Good afternoon, I am new on the forum - have tried searching for the topic and was not able to find previous related threads; if, however, there are some, I would be happy to read them.

I am looking for an alternative to the military strap on my Avenger Bandit (my first Breitling). I have had it since August and it seems it is showing signs of wearing off a little (I also take it to the field a lot, it is my main watch). I also think the watch would look better on a titanium strap and it would also have less chances of breaking.

Can you please recommend a Breitling titanium strap that would fit the watch both in size and in style (brushed titanium)? I have tried to find information on the internet, but it was inconclusive. I have also visited a Breitling authorized dealer in Bangkok, Thailand (I am working in SE Asia at the moment) but they did not have anything in stock and the staff could not really recommend a strap; I would like to be ale to ask for a specific strap when I visit a Breitling dealer next time.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer.

As far as I'm aware there currently isn't a bracelet option for the Avenger Bandit. It's unique in terms of material and size in the current Avenger lineup so there aren't any alternative options you could even try. The closest watch I can think of in terms of being a titanium Avenger and with 22mm lugs is the old Chrono Avenger but the end links are clearly different on that bracelet so it won't fit the Bandit.

Basically I think you're out of luck unless Breitling decides to make one in the future.

Thank you, Driver8, for the reply. That would explain why the dealer in Bangkok couldn't recommend anything, I guess.

I will just change the strap if it indeed tears in the future.

I am not familiar with it - do you think it might fit?

Search for the Professional 2 bracelet in Titanium, I got it on my Chrono Avenger Titanium, terrific looking bracelet and much prefer it over the Professional 3. It suits the Bandit as well I think. Might be a struggle to find one though.

I found this thread by searching the internet because I think the stock military strap is fugly on the Avenger Bandit. I found the following online to purchase. I called Breitling today and asked if it worked and they said yes, but can not guarantee that it will line up perfectly.

Do you have any photos of your Chrono Avenger Titanium with this professional 2 bracelet on it?
