Their web site does not give any user manuals but most watches change the date by pulling out the crown to position 2 (1 is the normal home position, 3 is fully out and 2 is inbetween the two) and rotate the crown to change date.

This quality of watch may require you to turn the crown wheel anticlockwise before pulling it out (extra seal).

If this does not work them go to http://www.breitling.com/en/index.php#/models/aeromarine/chrono-colt/ and using the menu on the left, locate their nearest service center and contact them. I fell sure that they will be only too happy to explain the procedure for changing the date.

My Breitling Chronograp he evolution changes the date at 3:00pm and not at 12:00am why ?


sometimes watch movements are set to change date later to allow for other function to happen at midnight. i would contact Breitling directly the money you have spent getting one they should be able to confirm if this is correct.

Unable to reset brietling colt, even after ajusting stem to 1st and 2nd postions.


mcdevito75 here, Let"s hope your description of the problem with your watch is wrong. Try this sequence, First, wind your watch, the automatic continues to wind your watch when you where it but to get it started, wind it 20--30 times. 2nd, your crown locks down, turn the stem Clockwise to un-lock it (the stem) now pull the stem all the way out then back in 1/2 way to set date. Set DATE to DATE before the real date turn crown counterclockwise. Now pull out crown all the way and turn clockwise to set the DATE and time (real Date) push the crown back in and turn counterclockwise to lock the crown. If this doesn"t work, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this adjustment.

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.

I've got a breitling superocean chrono and want to set the time, how do i do this?


Keep in mind that I dont have the watch in my hand... :-)

If this is an authentic Breitling...

You should have 2 buttons on the right with the crown between them. The crown screws down so you need to unscrew it before you attempt to set! Once unscrewed with gentle pressure pull the crown out. There should be 2 clicks, pull to 2nd click or furthest distance from case. That should be the time setting mode. Turn clockwise until the date changes then set your time. To change the date push back to the 1st click and that should be the date set mode. One direction will be for day and the opposite will be date. I believe that if you pull the crown back to 2nd click and push your buttons that should change the subdials for chrono. You might need to push both buttons at the same time.

Ive set Breitlings before but they arent a common watch we see. Most people dont use the Chrono so if the directions dont work for setting those then I wouldnt worry too much about it! Not many people are going to notice those. :-) Also be so very careful if its a real Breitling as they are a very expensive to fix! :-)

***DONT FORGET TO SCREW THE CROWN BACK DOWN OR YOU WILL GET WATER INSIDE THE WATCH!***

Where can I get an instruction manual for my Breitling Watch?


You can't. At least not with out some effort. Breitling is paranoid about rip-offs.By that I mean someone gets an original manual and boxes it with a fake breitling and.....WA LA.....rip-off.

The best way to get one is click the link below and locate a service center nearest you and get it though them.

Most owners won't part with theirs and they are difficult to scan so it's about your best/only option.

Good choice by the way I don't know what model you have but I love my Colt Chrono.
Hope this helps.

What battery number and type for a colt chrono


Hi,
Depends on the year. Google however is your friend Google Breitling Source and the watch type and see which year yours is.
Assuming its a 2006 to 2010 model it takes a 394 battery. I suggest a google to Breitling source and look in the watch archives there.

Consider sending it to breitling UK, you have a watch worth at least many hundreds of pounds that is waterproof. If you nip down the local muppets he will change the battery and charge you GBP20 not GBP70 but he will not change the case seals or pressure test the watch to ensure the seals are doing their job. Worst case you write off the watch when it gets wet or when you next get sweaty which is the same thing.
Specify you want the battery change service only and thats what Breitling do.

Good luck whatever you do.

Hi snapper,

I suppose when you're setting the time on your watch, passing the midnight marker the date changes. In that case you can go to the date funcion and reset the date.
