Really, really cool watch Lowrance!
Top notch service by Koster as well (the new facility is great, right?)
Enjoy the orange monster! I am hoping to see it in the flesh some day :lingsrock:

Regards,
Ronald

I have the same problem with my Coral Emergency and UTC I have bought to accompany the watch but it's 22mm one end and 19mm the other. I have bought a diver pro strap now and was just wondering what you used to cut it down to size. I don't want to mess it up or have it look untidy. Thank you.


I used an exacto knife, but it is nearly impossible to make a clean cut that looks sort of OEM. I wear my Emergency/UTC combo with either an original Breitling UTC strap or the custom made one mentioned earlier in this topic.
I have an extra Orange / Black custom made strap, PM if interested

Great watch. I have an Emergency E76321
Can you tell me the things that the service have done?
Have they change the pins in the bracelet?

All the seals replaced and batteries and probably some extra transmitter testing. Not much movement service since it is a quartz model but not too sure about that to be honest. Don't know about bracelet service since I handed mine over to the service department head only.

It's complete nonsense to do Breitling service on these watches every two years. Any experienced watchmaker can exchange the batteries for around 10€. For the resale value of your watch and keeping the service paperwork a little up to date i would recommend a B-service roughly once every 4 or 5 years.

I just found this thread, and I have to compliment you! That’s really a great project. I’ve been trying to track down that combo, Emergency in Coral with Coral UTC, I even went as far as posting a WTB on this forum.

If anyone stumbles upon this or is looking to make a change, please contact me.
