Case Ref


Quality Breitling Calibre 17 (based on ETA 2824) Automatic Movement, with centre seconds, quickset date and hacking seconds.
Setting The Watch

Gently unscrew and out pops the crown, it will go into position one and the Watch will continue to tick. This is your quickset date position so if for some reason you need to set the Date, just gently scroll the crown Clockwise and the date will change. 
Pull the Crown out again into Position two and you will notice that the Watch will come to a halt, this is called hacking seconds, so you can accurately set the time, when your desired time comes around push the crown back in and the Watch will power away again.

Please ensure you push the crown back in and screw to the case when finished.


The Movement is wonderful and Clean whilst ticking away strongly and keeping excellent time.
