A Friend recently bought a Navitimer and wanted me to show him how to work it. I saw it and fell in love with it so i will be buying myself one sometime. But, when i read the instructions and found that you had to wind the time back and forth to set the date, i was very under-impressed. Obviously i didn't say that to him, but instead made, as usual, excuses up for Breitling doing this, as i do swear by Breitlings. However, there is a pull out position for date setting when you pull the crown out, so i can imagine that some poor person will think theirs is broken if they don't read the instructions . . . how annoying is that?
