My 2 month old Colt Quartz is gaining time. Over an 11 day period in January, it gained 4 seconds. Over the next 13 days, another 4 second gain. Repeated for a third period. It was worn maybe 10-20% of all this time, otherwise in a watch roll with other Breitlings (mostly quartz)

My other Breitling high accuracy quartz (Colt Chronograph, Aerospace 79362, Chronospace Evo Night Mission) stay right on. They are worn about as frequently as the Colt Quartz.

I did not find anything in forum searches about this. Any possibility of lack of wrist time causing this? Break-in period needed? Other thoughts? I guess I can return to AD where purchased and see about sending to Breitling, but thought I would try you folks first. Thanks.

Definitely a warranty job. Lack of wrist time would make no difference at all to a quartz watch, and those sort of gains are huge for a SuperQuartz watch.

Thanks for the confirmation that something is seriously amiss. It will be headed to Breitling this week. I assume they will agree and make it right.

Received my Colt Quartz back from Breitling. No charge, warranty. Accuracy seems perfect after 1 week.

I notice item #3 on invoice is "Movement Adjustment". Is there any "adjustment" to Superquartz for accuracy, or is this just a standard wording? I assumed they probably replaced the movement, as that would be the only option, but they do not provide any further info.

Someone more expert than me will hopefully be along, but I understand that you can regulate a Superquartz, so I can't imagine that they will have replaced the movement.
