thanks! I jus saw Bambino 4th Generation … it looks fabulous
No Problem.

I bought the one with champagne coloured face.

It has the look of the wall clock hang in the wall during 70s / 80s.

If you've seen the feature film, then you know that the wristwatch gifted to Murph Cooper by her father is much more than just a great-looking, vintage-inspired military piece. Handed to Murph by Joseph Cooper, a NASA pilot, right as he is about to embark on a mission to a faraway galaxy, the watch is a totem of the love between a father and a daughter and, in the end, the method through with the story reaches its climax. Leaving the watch with her, Joseph tells Murph that upon his return from the mission the two can compare the time on their respective watches to see how his intergalactic travel may have caused them to diverge.

Swatch Fly Magic. Think announced today or yesterday.

Sistem 51 based, can't seem to find much info yet, but doesn't seem serviceable like Sistem 51..

But the movement is based off the Sistem 51 which I recall was not designed to be serviced.

I guess they could adopt a movement replacement approach.

Hi guys, just wanted to share my bad experience buying a Breitling Navitimer from watches of Switzerland (paragon outlet). Recently purchased this piece before CNY. I'll try my best to keep this short.

Purchased this luxury piece from their outlet the Friday before CNY. Within a few days, I realized that the watch was running super fast (gaining 5 secs everyminute), contacted the outlet and they told me to bring it down to the Breitling service center myself to get it checked out.

I took my own time off work to travel down to the service center (which was only open during weekdays working hours) and the service center said that the watch had an out of position hairspring, which was usually caused by excessive winding or hard knocks to the watch, all of which was not typical of a new watch. I am certain I did not cause any of this. They said after repairing it will be 'as good as new' but repair time takes 2 weeks.

Also, service center noted some "fine lines on the caseback, bezel, clasp and case", which they said was typical for any watch put on display - this i'm not so angry about i guess.

Hearing this I was pretty pissed and frustrated at the authorized dealer for selling me such a product which was admittedly defective in the first place. The authorized dealer said that they are looking into it but it's been a couple of days and still no reply.

My question here is what would you do if put in a similar situation? Right now the problem is fixable but will take 2 weeks and it should be 'as good as new' as informed by the breitling service center. But is it really logical for me to pay so much money to the AD to buy a watch that is defective and take my own time to bring it to service myself? Should a refund be in order? What other forms of recourse would you seek?

Let me know your thoughts, thanks!

Every watch, no matter how expensive, has a chance of being a lemon. It's hard to say when the problem was introduced, and difficult to determine who was the cause - could very well be Breitling, rather than WoS.

I'm not sure it is reasonable to expect the retailer to be able to check every sold watch to ensure that it is running on time.

But was the discount substantial? Did you get a display set with higher discount (since you don't seem fazed by the fine lines?)? Actually, why didn't you ask the retailer if they can give you a new piece right away if there's stock, if it's clear that you did not cause the problem?

That said, my caveat is that I've never purchased any luxury piece from a retailer, all of mine are second hand pieces so not sure if they would swap out a piece for you.
