“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

“9 years and three repairs two full over hauls ”

Written on: 01/05/2014 by tmb2014 (1 review written)

I have owned a Crosswind Special for 9 years and have had it in to repair for two full over hauls once for poor crown that leaked. broken bracelet pin. That is a lot of repairs for a top of the line watch. each time it goes in it is about 8 to 12 weeks for it to come back and the bills are adding up. full rebuilds are about 875.00 each. bracelet pin was 75.00 and repaired crown for leaking after a full over haul was cover under warranty but still watch was in service for 8 weeks. watch sit… 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

I bought a Breitling Chrono Quartz from Posh jeweller Mappin and Webb Guildford. Watch stops and needs a service for £500 and is away for over 6 weeks!

“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

“Had to send my mechanical Breitling Blackbird watch...”

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

“Overall I've been very happy with my B1 however...”

Written on: 29/10/2010

Overall I've been very happy with my B1 however Breitling service has been another matter altogether. Exclusive brand, exclusive customer service? More like Ryanair than Rolex.

I had a small amount of condensation developed inside the watch so I immediately stopped wearing it and took it to a Breitling retailer for a service. The service cost £101 and took months to complete. Upon getting the watch home I noticed that the LCD functionality did not work as it should. You rotate the crown and… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2013

Yes I am warned. My experience is as bad. All they do is pressure test , say it's ok then it's all the customers fault and they charge 1K to repair. They are shamed and there is no way out. If you are reading this and considering Breitling, DON'T ! look at all the problems people report and the service just rips people off

Written on: 19/08/2009 by Taylott (173 reviews written)

I love my Breitling Men's Watch (superocean professional). Solid, good looking and functional it's everything you want from a watch. Worn with a rubber divers strap it works best as a weekend watch, where its happy being bashed about a bit and submerged to whatever depth you can take it.
As its a chronograph i'm not convinced it keeps time as well as a cheaper electronic movement but the feeling of quality and the value it retains make this the version to go for. Overall a great watch, but… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/05/2009

I have a Breitling SuperOcean Steelfish XP891 which is rated to a water resistant depth of 6600 feet. Obviously, this is a tad bit deeper than I care to go, but it is reassuring to know that if I do they will find a still working watch on my body. The watch is solid and I do mean solid. It weighs approximately 225 grams and is 45mm across. It has a most interesting blue face that will assume slightly different hues depending upon the lighting conditions. The watch, like all models since… Read Full Review

“The watch has been extremely unreliable and even more...”

Written on: 10/11/2008 by ttovsky (1 review written)

The watch has been extremely unreliable and even more disappointing has been the customer service offered to me by Breitling USA. In 10 years of owning this pricey timepiece, I've had to return the watch for EITHER general service OR a complete overhaul (two times) five times. So do the math...in 10 years the watch has gone back for service every two years. In my opinion, this is disgraceful and NOT the sign of an immaculately crafted watch

As much as I still think Breitling makes an extremely… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2007 by Analysis (5 reviews written)

My wife bought me my Breitling as a present for out 1st wedding anniversary. Shocked, impressed and If I'm really honest was a little disturbed that she would spend so much money on a watch. I was always quite happy to spend up to £1k on a watch. I always though £2-3-4K watches were overpriced and unnecesary expenditure. Not now!

Just like cars, homes, prescious gems, it seems you really do get what you pay for. My watch looks fantastic is instantly recognisable and doesn't come with any… Read Full Review
