I recently purchased my first Breitling and am absolutely in love with it. I took a trip to Puerto Rico and did not want to bring the watch with me so I left it home and as a result it stopped (automatic). It died between 8 pm and 3 am so therefore the date should not be adjusted as well as moving the time backwards (first automatic watch I’ve seen this.. usually it is just date adjustment that should be highly avoided). Anyway, I went to move the time forward manually to get out of the danger zone and accidentally I moved the time backwards about 15 minutes with one turn before I realized and switched back to moving it forward. I didn’t hear any damage done and I didn’t force anything on the crown so I am unsure if there was any damage. Has anybody had any experience with such a thing? How would I know if there is any damage? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.uc browser shareit appvn

The crown has two positions, one for altering the time (pulled right out) and one for altering the date (half way out). If the crown was fully pulled out when you were changing the time then no damage can be done. If you were trying to alter the date in the date change crown position (half way out) in the danger zone then damage can be done. It sounds to me like you were only moving the hands with crown the fully out so you're fine as the hands would not move in the date change position, only the date wheel would move..
