This is not what I would expect from paying such a large amount of cash for the watch; assuming that this would last a lifetime without any problems.
If I send this off for servicing/repairs, surely Breitling should pay for this to be sorted out as the automatic mechanism inside clearly has stopped functioning as it should. Perhaps I should sell this watch and get a Rolex.!!
A mechanical watch is like a car - loads of moving parts with exceptionally small tolerances. Correctly serviced at regular intervals a mechanical watch WILL last you a lifetime, but just as you can't expect a car to run forever without servicing, so it is with a mechanical watch. Even a 1,000,000 GBP Bugatti Veyron will need a service.
Having said that, 2 years is probably a little soon for a standard service, so it would appear that you have an issue that an AD will need to sort out for you. But again, just like a car, if something is manufactured in large quantities there will unfortunately be problems with the odd one or two pieces. I know that doesn't give you any comfort now, and I can understand your irritation, but that's just the way things are I'm afraid.
In terms of selling the watch and buying a Rolex instead - well, that's up to you, but please don't assume that everything that comes out of the Rolex factory is perfect. As I say above, it is impossible for a company to make a product where every single piece ever produced never have a single problem.
