    9PM and 3AM Dead zone date stuck

    My watch never came with instructions, so I downloaded them from bell and ross. While reading the instructions on how to set the quick date, I was following along and doing it. Then the date got stuck between 23 and 24. Of course now resume reading on and find out
    much, much later in the instructions, that you are not supposed to adjust the quick date between 9PM and 3AM(it was 10:30PM).

    Anyone know how to fix this, or do I have to send it in to bell and ross, or can a qualified watch repair person do this?
    Is it expensive to fix?

    Does this not seem a little sensitive? Only being able to adjust that within certain hours.

    sorry to hear about your issue cabrio.

    From memory, and stated on the warranty card, the warrant does not cover issues that occur when date adjustment is done between 9PM and 3AM, but happy to be corrected.

    Maybe try adjusting the hour hand until the date clicks over and you can then start again?

    or run the watch flat and adjust the hour and see if the date clicks over?

    just some thought.

    It depends on which movement it happens...
    Servicing on chronos is more expensive than on other complications

    Since you blocked your system, have you tried to rotate the hands to change the date to the next day?

    Or its completly stuck whatever you do?

    If I remember well, complete servicing for such movement is around 300€, plus spare parts if needed..
    If movement have to be replaced, it'll be more pricey...

    Yikes!!!
    I guess if this is a genuine watch though I guess it Is worth it. I suppose I could get it recondition and all that at the same time.
