Question about Breitling Aerospace 455 Wrist Watch

2 Answers

Backlight for my breitling aerospace has stopped working, otherwise watch is working perfectly.

It was just serviced july 2011 and I would like to avoid a costly shipping/insurance fee to return to the service center if it only requires a simple repair (ie-replace batter.) The watch is no longer under warranty. Suggestions??

SOURCE: Stopped working and all digital figures displayed!

If the display is not dim the battery is probably OK. Try removing the battery, test it anyway, and after a minute or two replace it (I'd use a new one anyway) and see if the problem is cleared. Sometimes just power cycling will "reboot" the watch. If that doesn't do it I'm afraid it will need to visit a Breitling service center.

Every mechanical watch must be serviced within 2 - 7 years depending on what movement is is fitted.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and as for overhaul ( this is how we call full service of any watch).
Reasons for stopping can be numerous, but usually it is gummed oil, dust particles, and wear and tear.

Rate me, please.

SOURCE: how can i replace the battery on a Breitling

I suggest that you got to "www.breitling.com" and after getting past the pretty pictures you click on "maintenance centers" and find the one nearest you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

One fairly frequent cry for help is because the owner can't get the back on again. Also since watches frequently include gaskets to keep water out, difficulty can be experienced in fitting the back and maintaining the seal.

SOURCE: It's very difficult to adjust my breitling

Normally this is from the crown and case tube being dirty. This slows down the rate at which the crown can be turned so the switch inside cannot get triggered to move the hands quicker. Sometimes the turning action can also be so that the switches do not actually 'see' the crown was turned and so the hands do not move.

The solution is to have your watch serviced.

Hope this helps.

I need a pin and buckle for 45/7053 m1099 watch.


Hello, Jennifer -

Are you asking about a band for the Armitron M1099 women's wrist watch?

By "pin and buckle" are you referring to the closure part of the watch band and/or one of the thin metal rods which attach the watch band to one end of the watch?

If I am correct in my guess about a replacement band or parts of a band for an Armitron M1099 women's wrist watch, if you have not already contracted Armitron directly about the needed parts, this is the link to the Armitron Watches web page regarding Service Centers:
https://www.armitron.com/pages/service-centers

Near the bottom of that web page, you will see a list of authorized service centers. I suggest you make a telephone call to one nearest where you reside and ask about the replacement parts you need before sending it (insured) for repair. Note: Also ask about the estimated repair cost.

Best wishes.

My wife's Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch is running very slow. It was cleaned approx 7 years ago and seemed to run properly. I phoned the NY service center which quoted a $600 basic cleaning fee which seems...


Hi , I am sorry to say that a rolex requires servicing on a regular basis . Every 3 - 5 years would be advised . If you consider that your watch is a delicate machine that may be working 24 hours a day for years then its not unreasonable that it needs servicing. Over time the fine oils dry and degrade , they need replacing , and parts can become damaged .
As to cost , this is a skilled job . To service a rolex in the correct way requires not only skill ,but the correct tooling and equipment . Also the materials used must be genuine rolex , this is costly . Your accredited service centre will then provide a 2 year guarantee .
All in all the price of $600.00 reflects the labour of a skilled man and his investment in gaining rolex status .
There will be cheaper alternatives but beware as they will probably not be rolex trained and wont be using original materials .

My seiko is keeping good time but the second hand jumps two seconds then hesitates for what seems to be a second then skips two seconds again


There are three solutions for this problem, contingent upon the model:

With both instances, this is a power saving / low charge / low battery feature of the timepiece.

1) Is your Seiko watch a Kinetic / Solar model? If so, your watch contains a capacitor. The capacitor may be bad, OR if you have not been wearing it on as regular a basis, wind the watch (Kinetic) vigorously for 5 minutes, and if the second hand returns to normal function, the capacitor is most likely fine. If is is a Solar model, expose it to sunlight for 4-6 hours or incandescent light for 24 hours and see if this resolves the problem.

2) Else: if this is a standard battery operated watch, take your watch to an authorized Seiko repair center, or Certified Master Horologist. Make sure that the Seiko Repair Center is using Seiko batteries, else make sure they are installing Energizer only - these two batteries will not leak in your movement. Avoid other batteries at all cost, many of them will leak and ruin your movement.

3). If these solutions do not work, and you have not had your watch serviced in the last 3 to 5 years, you need to service the movement. See the aforementioned parties to begin the process.

4) If your watch is water resistant, and/or you plan on wearing it in the water, make sure to have your watch water tested by the appropriate aforementioned professional to ensure it will withstand proper dynamic and static pressure at the appropriate depths.

Day is not changing correctly, getting stuck


Your watch is a complicated machine.The date change requires a tooth on a wheel to engage in order to advance the date ring.This can be a simple fault or may require a new part and a service.If the watch is 4 or more years old then its due a service and this is a good time to resolve the date change issue.If the watch is under guarantee return it to an Omega stockist.

Unfortunately watch service is often calculated based on the value of the watch, as insurance, and quality/cost of materials and spares and tools are factors. With the correct lubricant there should be no reason why a quality watch should need that particular job done so regularly, but a 4/5-yearly service is not a bad idea at all, as most problems with this sort of watch can be avoided with regular maintenance. Hope this helps :)
