    I have very nice breitling 769 that has one issue. The bezel turns but the slide rule only turns some of the time and it seems to be getting worse. I have put it up until I get this issue fixed
    What I am wanting to know is this a common issue with these old chronomat watches and is it a difficult problem to fix. Thank for your input.

    Re: Breitling 769 slide rule issue.

    quite common, some of the bezels are slightly too wide (or the sliderule insert OD slightly too small), so they do not hold it securely, a tiny amount of glue applied by a watchmaker solves that.

    Thank you fred.I was hoping it was a easy fix. Going to send to mark & Teresa H. But only movement clean and oil replace crystal and fix slide rule issue. Will state do not touch dial, hands or case.you probably no which watch I am talking about. Thanks again.
