Are Cartier watches water-resistant?

All Cartier timepieces are water-resistant by industry standards, but most are not intended for swimming. The Drive De Cartier WSNM0009 is water-resistant up to 3 bar (30 meters/100 feet). This is the least resistance to water that Cartier watches have. On the other hand, we have Cartier timepieces like the Santos 100 Carbon WSSA0006—that are water-resistant up to 10 bar (100 meters/300 feet). Before any contact with water, ensure your crown is pushed all the way in, and do not use the chronograph or crown under the water.

Why is my Breitling running slow / why is my Breitling running fast?

If your Breitling watch is mechanical and it is also brand new, it should operate within -4/+6 seconds per day. Still, if it's not brand new and started running slow, then the cause might be that the crown isn't manually wound. On the other hand, if your Breitling watch is running fast (about 20+ seconds per day), it might be due to the following:

  • The hairspring coils are magnetized and the coils are sticking together. This could also make the watch run slow or even stop.
  • There is a small jolt to the movement so, the coils are entangled.
