    Re: watch problem need help

    I've never read of any self-help type of solutions for a watch that far off.
    There are lots of posts where ppl. stress about date changes 10-15 mins. off either way, which is silly really.
    4 a.m. though is obviously unacceptable.
    Would definitely be a warranty fix.
    Good luck!

    4am is way off. some watches change from 11pm to 1am and are fine. 4am for the date change is wrong.

    I would actually ask over in the Breitling forum, so someone with the same model can compare. Just so you know when it should change. Or if there is some 'trick' involed with a particular watch. Some of my Orients and others do not complete day/date change over until 4am. Other watches I have snap to the new date right at midnight. If it worked normally before and has now changed than you should send it in for repair. Good luck with the Breitling.

    I'm sorry your having a problem with it. I don't know what cause a lazy date change. I'm sure it was designed to change at midnight. let us know what they did to repair it. keep a stiff upper lip, and while its away being fixed, you should buy another watch to keep you company.
