“Dream to nightmare”

Written on: 29/04/2015 by Nicke34 (1 review written)

I bought what I thought would be my dream watch. A superocean heritage! Beautiful watch to look upon and after two years of indecision decided to treat myself whilst on holiday and a preferable exchange rate. Wearing the watch each day for two weeks I was distressed with the time keeping. It gained approximately 9 seconds a day! Not to worry I thought, the international warranty should cover this and indeed sending it back to the UK authorised servicer via my local authorised dealer the fault… Read Full Review

“Poor timepieces”

Written on: 26/04/2015 by Enrique283 (1 review written)

Me and my partner bought one model and within months I it had broken. Eventually the shop agreed to replace watch but I added another £5,000 sterling and bought the best model in the shop. Within 9 months the date was broken and I lost my watch again over Xmas period for a total of 8 weeks. 2 months on and the watch is now not synchronised with the date and it has to go back again. To pay £10,000 and have to have two repairs done within one year is disgusting. The date changes before… Read Full Review

“Poor quality, terrible customer service.”

Written on: 21/04/2015

My fiancé bought me a Breitling colt for an engagement present. Less than a year later the number '6' fell off the face!! After sending the watch back to Breitling, expecting an apology for the poor quality, a repaired watch and maybe a show of goodwill such as a new strap or free service for my trouble. Sadly what I actually got was a claim from Breitling that the damage could only have possibly been caused by a heavy impact, not true at all, and that they will not repair the watch under… Read Full Review

“Poor watch design, failing service & unable to keep...”

Written on: 02/04/2015 by Elianna378 (1 review written)

Within the first year of buying my chronometre watch it needed to be serviced, fortunately this was within warrentee. Was gaining 3 minutes a week. After service, the watch was still gaining 3 mintues a week and has remained so ever after. Only change from the service was losing the 'date change' functionality, I could only change the time. Less than a year later, one of the four 'claws' that sits proud on the screen caugth some fabric and pulled back. I immediately took it off and put it in… Read Full Review

“Service Rip Off”

Written on: 09/12/2014

I paid £5000 for my Breathing watch. After two years this 'chronograph' was losing 5 mins a week. I spent £400 on a service, the watch was away for three months!!! It came back nicely polished and ... losing 5 mins a week!!! Breilting have refused to correct this, only offering me another service at half price. Why would I pay for a service that doesn't correct the timekeeping and to lose the watch for weeks on end? I will sell this heap of junk and get the Apple! No wonder statement… Read Full Review

“Always broken”

Written on: 28/11/2014 by Jimenez465 (1 review written)

I bought a breitling watch for my husbands 50th birthday. Within 3 years it had already cost £400 on service & repair. Now another 3 years on they have just submitted a repaire quote of £1030 as the watch cost £2400 I feel it is ridiculous. I wish I had never bought it, and cannot possibly recommend the brand to anyone. If your looking for a statement watch, which holds its value, keeps good time and good service, please do not choose a BREITLING !!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Bad Watch - Bad Service”

Written on: 24/06/2014 by Cowanfj457 (1 review written)

At 67 years old I have owned many watches. This is the most expensive one that I've ever purchased and it's the only one that has to be periodically "overhauled". You have to send the watch to them (or an authorized service center which are few in number)) for a battery replacement only to find that they won't replace the battery without a complete overhaul - $380 and 2 months ! Your watch has to meet their standards !!!! The only option is to have the watch returned unusable. Stay with a $20… Read Full Review

“Breitling Aerospace failure”

Written on: 24/10/2013

I purchased a Breitling Aerospace Titanium, which worked fine for a while. Then both lcd screens failed. They are just blank. The hands still work, but to fix it costs $600. No way. A $10 Casio wouldn't fail like this thing did. The company hides behind their jewelers and won't offer any direct support. And their jewelers are sky high in their repair costs. Strange that the most expensive watches are made to the worst standards… Read Full Review

“plagued with issues... not reliable”

Written on: 13/10/2013 by AlexWheeler (1 review written)

If you're looking for a reliable timepiece look else ware. I purchased the Breitling Continental special edition 6 years ago. The first watch was replaced because of a critical mechanical error and i have had many issues with the kinetic mechanism (kept stopping). My latest issue is that the hour indicator has fallen off and is jamming the hour hands (not impressed with the build quality at this stage). I have been quoted £550+ to fix this or £1k+ if I want an overhaul. Great brand… Read Full Review

Spiderman69's Response to clizardo21's Review

Written on: 21/01/2014

Hi, Its awesome to hear the same story from someone else - though please believe me, I feel your pain. I have had mine since 2003 and it has stopped working no less than 4 times and not run since 2010 when I gave up on it. During this time it has had two free of charge 'goodwill' services, the last taking three months of badgering and eventually writing the CEO before the Swiss service centre agreed to overhaul it for free. I love the look of the watch, but it is advertised as something it is not . I have colleagues with rolex who have never even had a service done. It is sadly time to say goodbye to my Blackbird and invest in a watch that is reliable and i can wear every day.

“Breitling Super Ocean”

Written on: 24/06/2013 by aquaknght (1 review written)

Bought the Breitling Super Ocean and went diving (I am a professional dive instructor 30+ years).  Noticed condensation and took it back to store I bought it. They told me I didn't tighten screw down crown (never happened to any other watch I own...all water proof). Found out NOT crown but defective "Helium Relief Valve" Breitling wants $1,256.70 to fix. NOTHING wrong with works (had checked by a very reputable jeweller). WILL NOT JUST FIX THE PROBLEM!!!! Want to do a complete overhaul despite… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2012 by DingDong11 (1 review written)

Had to send my mechanical Breitling Blackbird watch for repairs - it was never accurate, missimg a couple of minutes a week, but then got worse. The procedure will cost over £500 and will take 10 weeks. Had I known the repair prices (check on Brietling web site) and timescales I would never have bought the watch.A mechanical Rolex watch in comparison, that my friend bought always ran accurately and did not need any repairs. The repair service was awful, the watch was returned to me after about… Read Full Review
