Hi guys. This ia my second post. My first post was a long time ago but didn't receive any proper answers.
I have a Breitling Avenger Blackbird 48mm and silver color 24-20mm rubber band.
Image
I wanted to buy a matching color clasp with the case which in this case is the blacksteel one i believe. I checked the market and the price is between 700-900USD. I paid 3100USD for the whole watch including the mechanism and the same material case. So it seemed very expensive to me. Do you have any alternatives in mind? Would you share them with me?
Or should i go with the Breitling clasp and pay all that money?
Any ideas would be highly appreciated. What i am looking for is practical use, matching color with the case and safety of usage, and of course the price, i forgot that.
Thank you so much for all the inputs you would give.

My advice would be to search eBay or a similar site for one that is gently "used". Currently there is one on the bay for $600 which includes a 22mm strap. Granted not the size strap that you use but the buckle is the same. You could sell the strap to offset some the cost of the buckle.

Thanks a lot for the advice. I don't know why but i wasn't able to find any "mildly used" ones in the market. They all have a lot of scratched either inside or outside or both sides. I will keep on looking. Thank you very much.
