Improve the clasp. Add micro-adjustments. Look at Omega, Rolex, and maybe Glashutte Original and others. Look at their clasp and learn. And make Breitlings even better.

I like Breitlng deployant clasps for the rubber straps. It has a very nice micro adjust feature. But I do agree with the sentiment; my Sub's glidelock is superb.

Agreed as well... The rubber strap deployant is better than any other rubber deployant that I've ever had but the bracelet clasp could use some work to catch up to the competition.

Fully agree on a double-clasp micro adjust clasp should come for all kinds of metal bracelets. I've upgraded a few for myself but it is extra cost and a superfluous piece of metal (the original clasp) that takes only place at home...
BTW Breitling has recently improved its rubber-strap clasp so we may be optimistic on this...

100% agree

Likewise. Ironically, I prefer the pin-and-hole clasps that were on older Pilot bracelets (and are still on the mesh and Pro bracelets) to the current concealed-notch clasps. The pin-and-hole clasps are much easier to adjust in a pinch, using something as basic as a toothpick. They're not as convenient as a Glidelock or equivalent, to be sure, but still completely workable. I think it's ironic that, in the name of aesthetics, Breitling took a functional step backwards with the current design. I had a hell of a time adjusting the newer clasp on the Galactic 44. Time for an update.
