Hey fellow members,

Was browsing around for a rubber strap for a while now. Went to AD and noticed the areo rubber strap looks alot better in person.

Ended up going with aero rubber with polish deployant buckle. 22mm-20mm strap. Very happy with the quality and fit of Breitling's new deployant buckle. Worth the money IMO.

My only con is I think the width of this buckle could be about 2mm thinner. The older buckles looks smaller off pictures I've seen. Have not had chance to see one in person.
Did Breitling increase the width of there new deployant buckles?

Let me know what you guys think.ImageImageImageImage

I really like the aero rubber strap. I've switched by superocean heritage from the mesh a couple of months ago and haven't missed the mesh at all. I'm just using the tang buckle so I can't speak to any changes in the clasp, but from the pictures, yours does look lot bigger than the actual strap. The one thing I love about the aero racer is how flexible it is right out of the box.

I’m comparing the deployant clasp I have on now. Yours does look a lot chunkier. Is that a space I see where the strap goes into the clasp ? The outside width of the larger half of mine measures 23mm.

Mine is measuring at 25mm.. and 27mm on the push button side. That is significantly wider
