Hi,
I am wanting to get a leather strap for my Chronomat 41 but can't afford to get one from Breitling directly.

Looking for a third party dark brown croco leather strap with a deployment buckle.

Could someone help with confirming the strap width and also the deployment buckle sizing so that I can order the correct product while looking at ebay & other third party websites.


Thanks in advance.

Lug width is 20mm. If you have an OEM deployant it will be 18mm, if you are buying with the strap then get whatever taper you want - anything between 16 and 20 would work depending on your preference.

Hi Roff,
Thanks for your reply. I may have read somewhere people talking about the PINS needing to be of certain quality and perhaps even being slightly larger ? like 22mm.

Is this correct ? Should I source the pins individually as well to ensure they are of better quality... Not sure how I would be able to ensure the quality of the pins other than from the price...

Thanks in advance.

Check out "War Straps". You can find them on Instagram. Cheap? I'm not sure. Quality? Heck yeah!

You need 20mm springbars, they are physically longer to fit. Diameter of strap ones are thicker than for bracelet but just ask an AD, if they don't give them to you they'll sell them for virtually no money.

Check out Panatime, for the best after market leather or croc straps I've found for a Breitling. The Rios straps range in price from $40 for leather to $179 for real croc!!! Their straps are 7mm thick at the watch end of the strap, just like the OEM Breitling straps. I currently have a Chronomat Evolution and a Chronomat B01 on their Rios croc deployment straps, and they're perfect.
