Hello,

I’m looking to replace straps on my Breitlings but I can’t seem to find the right size. My watch and deployant buckle take a 19x16 strap. I’m surprised I can’t find this anywhere as both my Breitlings take the same 19x16 strap (Wings Automatic models: B10350 and B10050). I also want a regular strap (non-deployant) for my B10050 but would like it 19x16 so I can switch the old buckle onto the new strap.

I've seen a ton of straps at 20mm but they won't fit and most of them are 18mm at the buckle. I'm not necessarily looking for original Breitling straps although I haven't been able to find them either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

For Aftermarket bands, Hirsch makes some bands that are 19/16mm so you should be able to use that with the non-deployant... however not that many companies make aftermarket breitling straps so you may have to go straight to Breitling for those.. have you tried contacting your local AD? They will be able to order some in for you if Breitling still makes them. I wear my wings on a bracelet.

You can also try Hadley Roma for aftermarket Straps.

Thanks. I'll look into Hirsch. Right now I have the Diver Pro on my B10350, but it came with the 19x16 deployant I'd like to be able to reuse. I looked at the Hadley Roma and there are few options and none in the Breitling look but I'll keep looking. I'll also check with my AD. I thought this would be easier. Did Breitling just stop making these (19x16mm)? Thanks again.

I don't think Breitling would have stopped making the 19/16 straps, but they are probably a lot less popular than other sizes like the 22/18 and 20/18. Its interesting that they made the straps 19/16 but made the pilot bracelet 19/18. Why not be consistant?

Talked to my AD who sold me the watch about 4 years ago with the deployant strap and he'd have to special order it and doesn't think I can buy it without buying a new deployant buckle. I don't see the point in letting me take the deployant buckle, which is in mint condition, off the worn out strap if I can't put it on a new one and save myself some money in the process. I'm very disappointed but will hold out hope until he gets back to me.

To my knowledge, Breitling has always sold the deployant separately. Its only the steel tang buckles that they do not sell separately. I think your AD is wrong... he'll probably find out that he can.

breitlingsource admin is right, you can order the strap seperately. :D
