“Do not but one!”

Written on: 28/10/2016 by dannyboy112 (1 review written)

I am a pilot so thought with my wife I would buy a Breitling as she loved the watch as much as I thought I did. I live in Australia and I can tell you straight out do not buy one period! I had two Tags over ten years and not one single problem. The Breitling after 12 months just stopped so I thought no big deal its under warranty. No I had to drive 90kms to place I could return it only to be told it will be 6-8 weeks? I was never told anything about warranty times etc.when I bought it which was… Read Full Review

“SHOCKING BREITLING SERVICE !!!!!!!!”

Written on: 21/06/2016 by Nielsen1962 (1 review written)

As with many other stories & reviews of BREILING WATCHES I am reading too many are reporting shocking service, terrible repair timescales (up to a year) and 'up-selling tactics' of repairs and maintenance of such"wonderful timepieces".. My Story so far... My Superocean 42 went for a service & was losing time - it was just out of warranty so I was liable even though I felt such a quality timepiece should not be losing time. When I handed my watch to Ernest Jones in Silverburn, Glasgow for a… Read Full Review

I have just received the most appalling service from Breitling, I returned a watch with a leather strap well within the warranty period. They said it was worn - yes it has been worn for 6 months. There is a split in the strap in a position that cannot receive any mechanical stress hence - a fault. They will not even consider the possibility as the strap shows sign of wear around the buckle. This wear does not mitigate a fault in an other regions of the strap.

“Making insane profits off service!”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by 21jackson (1 review written)

I purchased my Super Avenger about 4 years ago and absolutely love it! I get countless compliments on it. 2 years ago one of the hands fell off and was essentially "floating" around. I sent it in to be repaired and they charged me $900 as they stated there were other issues. I agreed, had my watch back in 2 weeks looking as good as new. Last week, the exact same hand fell off so I sent it back to be repaired. Today I received the quote of $1232. I let them know I wasn't interested in any… Read Full Review

“Watch still not returned from Breitling after a YEAR!!!!”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by Clarewhitehead (1 review written)

I have a question wether anyone has had the same poor experience as myself?. A year ago my breitling super ocean was sent away for a routine clean which should have taken 6 weeks. 3 months later I received an email stating that my watch had internal damages due to an external impact. Both myself and Hinds are in full agreement externally the watch did not show any signs of impact especially to warrant internal damage to the parts. Also due to working in Iraq most of the year the watch itself… Read Full Review

Breiting's service is appalling, it took them 10 months to service my Breitling Emergency. Further issues with durability on calf leather strap - a suggestion was that it should only be worn once or twice a year if you wanted the strap to have any degree of longevity.

“Don't buy one!”

Written on: 14/12/2015 by msLong206 (1 review written)

I've always loved the look of the Navitimer range so I decided to spoil myself with a navitimer world. Now being a cherished owner I decided to have the watch serviced even though I was not experiencing any problems and this is where I lost faith in the whole ethos of the Breitling company. It took them four weeks just to tell me what needed doing (minor issues) and then a further 10 weeks to complete the major service. So in a year my watch has been away for for a third of that year! Imagine… Read Full Review

I have 4 Breitlng's + my wife has 2 so bought a watch for my son's 21st birthday. Terrible experience with the quality of the strap, customer service comment was that it showed signs of being worn!! - hmm - buying a watch to wear what a novel idea!!.
A split manifested itself in the strap at a point not subject to any mechanical stress. As other areas of the strap showed signs of wear this fault was not recognised as a warranty issue.
The watch has had no more than 6 months of wear and they propose a cost of £178 to replace the strap like for like - £32 per month for a leather strap!!

“Rip off”

Written on: 26/07/2015 by Dalev53 (1 review written)

I've owned this watch for about three years. For the last several months it's been running slow. I sent it in to be looked at and sure enough, $850 to repair. A $7000 watch that needs $850 less than three years later??? No thanks. First and last breitling I'll ever own. I had a $1500 TAG for ten years and it never gave me a problem… Read Full Review

Breitling's warranty is not worth the paper it isn't printed on. Life subject to "fair wear and tear" is quoted as being anything from 2 months to 10 years for a leather strap. If we take a mid point of say 3-5 years (benefit of doubt offered) - how can they suggest 6 months is a reasonable life time? - this was quoted today. They said the issue is "the watch has been worn" - I find this totally bemusing that anyone should buy an expensive watch to not wear it!!

“Horrendous experience ”

Written on: 20/07/2015 by DesiraeJohnston134 (1 review written)

Was bought a Navitimer 01 by my fiance as a wedding present just 3 days later it had completely stopped working. I sent it in for repair and what a surprise the fault is mine because of a very small mark on the strap / shoulder which has completely stopped the watch from working. Now it seems to me either: 1 - All breitling watches are of such a poor quality that a small knock can completely break it or 2 - the watch is faulty. I then do some research and find 50-60 complaints on the… Read Full Review

I asked for a supporting analytic report from an independent expert and it was refused. Breitling do not provide any supporting documentation for a customer services decision, other then the managers 15 years with the company.

“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

Apparently consumer protection laws do not apply to Breitling, "fair wear and tear", "fitness for purpose" are alien concepts to Breitling as is the wording of their 2 year global warranty against manufacturing defects has exclusions that are not specified.

“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

I have a similar issue with my Breitling Evolution, I was intending to send it in for a service but the level of care I have recently received from Breitling makes me reluctant to ever deal with the company again.

“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

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

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
