Just a curious about experiences with Breitling servicing. I have a originally owned Colt chrono quartz that I sent in to BUSA for a battery change by Diamonds Direct. The estimate is $499.89!
History on watch is I have had the battery replaced 1 time previously at the service center and it has been packed in storage for the last 5yrs so has seen limited use.
The preliminary description is it needs a full service and new hands due to its age (illuminate fade?), and a battery. I have asked for a complete explanation but that seems like a huge investment for such limited wear time.
So watch came back, looks good but I have a question. All I got was a black booklet explaining why I should do maintenance and a receipt from Diamonds Direct. I was surprised the did not stamp anything proving certification and/or a work order print out explaining that they performed and replaced for the $538.
I inquired about this and was told BUSA tracks the watch history by the s/n. I found this kind of odd.
I planned to sell the watch before I wear it again
