    Breitling Warranty Check-Up - What to expect?

    Hi,

    I have a Transocean with a electronic warranty card date of August 2015, so according to the manual, its due for a free check-up in order to keep the 5 year movement warranty. Do you guys know what to expect in terms of timing and turnaround? Should I bring the maintenance book as well and they will stamp it, or jsut the watch and the electronic card?

    Thanks in advance.

    My advice is to send the watch to BUSA yourself, just include a copy of the receipt and be sure to make sure its safely packaged for shipping.
    Breitling require the WR test (to keep 5 year warranty) but they also recommend a general maintenance service every two years - look it up on their website for full details. Even if you opt just for the WR test you'll probably not have your watch back for a month or so is my guess.

    Just to follow up (and in case anyone has the same question), the process was super easy. Walked into the Breitling boutique in NYC and sat down in the upstairs waiting area. The salesperson brought the watch to the watch expert inside to test. We chatted for about 5 minutes before the watch was brought back out with the test completed, confirming that no maintenance was required. A receipt was provided and they confirmed that the electronic information was updated.

    All in all an easy and quick experience. Also tried on a blue Navitimer and it was gorgeous.

    I too, live close enough to the NYC Boutique to have them do the two year checkup. Like you said a most pleasant experience and a wonderful opportunity to try on as many Breitlings as your heart desires!

    I'm close to NYC as well and I'll be due in the winter for a 2 year checkup... did you schedule this in advance or just wander in? I'd rather do that then send it in, even though BUSA HQ is literally down the street from me.
    In the collection:
    Breitling SuperOcean Heritage 42 with Ocean Classic Bracelet
    Omega Speedmaster Automatic 3150.50
    Guess WaterPro Chronograph 42mm (whole lot of history)

    In the garage:

    2013 Audi A4 6MT Sport Package with a few modifications

    Just wandered in, no appointments at all. Great artwork there as well. And yes, plenty of watches to try on.

    Cool, good to know. Did they charge you or was it a courtesy thing?

    No charge - all you need is the warranty card and the watch. It's mandatory to keep the 5 year warranty updated.

    Great, thanks man. I'll find time to get in there this winter, maybe take my better half to Churrascaria Plataforma while we're in the city. Awesome restaurant.
