My B50 Cockpit has been working fine since the original problem when it was less than a month old and the crown and stem fell out, and it was serviced by Breitling in Switzerland (the only place that could service it at that time) . The only problem I have had was a charger issue about 8 months ago, when the watch got hot. When I first got it back from Switzerland , it was running "slow", about 1 second every 8 or 10 months! It is now 3 years about 3 1/2 years old and has not been serviced; accuracy is about 1 second slow about every 4 to 5 weeks, well within specs, I believe.

I generally subscribe to the idea "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," and, since the electronic warranty is 2 years which coincides with the water resistance check requirement, I have not sent it in for any kind of servicing.

Has anyone had a "minor" or "major" service overhaul on their B50l? At what age? What result with respect to the returned watch's accuracy and the refinishing/buffing of the titanium case, etc.

Hasn't ANYONE had servicing? I'm surprised that there is no reply. Am I positing this in the wrong place?

Hi there.

I've not got myne serviced yet. It's keeping good time and I don't use it under water.

I think I'll send it in for service if..
1. It stops keeping good time, or
2. If there are any battery charging issues, or
3. If there are any issues with how long the battery charge lasts.

Hi. Thanks for posting. I share your feelings. Mine is now 4 years old, and it now about 4 years old. It has gotten a LITTLE less accurate, according to my resetting history. Breitling specs are 2.1 sec per month + or -, and mine seems to be about 1.5 sec slow per month. When it came back from the factory, it was about 1 sec every three months! I certainly can't complain, and, in fact, I could be off somewhat by the simple fact of not starting exactly at the synchronization of the official time clock.

Anyway, if anyone out there is listening, what is YOUR actual service experience as to the repair process and accuracy after servicing?
