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.

Watch looses time. Breitling 1884


It sounds like your either not moving enough to wind it (try winding manually) or it needs a service (gear oil gone sticky) to free it up.

Keeping 2008 breitling cockpit watch running


You have to wind the watch till it is fully wound (significant resistance should be felt).
It doesn't matter how many times you wind it (1 or even 40) - what matters is the strength of the spring.
Do as follows:
At any time in the morning wind the watch up till you feel there is no more winding left (should be quite tough). Memorize the time you did it.
Leave the watch (or wear it) till it stops completely.
Count the hours your watch did work (from the time you wound it).
Now you know exact power reserve for your watch.
It is advised to wind the watch 2-3 hours before the power reserve is gone.

Rate me.
, please.

Breitling problem


This usually occur when the hairspring is disturbed ( some grease, dust particle, etc). Can be magnetized as well.
You need to find your nearest watch repairer and ask to overhaul your watch. After that it will run like new.

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.
