimer-world/.

Self winders rely on being used to keep them wound and operate best if used every day.

The digital display of my Breightling Navtimer does not match the minute hand on the watch, it is out by about 4 minutes. How do I synchronize the time?


If you go to http://www.breitling.com/en/index.php#/bwt/ you will see "download ....world time". This is not the usual user instructions but a program that runs on your PC.

I have not tried it but this may be of help. If not, contact Breitling and ask them.

(I am envious, it looks a smart watch!)

Watch erratic. Slows suddenly between days of working well.


Sounds like a failing battery to me. Its very common for a watch to loose time when battery needs to be changed.

New watch is losing 5 to 15 minutes a day


This could be that the battery is slow. Newer swiss watches have a indicator in the movement of the watch that makes the sweep second hand skip every few seconds to indicate that the battery is slow. On regular japan made watches the watch just simply starts slowing down. Your watch could be new but the battery in it could have a long shelf life.
