IMO this watch is serious bang for the buck.

Honestly I can't believe the price I paid on the 'Bay. Plus they were doing an extra 5% bonus eBay bucks so I added/earned $91.58 to my bucks total...almost have enough for a "free" Breitling Strap (again). When/if I sell the bracelet for a couple shekels my final cost will be really mind boggling for so much watch. Def. a sleeper value.

If you’re putting a Navi on rubber, try the rubber mesh strap. It’s easily the most comfortable rubber strap you’re going to find. For $150 for the tang version, you can’t go wrong.


I've been trying to figure out the details of that and other rubber straps, but the pictures on Breitling.com aren't large enough to see it well enough. Is that an actual mesh construction, or does it just have the texture of a mesh on the outside? It appears to just be a faux mesh but I can't be certain. Is there a difference in comfort level between the mesh and other rubber designs?


The mesh is just a pattern on the bracelet. From my experience with other rubber straps, the mesh is super comfortable and easily forms to the wrist better than some of the thicker rubber straps. I have one on my Superocean Heritage and also one on my Chronomat for the summer.

I have always been a sucker for the rubber mesh.
