I’m wondering if anyone here has a pricing list/cost sheet for a full service including bracelet and case refinishing for an emergency with titanium bracelet?

If there’s no hidden fees and that’s the actual cost, I would say that’s quite reasonable.

By the way, I LOVE THE EMERGENCY! Outside of my budget; but wow, what a cool piece. What year?

The emergency has a specific price.
At the Breitling site you can put The model or serial number at The services.

Correct, I put the Emergency model number into the service request box and those are the prices that came up. Obviously Breitling may come up with a few extras......

It’s always more than “the basic” fee. Well 90% of the time at least.

Anyone know what the timing is for a full service at Breitling USA? It’s been a few years since I had a full service, I remember it being several months. Was just curious if anyone has had a full service recently?

Not any more sadly, polishing is an additional £149 (iirc)

My Chronomat Airborne just had warranty work down which included a full service and the turnaround time was just over 6 weeks. Warranty work may get prioritized though, at least it used to, so my guess would be at least 8 weeks.

You don't need to take it to Breitling.

You can take it to a reputable Swiss watchmaker.

In UK at least that doesn't work - if they need Breitling parts they can't get them.
