Went to put this on the other day and noticed the dial had rotated. It's been around the world with me, but has never been dropped... but even if it had, I would still expect things like this to stay in place. I searched for rotated dials online and came across a few Breitlings that have had this same issue (one instance on this site). I get a one-off situation, but multiple instances of this? Serious BS.. Someone on this site mentioned selling theirs "as is" because the price to send it in would not be worth it. I'm not sure what to do with this now. Does anyone have any suggestions? Sell it? Fix it? If fix, what would you think the repair would be? And how is something so messed up not automatically covered by Breitling? I own two right now, but do not see myself buying another., unless their customer service department somehow makes it up to me. Thanks for any help.

The dial feet have broken off, Breitling will probably tell you it needs a new dial which would make it a four figure fix with the mandatory service. Can't tell you what you should do.

Yikes, thanks anyway. We have a Breitling boutique here. They're probably salivating already, awaiting my arrival.

I think you could have a claim under the "not fit for purpose" rule. I find it amazing that a design defect like this would not be covered outside of normal warranty.

It would be interesting to hear the Breitling dealer/service centre's comments and if unfavourable I would seek legal advice assuming you purchased it new.
