    Breitling soh 42 bracelet options

    My sis got this for her husband which he loves, but he wants a bracelet. Google isn't helping - 22mm lugs - would another oem breitling bracelet fit? I should know this... Or aftermarket?

    That looks like it has a bracelet to me, but there’s never any guarantee that other bracelets of the right width will fit. I don’t recall that model coming with a link bracelet. There would be straight-edged bracelets that fit, but he presumably wants curved.

    Could be worth a visit to a stockist and ask perhaps

    A quick google shows somw do have a bracelt , although that model and others use mesh a lot. Mesh would be a lot lighter to wear btw.

    If there are Superocean bracelets that would seem to fit, the lug holes would have to be in the same place. Sometimes they’re not. Breitling are probably the only people who can answer this question.

    That's the non-heritage. I've emailed breitling asking about compatability, good shout Alan.

    The Breitling mesh bracelet for the SOH is a POS. The bracelet is OK, but the clasp bends to the point of needing to be reshaped to close quite frequently. The bracelet with the diagonal links is a hair puller. The bullet bracelet is the best Breitling makes, but does not come on the SOH and would look strange on it. The Rubber strap with the folding deployant is the best option for the SOH IMO. I've had them all. Aftermarket Mesh is never as nice as OEM, It's generally the sizing they don't do well.

    I’m sure that would be fine, if straight ends are acceptable.
