My 10yo B1 has had its minute hand skipping and not advancing, and I just got quoted at $1200AUD for a service and a new electronic module. Also told of moisture inside the watch - has only ever been to Brietling... Didn't get it done, so it's back to the top drawer.

Meanwhile my 25yo $50 lorus I bought at uni with a chip out of the side of the glass when it fell 50m off my wrist to the rocks below whilst rock climbing has a new battery and is as waterproof and reliable as ever. Shower, swim, ocean never leaves my wrist.

claws on the crown kept pulling threads on my clothing sleeves.
Assuming its the same one, a colleague had Brietling remove them for same reason. He got quoted for their reinstallation at last service!
