Took my breitling in for servicing as it was not holding a charge for more than a few hours, was losing a few seconds each day and it came back from servicing polished but with the same issues.

I don’t know about Breitling specifically (never worked with them, but I have worked with other brands for repairs), and there are several things that could have happened:
- the store that sent it to them for servicing didn’t document the problem properly
- Breitling wasn’t able to reproduce the problem (are you fully, manually winding the watch or are you just wearing the watch and hoping that’s enough to get it to fill power?). If they can’t make the problem happen they just return the watch.
- Breitling just screwed up
- There was more than one thing wrong with the watch and Breitling only partially fixed the problem (the service departments see a ton of watches, and they don’t necessarily care deeply about your one piece. They need to be as efficient as possible, so they just do the necessary service required to fix the stated problem).
- Are you keeping the watch near strong magnets? Perhaps they fixed it and you immediately broke it again upon receiving it.

I just reread your post...Breitlings, I believe, aren’t rated to be super accurate. It’s likely your watch is performing within spec (probably something like +15/-10 or if it’s COSC it’ll be +6/-4). They aren’t going to waste time and money on a watch that’s technically performing within spec.

Thanks - this was very helpful. I don’t keep it near magnets so I don’t think that is a cause for concern. However, I did not wind the watch manually and just hoped it would fill on its own so that could be part of the problem.

In any case, the watch is back with breitling so hopefully they can diagnose the issue (if any) correctly.

Unless you are storing it in a winder with proper settings I am strongly assuming it it because you need to manually wind it a bit. Unless you wear it every day and move around a lot then you probably wound down its reserve a bit here and there until this occurred

Thank you all for your input and advice. Breitling confirmed they did make mistakes in the initial servicing and had to perform a “movement adjustment”. It is going through quality control and will be ready early next week.

What’s the perception of Rolex? Will someone everyone look down on a Rolex bc its a “beginner’s luxury watch”? Any recommendations if it’s a good one? Context: joining an MBB, undergrad

My grandmother gave me her Rolex, which was purchased at a high-end department store in Asia about 15 years ago. She has tossed the original box and papers in downsizing (yes, crazy, but she reasoned that she’d never be reselling it anyway… we’ve had a chat about it but what’s done is done). Is there any way to get that information another way?
