Hi Guys, firstly apologies if there is a better place to ask this question, or it has been answered already

i have a Breitling Colt (A73380) with a stainless steel strap that has lost a single link. I am looking to see if i can find a link and replace it rather than spend upwards of £800 for a complete new one but i am being asked for the strap code. I have been told it should be on the strap itself but i cannot see an Axxx anywhere. The missing link is not one with the screws if that makes a difference

so my question is whether there is a standard code i can quote to ensure i get the right strap link? and also whether there is anywhere people would suggest in purchasing one other than eBay which is where the question has stemmed from

thanks in advance

Hi there, welcome to the forum. Your watch model is the Chrono Colt automatic produced between 2006 - 2011. Assuming it has the original bracelet it should be fitted with the 20mm lug width Professional 2. See here for more information. ... nal2.shtml

If it has the Professional 1 bracelet then see here ... onal.shtml

Ebay is probably your best hope of finding a replacement. 'Swisstime1884' is a good seller and has helped me out in the past. If you post some pics we'll have a better idea.

That’s a Professional 2 bracelet. If you contact swisstime1884 I reckon he’ll be able to help. Wait until you get the watch so you can measure the link to be sure.

thank you so much for your help and i will try and measure the bracelet tonight/tomorrow to make sure.

when i have previously tried contacting a seller of links they had said that they had to have the bracelet A number which they said was on the bracelet itself but mine doesn't seem to have one. would the fact it is a Professional 2 be enough for someone such as the seller you have mentioned?

your help is really appreciated as i have been going round in circles for weeks and didnt fancy forking out for a new one if i could possibly help it
