I have a Superocean Heritage 46 Chrono, and have seen several photos around the web of people who have them on Professional iii steel bracelets. This is a really intriguing idea to me, as I've never loved the steel mesh option that Breitling provides.

Problem is, there are lots of inlet/end link options for the 24/20 Professional iii. Does anyone have real insight into which one will fit?

Thanks!

I don't think there are any pictures that look right with the SOH on anything other than the mesh or a rubber/leather strap. I was never a fan of the mesh until I got my SOHC. Have you tried the mesh on or are you just going off pictures?

Justin,

I've seen quite a few photos, actually. There was even a YouTube vid a while back of a guy in Ohio or somewhere that had figured it out and made it happen but a) I thought "too blingy" when I first saw it (you kind of have to commit to the polished option and not the brushed due to the case) and b) now I can't find it.

As for the mesh, I've spent some time with it (and the leather, and a couple different versions of the rubber). I just don't like the gap between the case and the bracelet. That's why I'm after an integrated bracelet with links.

Update - from what I've been able to find all signs point to the Professional iii with 168a endlinks from the SuperAvenger. A couple of people have told me the 167a from the Chronospace would fit, but it's brushed, and not sure how the polished case/brushed bracelet would look.

Has anyone given this a shot by chance?

Input would be appreciated!
