20 Most Recent Breitling Aerospace 455 Wrist Watch Questions & Answers

Open the watch and see if you can find the all reset shunt. It may be a contact requiring to be shunted with with a jeweler's screwdriver or a contact you press on. The all reset much be done with the battery operating. This is a warm boot in this type of case. I have seen this in other models of watches. I do not know your watch, but most of the time the technology is about the same for procedures.

If you cannot get it working, simply send it to the manufacture support for service. It could be a processor fault. I have also seen this type of thing.

press button till in time mode then pull out crown wheel and rotate slowly to adjust minutes or spin quickly to adjust an hour at a time.

If the digital and hands don't agree the process for correcting this is in the manual on the link above.

Not good news.The parts are only available from Breitling and this will require the watch is sent to them.There is probably a fault on the circuit,if its out of any guarantee this will be costly.There is a UK Breitling repair centre try Breitling.com or find a good stockist.

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.

It is likely that the battery is dead.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

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

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 have seen other makes which have described how to do this but you do need the manufacturers instructions. These are frequently obtainable from their web site but in this case I couldn't find any.

However, if you go to their web site (www.breitling.com/zh/index.php#/home/), you will see on the left side of the screen a heading "maintenance centers", click on this and choose the one nearest you.

If you contact them they may be able to talk you through the procedure or send you a set of instructions.

Well if the watch is performing its functions properly then there's nothing wrong with it technically. The only way one could make it require less turns would be to custom make the necessary parts with different ratios and unless you have got lots of money to spend on that .......

usually breitlings have a screw-in crown with a gasket for diving. If you cannot pull the crown away from the case, try unscrewing it. After a little pressure to the left, the crown should begin to turn. Unscrew it carefully and you should be able to pull it out one stop for the date and all the way (note second hand stops) to set the time. Be careful pushing it back in and screwing it back down. You don't want to potentially damage the threads. The crown is back in place when you ca't screw it in any more and the "B" is straight up and down

No matter what is your watch movement (quartz or mechanical) it can be adjusted to keep time properly.
Bring it to your nearest watchmaker and the problem will be solved.
9 sec a day is far too much for Breitling.

If it is the spring that connects the watch to the lugs, It is called a spring bar. You can easily get some on ebay . Or just got o a local independent watchmakrer shouldnt charge you more than $10 to put a new set of spring bars on.

Hello Aleks,

My personal opinion:
Take it back (undo your "new" purchase).

Real watch movements DO NOT have the accuracy
of "QUARTZ" watches...!!

If you have a WARRANTEE that allows for higher
expectations... I would say TAKE IT back

Worse than dropping a few SECONDS from your
watch...you are wasting time from your LIFE tribulating over nonsense

Breitling Caliber B35 (automatic) specs: watchbase.com/breitling/caliber/b35

Movement: Automatic
Display: Analog
Diameter: 36.60
Jewels: 41
Frequency: 28800
Date: Date
Hands: Hours, Minutes, Seconds, World Time
Additionals: Chronometer

The Breitling caliber B35 is a new movement that was launched at BaselWorld 2015. It is an in-house (manufacture) movement with worldtime functions; it is also the first in-house Breitling movement not to feature a chronograph. It measures 36.6mm across at a height of 7.8mm.

If you purchased your UNITIME for accuracy
you skipped over some VASTLY SUPERIOR
quartz watches that would better suit your
EXPECTATIONS... ( for $$$ thousands less ).
Breitling Caliber B35 is a very nice movement...
(I think you need a QUARTZ... digital)...

ALL in my opinion!
