Breitling does NOT make these available as “parts only”.

I just called and inquired about AR coating being fixed during the $500 service if I send my superocean in. Breitling said it's a $250+ additional cost to replace the crystal. They won't tell me any form prices or what they will or will not do unless I send them my watch. I'm a watchmaker in the US that does swiss luxury watch and mechanical watch repair for a living. It's pretty ridiculous. The turnaround time is also two months. The customer service is abysmal so far, I am dreading sending it in.

Wow $800 and a few months of waiting ? ..I'll pass for now .. I do see these parts leak out to the gray and secondary markets

Breitling will not budge an inch on their methods.
I recently sent my Hurricane Avenger in, I wanted to swap he dial colour from Volcano to Cobra, I also needed the crystal replacing, On no account would they return my Volcano dial or my crystal, Although questionable what further usage i would have got out of it as i put my Dunce hat on and used Polywatch as i thought i could see a mark on it. Rubbed some of the AR coating off. That and a "recommended" service lightened my wallet to the tune of £890.
The original verbal estimate i had received was in the region of £450 before the £250 dial was added. Don't know where the difference came from, they close ranks when you question anything.

i will use Authorised Third party service centres in future, Never directly use Breitling again.
